How good are bliss balls?  If you haven’t already tried them yet you can read my other recipes here and here.  They make a great snack, quick pick me up, and are handy to chuck in your bag for when you feel a bit peckish.  Today I share these ones that are nut free.  They are just as delicious but great to add to school lunches if your child goes to a nut free school.


This recipe for Seedy Bliss Balls is from and is super easy and quick.


My kids love them and I hope your kids too.  Dairy free, nut free, can be gluten free, refined sugar free.



  • 8 medjool dates pitted and soaked
  • 1 cup of desiccated coconut
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey or rice malt syrup
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoon sunflower seeds
  • 3 tablespoon pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons cacao



  1. Drain the soaked dates and put them and all the other ingredients in the blender.  Process until combined.  Add a little more water to combine if necessary.
  2. Roll into balls and keep in the fridge.

You can mix up the ingredients and play around with them if you like.  If you don’t want the chocolate flavour take out the cacao.
