What if you’re looking for something raspberry and healthy? Let me point your attention to the beautiful bliss balls. They are delicious, nutritious, and easy to make. Besides, I love having healthy treats like these, so we always have a healthy snacking option.

What are Bliss Balls?

Bliss balls are energy balls made with healthy ingredients, such as nuts, coconut, dried fruit, and oats. They are typically sweetened with natural sweeteners, such as dates or maple syrup.

Bliss balls are perfect for on-the-go snacking because they’re easy to pack. It also helps that they’re delicious and healthy. They’re also a great way to get in your daily fruits and whole grains.

Key Ingredients

You can find the full printable recipe, including ingredient quantities, below. But first, here are some explanations of ingredients and steps to help you make this recipe perfect every time.

  • Oats — You can use rolled oats or old-fashioned oats. If you’re using instant oats, increase the quantity by at least 1/4 cup.
  • Flax — We’ll add some ground flax seeds to increase the cohesiveness of these tasty bites. You can substitute ground chia seeds.
  • Almond flour — Adding some almond flour to the batter helps with the consistency and flavor.
  • Coconut — We’ll use shredded coconut in the batter and roll the finished balls in shredded coconut.
  • Coconut Oil — Adding coconut oil to the batter makes the bliss balls firmer once they are chilled. You can use refined coconut oil (for less coconut flavor) or unrefined (for more coconut flavor).
  • Syrup — I prefer agave nectar, but you can substitute maple syrup or bee-free honey.
  • Raspberries — You can use fresh, but I like using frozen raspberries because I always have them in my freezer.

Favorite Add-Ins

You can serve these raspberry bliss bites as-is. But here are some tasty add-ins that can change up the flavor:

  • Chocolate chips — Make dark chocolate raspberry bliss balls by adding mini chocolate chips to the batter.
  • More Chocolate — You can also add drizzles of dairy-free magic shell chocolate over the top of your bites.
  • Chopped Almonds — Add finely chopped almonds to the batter for texture and flavor.

Storage Tips

I recommend storing these raspberry treats in the fridge, especially in the summer when warmer temperatures can cause them to go bad quickly. You can freeze them in a freezer-safe container for up to 2 months.

    Coconut oil is mentioned in the instructions but not listed in the ingredients. What would be the amount to use in this recipe? Thanks!

      Hi Kat. There must have been a glitch in the recipe card, because coconut oil is showing for me. The recipe calls for 2 tablespoons. Hope this is helpful!
