These Almond Butter Bliss Balls are the perfect snack to take to the gym or work. They’re so easy to make, I made the batch of bliss balls in just 5 minutes!

 I love the chewy texture and the little bites of almond you get. They’re mostly sweetened using Medjool dates and honey, so you get this caramelised and complex sweetness that is just too good!

They’re pretty guilt-free they are as well. Each bliss ball is packed with protein, fiber, vitamin E, potassium and more. Even a health freak like me would eat more than one.

They can accommodate many different dietary needs. They’re gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free and refined sugar free.

tips

1. Ingredients

I recommend using just Medjool dates as I don’t think different dates will produce the same complex sweetness or the sticky consistency needed for making the balls. If you don’t have almond meal, you can just add another 50 grams of almonds instead. Feel free to use raw or roasted almonds. A good substitute for honey could be maple syrup, agave nectar, rice malt syrup or brown rice syrup. 

2. Equipment

You need a food processor or a blender. Other than this, you would need a large mixing bowl, spatula, a tablespoon and some baking paper to place the bliss balls on.

3. Use an ice cream scoop

I like to have consistently sized treats and one of the best ways to do so would be to use an ice-cream scoop. I used an ice cream scoop to size and help me shape the bliss balls. I really love using my OXO Level Ice Cream Scoop and I think it’s one of those tools you must have if you bake often. I use when making cupcakes, muffins, cookies and more. 

4. Freeze the leftovers

These bliss balls freeze really well. I would recommend doubling the recipe and freezing them in small containers or Ziploc bags. This way you can easily take them as snacks anywhere and have a good supply of them ready to go.

4. Use it as a base with tarts

I would also use this bliss ball recipe as a good gluten-free or vegan tart base. A much healthier option to using a typical cookie and butter mixture as a no bake base. I think making a chocolate tart with this would be amazing.

Add the almonds, almond meal and honey and continue blitzing until you reach the texture of your choice. You could leave the almonds chunkier or finer. Check the mixture to see if it rolls into a ball easily. If it is too dry, add some honey.
