5 Ingredient Chocolate Bliss Balls (Vegan, Nut & Gluten free)

These allergy free morsels of goodness were developed as a lunch box snack. My little ones school is designated nut free and most of the bliss balls/ bars out there had nuts in some form or, the other. What’s an innovative mother to do but, to develop her own 5 ingredient and 2 step recipe?!


We need,

  • Pitted Dates – 1 cup
  • Desiccated Coconut – 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons more to roll in
  • Sunflower Seed Butter – 1/4 cup
  • Cocoa Powder – 4 tablespoons
  • Vanilla Bean Paste – 1 teaspoon


I used my trusty Kitchen Aid Food Processor to make this recipe.

  1. Pulse the dates, dessicated coconut, sun butter, cocoa powder and vanilla bean paste until a sticky dough forms.
  2. Use a spoon to scoop out bits of dough, roll it into a ball and then roll in Dessicated coconut!

Best stored in the fridge for up to 2 weeks (I promise they do not last half as long!!). Enjoy!

Please do share your favourite 5 ingredients or less recipes with me in the comments below ๐Ÿ˜Š

Edit: I’ve been contacted since the original posting of this recipe by an individual suggesting that, I have not correctly credited this recipe to them. I would like reiterate that this recipe was developed in January 2015 after trawling the net for recipes as, I could not find very many nut free bliss ball recipes. At the time, when I had first tried making these I had submitted it to this website too – http://www.mouthsofmums.com.au/recipe/nut-free-bliss-balls/


I am an enthusiastic plant based home cook and baker who delights in sharing my creations on unsuspecting non vegans, when they least expect it! When not recipe developing, testing or making, I’m found organising and/ or writing, the two other passions of my life โค๏ธ
