I have never tried making bliss balls before, but I think I will give it a go, the only change I might make is swapping dried cranberries for the saltanas, I found the medjool dates at Woolworths this afternoon. I’m looking forward to tasting them, thank you for sharing.

Melissa I make a very simikar bliss ball to these with dried cranberries all the time for school and they are great.

Just wondering what I could use in place of the rolled oats? This looks great I can’t wait to make them for my son 🙂

ooh I’m so sorry Emma, I am actually unsure what would be the best choice to replace the oats, as they help to bind it all together.

Harmony October 10, 2016 - 9:38 AM love to try making these bliss balls for my kids but dont have a food processor 🙁 How else could i make them
Thanks 🙂

Are they freezer friendly?

Caroline January 21, 2017 - 1:21 AM

They taste good! Made the mistake of getting the kids to help me after cleaning the floor and needless to say, had to vacuum again as the coconut went everywhere! Also, my mixture didn’t bind?! I added more dates but had to add about a tablespoon of honey in the end. Thanks though – a nice, pretty quick and healthy snack alternative!

Made the fruity bliss balls . Turned out fantastic thanks . Need to keep the processor running till it forms a paste. It most certainly did and they taste yum !

Katrina - The Organised Housewife November 20, 2017 - 10:58 AM

Oh that’s great to hear Shelly. Thank you for sharing your feedback

Mandy July 18, 2018 - 12:29 PM

Hi there

Katrina - The Organised Housewife July 18, 2018 - 12:53 PM

I don’t freeze them because we eat them within a few days 😉 but I have heard many people freeze them with success. hope that helps!
