Recept på svenska lite längre ner

Chocolate (heaven) bliss balls! Coated with dark chocolate and decorated with some extremely crunchy buckwheat hearts! YUM!


The best thing about these treats is that you only need hazelnuts, dates, coconut shred, and cacao powder. Nothing else! Those bliss balls are perfect on the go, on travels, a pre-dinner snack, after a workout, or at any time!

I always crave for something sweet in the evening, and not always I have a piece of cake (lol), so then I go for a bliss ball! You only need to eat one of them to feel satisfied and energized, they are extremely filling even though they are quite small.

Let us go to the recipe! As promised, you only need those 4 ingredients and a good high-speed blender or food processor. (My favorite tool in the kitchen!) Don't try this recipe in a regular blender, the motor will not hold the pressure! I have made that mistake twice!;)

I love bliss balls, and prefer to have some in the fridge all the time. Because as you know, those sweet cravings are not always expected, so I rather be prefered then without anything sweet!

Luckely those bliss balls are vegan, sugar free and gluten free! A super healthy treat and snack!



Makes many bliss balls!



  • 150 g hazelnuts (roasted for 10 minutes at 200-degree Celsius, after cooled down, remove the loose skin by rubbing it off)
  • 90 g dates, pitted
  • 40 g shredded coconut
  • 2 tbsp cacao (raw or unsweetened!

Optional to garnish: 50 g dark vegan chocolate



  1. Process all the 4 ingredients in a high-speed blender or food processor until it sticks together well. For a finer texture, process some more.
  2. Form balls out of the dough. (If you don't eat the dough straight out of the blender!)
  3. If you would like to coat them with melted chocolate, simply melt the chocolate in a water bath, then roll the bliss balls in the melted chocolate, or dip them. Decorate as wished. Guys, be creative! Freeze for a couple minutes for the chocolate to set.
  4. Storage in an airtight container in the fridge!
  5. Enjoy whenever you feel you need something sweet or just need something with chocolate!!

Hasselnötspraliner doppade i choklad







150 g rostade hasselnötter


90 g dadlar, urkärnade


40 g riven kokos


2 msk kakao pulver


50 g mörk choklad



Mixa alla ingredienserna förutom chokladen, till en lite klibbig deg. Forma bollar av degen. Smält chokladen, doppa sedan bollarna i den smälta chokladen. Dekorera gärna pralinerna med tex hackade hasselnötter, lite kokos eller nåt annat gott. Var kreativ! Frys pralinerna en stund så att chokladen stelnar. Förvaras i lufttät burk i kylskåpet. Du kan förvara pralinerna i kylskåpet i några veckor eller i frysen ca. 6 månader.

    Hi dear Janina!
    Yes you could use almonds instead, roast them 5 or 10 minutes and blend them with the other ingredients. You can also try it with any other nuts you have at home, just remember that every nut has its own flavor, so take the ones you like the most!

    Hi Amy, yes of course! Raisins, apricots, plums would work!
