These coconut cacao bliss balls are the perfect snack or treat to satisfy that sweet tooth. Vegan, gluten free, and sugar-free! Doesn’t get much better than that.


  • 1 cup unsweetened toasted coconut flakes
  • 3/4 cup raw walnuts, unsalted
  • 3/4 cup raw cashews, unsalted
  • 4 dates, softened (see note below)
  • 1/2 cup coconut butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup cashew milk (or nut milk of choice)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs


  1. Blend all ingredients except the cacao nibs in a food processor until dough is achieved. Add in the cacao nibs and pulse a few times to slightly break them up.
  2. Roll dough into balls, place on a tray lined with parchment paper, and let chill in the freezer for a few minutes.
  3. Store in the freezer. I recommend letting them thaw for a few minutes before you eat them.


  1. These balls are not overly sweet so if you prefer them sweeter I would add in 1-2 tbsp maple syrup or coconut sugar.
  2. This recipe calls for cacao nibs which are crunchy and have a rich chocolate flavor (but no sugar). You can use chocolate chips instead if prefer the balls sweeter!
  3. Soften the dates by letting them sit in hot water for 10 minutes. Remember to take out the pit!
