Salted Caramel Bliss Balls


Yeild:  12 balls (for double batch, simply double the quantities)

Time to make:  10 minutes

Equipment Needed:  

 Food Processor or Blender

Medium sized Mixing Bowl

Small bowl for rolling in coconut


 250 grams Soaked Medjool Dates (apx one cup)

Pinch of Himalayan Salt

 1/2 Cup of Unroasted Almonds 

1/2 Cup of Shredded Coconut

1 tsp Vanilla extract

2 TBSP Maple Syrup

 1/4 Cup of Amazonia Raw Salted Caramel Protein Powder (Optional)

3 TBSP of Desiccated Coconut (enough for coating the outside)

How to Prepare:


Soak dates in hot water for about 5-10 minutes and drain.  Place drained dates in food processor or blender with all remaining ingredients except desiccated coconut and maple syrup.  (The maple syrup is used to add a little moisture to the mixture if it gets too dry and adds some sweetness).  Pulse all ingredients throughly until almonds are chopped well and dates are like a thick paste.

Place the pulsed mixture into a medium sized mixing bowl and knead a few times with your hands to make sure everything is mixed well.  If the mixture needs a little moisture or sweetness, add 1-2 TBSP of maple syrup and mix well.

Take about a 2 TBSP size of mixture into hands and roll between your palms into little balls.  Roll each ball in the dessicated coconut mixture and set aside.

Once all balls are rolled out, store in the refrigerator.   


Enjoy and Happy Rolling!
