    Made these for my sick 5yo who isn't eating. He loved them and I was pleased I could get something nutritious in his tummy. Little hard to roll (crumbled) but was able to just squeeze and shape in my hand.

    So easy and really yum. I tried using just 15g cocoa and that wasn't enough. It doesn't need the coconut oil I think.

    Yummy and easy to make.  I added dried cranberries as I did not have enough dates.  Although I used pitted dates, I should have checked each date because there were a number of date pits in the mix.

    Big tick from all 5 of us! tmrc_emoticons.) My picky coeliac son (4 years old) devoured these. In fact they disappeared so quickly I had to make a second batch!! 

    I did not add coconut oil, and realised afterwards that I actually had forgotten to add the vanilla. Yum nonetheless! 

    THANK YOU!

    Submitted by MelbourneHolli on 21. November 2015 - 18:22.

    My son loves these as a treat in his lunchbox. I make them nut free by subbing the 120grams of nuts with a combination of pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, linseed and sesame seeds. I also use raw cacoa powder.  These are great. Thank you!

    Yummy! I didn't have enough dates so I used a mix of dates, dried figs and sultanas. Also, instead of 20 g of cashews it was a mix of cashews and walnuts. Even my four year daughter loved them.

    Submitted by Mypatrol on 30. April 2015 - 15:36.

    Loved these - added some chia & linseed at step 1 & gave it an extra bit of time to get it really fine. Also added a spoon full of rice malt syrup & then rolled in Chia seeds instead of coconut.

    These were a huge hit at worktmrc_emoticons.)

    These are my "go to" bliss balls!

    So easy and yummy, and everyone who tastes them wants the recipe!

    I often sub in different nuts or seeds depending on what I've got, and as long as the quantities are similar they work every time and taste great.

    Thanks for a great recipe!

    Ok well I have the fussiest, non veggie eating child IN THE UNIVERSE. Never eaten a bliss ball in his entire life. I told him these were chocolate balls and he ate one!!! I was so happy I was fist pumping the air when he wasn't looking. Now I will be making a triple batch next time. He loves them and can't get enough 'chocolate balls'. Thank you, thank you, thank you. So happy to be getting some guilt free food into him finally!

    Submitted by Trace4061 on 16. June 2014 - 19:19.

    Delicious! Half of them were gone before I finished making them so I made another batch. 

    I used half fresh medjool and half sayer(packet) dates.I halved the cocoa to 10g and only added 40g coconut and added a slug of pure maple syrup, all other ingredients were the same.

    I blitzed all ingredients together at once on speed 10 for 17 seconds then rolled in coconut. Yum yum yum!
