Prep Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 10 bliss balls

Ingredients 

  • 1 cup gluten free rolled oats
  • ½ cup cashew butter
  • 50 grams chocolate protein powder *I used Ora Organic, but any brand will work
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut oil room temp
  • 2 medjool dates pits removed
  • 2 flax eggs 2 Tbsp (16 grams) ground flax mixed with 6 Tbsp water left to sit for 5-10 mins
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • ¼ cup cacao nibs or mini chocolate chips
  • 2 Tablespoons hemp seeds optional

Instructions

  • First make the flax eggs by adding 2 Tbsp ground flax and 6 Tbsp water to a small bowl. Let sit 5-10 minutes.
  • Add all your ingredients except the cacao nibs/chocolate chips to a food processor/blender. Blend until combined into a thick mixture, scraping down the sides as needed.
  • Once a thick mixture is formed, use a spatula or your hands to gently fold in the cacao nibs/ mini chocolate chips.
  • Using your hands, roll the dough into 10-12 large bliss balls that are about 2 inches in diameter and place onto a sheet pan or plate covered with parchment paper. For an extra delicious & protein-packed treat, roll the bliss balls in hemp seeds before adding to the fridge.
  • Bliss Balls can be eaten right away but are best enjoyed after sitting in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Bliss balls can be stored in a closed container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks or in the freezer up to 1 month. I recommend storing between layers of parchment paper so they do not stick together.
  • Coconut oil can be subbed for more cashew butter to make this recipe oil-free
  • Medjool dates can be subbed with any dried fruit for this recipe, but keep in mind it will change the flavor of these bliss balls. 
  • Protein powder can be swapped for cacao powder for the same chocolate flavor
  • Sub flax eggs 1:1 with chia eggs for similar results
