Easy Vegan Bliss Ball Recipes


Sunny Apricot Bliss Balls from The Jolly Beetroot

I’ll be attending my first event at the Orange County Active & Vegan for Life Meetup group this weekend. We’re gonna hang out at the beach, have munchies and roast vegan marshmallows. I thought about bringing brownies to share, but I decided to bring bliss balls instead.

I’ve never made bliss balls before, but I like that they’re generally healthy, easy to transport and usually a cinch to make. I’ve been searching for recipes and found LOTS of them. Here’s what caught my eye.

Peanut Butter Pretzel Balls

Dana from The Minimalist Baker says you’re gonna love her Peanut Butter Pretzel Balls because they’re, “peanut buttery, studded with pretzels, swimming in chocolate, salty, sweet, sharable, decadent, satisfying and borderline addictive.” I think she’s right!

Raw Banana Bread Balls

These Raw Banana Bread Balls from Candace at Raw Mountain Kitchen enticed me, but you need a dehydrator to make them. I don’t have a dehydrator – bummer! Maybe one day I’ll make these, but not this weekend.

Pistachio Chocolate Pecan Balls

Candace from Raw Mountain Kitchen really knows how to have a ball because I’m also drooling over her Pistachio Chocolate Pecan Balls. But darn it – they also require a dehydrator. But wait! I just found Zaatar & Quinoa’s Pistachio Date Bites and they don’t need a dehydrator.

Amaretto Cacao Truffles

I love that these Amaretto Cacao Truffles from The Road Not Processed are rich and yet healthful. They’re not vegan, but can be easily veganized by using coconut milk yogurt in place of dairy yogurt. Another intriguing cacao recipe I found is Simplify Your Health’s Raw Cacao, Almond Pulp & Coconut Balls.

Fruit & Nut Balls

Yummyvege says she doesn’t know how to describe her Fruit & Nut Balls except to say that they’re, “Yummy! And healthy! And quick and easy to make!” Sounds like a win, win, win! My blogger friend Elaine at Foodbod also makes some Fruit Balls that look delicious!

Fig and Lime Bliss Balls

These zesty, tangy, sweet and subtly spiced Fig and Lime Bone Booster Bliss Balls from The Jolly Beetroot look delicious and are also jam packed with calcium.

Butterscotch Bliss Balls with Maca

These delightful Butterscotch Bliss Balls contain the superfood, Maca, which is supposed to increase energy, stamina and sexual function. This recipe uses honey, but it can be swapped with maple syrup or another vegan sweetener.

Walnut Bliss Balls

This Rawsome Vegan Life’s Walnut Bliss Balls have only a few ingredients, all of which are super foods.

Raw Vegan Lemon Meltaway Balls

The Healthy Family and Home’s Raw Vegan Lemon Meltaway Balls look like little balls of Spring. I bet they’d be a hit at the Meetup I’m going to.

Raw Cocoa Bliss Balls

Another recipe that caught my eye is Eat Less Sugar, You’re Sweet Enough’s Raw Cocoa Bliss Balls.

Macadamia Macaroon Balls

It’s fun to say Macadamia Macaroon Balls, but I’m sure it’s even more fun to eat them!

Sunny Apricot Bliss Balls

Niki from The Jolly Beetroot said her Sunny Apricot Bliss Balls, “are the perfect summertime treat to pop in a lunchbox or enjoy with a mid-afternoon cup of tea. I think the Orange Coconut Date Bites I found on Practice What You Preach would also be perfect for a summertime treat.

Coconut-date Bliss Balls

Coconut-date Bliss Balls are  a classic snack for health conscious folks.

Chocolate and Avo Balls

I’ve made chocolate pudding with avocado and it was delicious!! CT Veganista uses this combo to make her Chocolate and Avo Balls. Both yummy and healthy!

  1. Nom nom nom…I’m practically licking my computer screen over those Macadamia Macaroon Balls. Your Meetup peeps are soooo lucky!

  2. Poppy says:

    Oh my gosh, Celeste, what a selection! How to choose? I can vouch for the lemon melt away balls, I’ve tried that recipe and loved it, really refreshing.. I’m also drooling over the peanut butter pretzel, butterscotch and coconut macaroon! Yum! I’ll have to make some I guess ;)! I hope you have a great time at your meet up and you’ll be pleased to know that I found a local vegan group and have registered with them! Thank you for encouraging me 🙂

    • Those lemon melt away balls look AMAZING and since you give them a thumbs up I may have to go for those. I’m SO excited that you found a local vegan group Poppy – that’s wonderful!! You’ll have to keep me posted about it and let me know how you like it. The groups that I belong to are all very different, and I’d like to hear what kind of activities your group does.

      Oh, and send me an email sometime before you leave with your phone number and I’ll email you back with mine. My email is celestedimilla@yahoo.com. We’re gonna have so much fun!!!
      Celeste 🙂

      • Poppy says:

        Go for it, I think you’ll love them!
        I know I’m so excited too, I feel it’s a big step for me and it really is because you encouraged me so thank you Celeste! They are doing a campaigning get together at a fair soon but I won’t be able to make it, I hope I can make the next meet up though!
        I’ll email you now! I’m dying with excitement over here! 😀 xo

  3. The cheekiness in me really wants to make a joke about all these balls in my face…but I won’t. I WILL, however, be making some of these delicious-looking recipes and passing them to our peeps! Thanks once again for a great collection (“Balls” said the Queen, “If I had two, I’d be King!”)

