I am all about healthy delicious recipes that don’t involve a lot of preparation and use easy to find ingredients. Ingredients that you can find at any major supermarket or at your local health food shop, food markets or even on-line.

These caramel balls definitely meet all of the above! You only need four ingredients to make these bliss balls and this recipe involves three easy steps.

There are also these Salted Caramel Truffles or these Raw Caramel Macadamia Bliss Balls if you are fan of caramel.


Gluten & Dairy Free – suitable for people with gluten & dairy intolerances.

Nut Free Option – substitute the almonds with shredded coconut to make nut free.

Easy to Make – this recipe involves three steps which take less than ten minutes to complete.

Healthy wholefood ingredients – which are easy to find at any supermarket, health store, food markets or on-line store.

Medjool Dates – I highly recommend that you use Medjool dates. They are usually larger & softer than regular dates, which makes them easier to process. Plus for this recipe, the caramel flavour comes from the medjool dates. You will not find the same caramel taste in regular dates. If you do use regular dates, you will need to increase the amount that you use. I have found that one Medjool date equals approximately 1.5 regular dates. 

Almonds (or shredded coconut) – Depending on if you have allergies/intolerances, you can use either almonds or shredded coconut. You could also make these bliss balls with a different nut like cashews or macadamias.

Sea Salt – you only need a pinch of sea salt or Himalayan salt

Desiccated Coconut – this is for coating the bliss balls. You can even avoid this step if you too (to save on a couple of minutes of time) and you can also use shredded coconut.


I love making bliss balls like these coconut rough bliss balls or these caramel macadamia bliss balls or even lamington bliss balls. They are all so easy to make!

STEP 1: Process the ingredients – add the dates, almonds (or shredded coconut) and sea salt to your food processor and process until the ingredients form a mixture that sticks together when pressed.

STEP 2: Using your hands roll into bite-sized balls and placed on a lined baking tray. You should be able to make 12-14 from the mixture.

Step 3 – Roll the balls in the desiccated coconut and store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator until ready to eat.

Can I use regular dates?

If you don’t have Medjool dates, on hand you can use regular dates. However I find that these dates are quite a bit smaller and are not as soft, plus they don’t have the same caramel flavour as Medjool dates.
If you are using regular dates, I would suggest using 1.5x the number of Medjool dates required to make this recipe. You will also need to soak the regular dates in hot water for 5 minutes, then drain them before adding to your food processor with the rest of the ingredients.

I have a nut allergy, can I substitute the nuts?

Yes you can substitute the nuts with more coconut

How do I store these bliss balls?

Keep these bliss balls stored in the refrigerator in an air-tight container for up to one week or in your freezer for up to 6 months.
