Equipment

  • Food processor to blend ingredient. I use Ninja food processor.

Ingredients
 
 

  • 15 medjool dates If dates are dry, then soak them in hot water for 10 minutes.
  • ½ cup almond 90 grams
  • ¼ cup dessicated coconut 20 grams
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ cup whey protein 40 grams

Instructions
 

  • First, you need to wash the dates and remove the stone. Soak them in hot water for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes drain the water and add these dates to the food processor.
    Now add almonds, desiccated coconut, sea salt & whey protein. You can use your own protein powder as per dietary requirements or just skip it. (pic 1-4)
    dates are cleaned and soaked and added in the food processor with other ingredients.
  • Then blend everything until they make a sticky dough and combined very well.
    Now roll them into small bite-sized balls. Finally, coat them with desiccated coconut and enjoy. (pic 5-8)
    blended mixture rolled into small balls and coated with coconut.

Notes

Tips
  • Use protein powder as per dietary requirements. I am using whey protein, but you can add any vegan protein powder to make vegan bliss balls.
  • Soaking dates are optional. But if dates looking a bit dry then soaking in hot water makes them soft. It also helps in releasing their caramel flavor.
  • If the mixture looks dry, add 2-3 dates and blend them again.
