Total Time: 10 minutes

Get ready to make the best vegan bliss balls with our easy-to-follow blueprint! Choose from the basic energy ball ingredients and add lots of tasty coating ideas of your choice. Enjoy vegan bliss balls for a quick snack any time of the day!


Basic Ingredients

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup dates or raisins
  • 1 cup nut butter
  • Spices of your choice

Coating Ideas

  • Chopped nuts
  • Cocoa powder
  • Shredded coconut
  • Cocoa nibs
  • Puffed grains


  1. Add all ingredients to your food processor. Pulse and process until well combined — this may take 1-2 minutes.
  2. If needed, stop and scrape down the sides, then process again until a homogenous and slightly sticky texture forms.
  3. Check with your hands to see whether you need to adjust with either dry or wet ingredients so you’ll be able to roll your dough.
  4. Using wetted hands, get bite-sized pieces of the energy ball mixture and roll them into little balls.
  5. Gather any coatings if you want to add any and place them in little individual bowls.
  6. Roll your energy balls gently in the coating, then place them next to each other on a parchment paper-lined plate.
  7. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to let them firm up or enjoy immediately!


  • Vegan bliss balls can usually be stored in the fridge for up to 1 week and in the freezer for around 3 months or longer.
  • Feel free to swap any ingredients you can’t have or don’t like and get crazy with the add-ins and coatings! Find lots of ideas in the article above.