    Good heavens, Celeste ! – not a single mention of even one of the many blissfull balls created by Elaine of Foodbod (http://wp.me/p40gKT-Ju) ??? http://wp.me/p40gKT-tK is another example, and there are many more. I’m surprised you didn’t mention her: I found your blog through her “Why We Blog” series …

    • Good heavens, you’re right! I love, love Elaine and her lovely blog and had forgotten about all of her balls (hehe – that sounds kind of funny). Anyway, I’ve rectified the situation. Hope you’re having a great week! Celeste 🙂

  5. Thanks so much for the shout out! love the posting 🙂

  6. Thanks so much for the shout out! Love the posting 🙂
    I must try to make some more of these

    • Thank you for sharing such a wonderful recipe!! And I should tell you that I’m going back and forth between making your recipe and the Lemon Meltaway Balls. Hope you’re having a great week! Celeste 🙂

  7. megan says:

    Amaretto Cacao Truffles, for real? I’m on it!

  8. OMG! So many yummy recipes! I’m going to have to try a few. And thanks for including mine Celeste 🙂

  9. Lorrie Wenzler says:

    All look soooo delicious!

  10. These make some great ideas for treats Celeste

    • Thanks for popping by and…I was going to write for checking out my balls, but then I thought better of that – hehe! Anywho, I hope you’re having a lovely week! Celeste 🙂

      • Haha Celeste, good one 🙂 well guess what I’m a vegan for the next few days, first time in my life that I do a detox, first day today, the killer is no oil, no lemon, no legumes. I love veggies otherwise argh so not sure about a great week!!! Lol

    • How exciting! I follow a no extracted oil diet. I get my fats from whole foods like avocados and nuts. I’m not sure if that’s what you’re doing, or if you’re not doing any fats at all (now that would be really hard!). The no oil thing takes some getting used to, but once you learn some tricks it’s not so bad. I wish you the best of luck with your detox! Celeste 🙂

      • Thanks a lot Celeste, no I can’t have avocado or nuts yet. It’s ok it’s only for 4 days, 1 down 3 to go and I see him back on Monday and he will tell me what else I can have. I’m glad I’m doing this, I need to flush all toxins out. 🙂

  11. Ooh, they all look fab!!!!! Thank you so much for including me xxx

  12. diahannreyes says:

    Seriously, Celeste- you make being a vegan look so foodie appealing. I think you could make a ton of money running an online store with all these vegan goodies… although I’m sure you probably have a gzillion other things going on in your life.

    • Being vegan IS foodie appealing Diahanna!! At least that’s my take on it. As far as an online store, you’re so right that I don’t have time for that. Oh well. 🙂

  13. mllaurie says:

    Oh my goodness, you’re killing me! I’m trying to cut out sugar, and these all look amazing, especially those peanut butter pretzel balls. Swooning over here!!! 🙂

    • mllaurie says:

      Just looked at the recipe…no sugar! Yippeeeee! Hugs!

      • That’s what I like about bliss ball recipes – a lot of them are pretty healthy. Congrats with doing the no sugar thing. I try and try and try to do that, but sometimes it’s hard. I really have dramatically cut down on my sugar consumption, however; so maybe that’s enough. I wish you lots of luck with the no sugar thing – you can do it chica!! Celeste 🙂

  14. April @ Simplify Your Health says:

    Wow! Great selection. Making ‘bliss balls’ is my fav vegan treat 🙂 thanks for mentioning me in here along with such great recipes! I love balls with hazelnut or pecans in them, but I want to try something lemony next too. Just can’t get enough balls 😀 sorry, I couldn’t help it!!

  15. bessie says:

    Mmmm these all look delicious! It’s going to be hard to decide which ones to make first!!

  16. Thanks for linking me! Bliss balls are great for this kind of thing because they’re easily transportable as well. If you want to take a brownie this is my favourite recipe: http://minimaleats.com/gluten-free-vegan-brownie/ I don’t have brownie on my blog because I can’t beat this one!

  17. emmajh23 says:

    So many recipes! They look delicious – I can’t wait to make the Raw Vegan Lemon Meltaway Balls and thank you for including mine!

  18. My family is having a Paella (Spanish cookout) this weekend and I think I’ll be supplying the dessert with one of these! But how to choose?!

  19. Yum! They all look good! I don’t have a dehydrator, either. Do you think we should invest in one? 🙂

    • Yea, I think we should get dehydrators. There are just so many great dehydrator recipes out there, it’s a shame to limit ourselves without one. One day! 🙂

  20. benevolentvegan says:

    An assortment of these would be so great boxed up and given as a gift. They all look absolutely scrumptious!

  21. Geraldine says:

    yumm…woot, right now! 🙂

  22. mmmarzipan says:

    Oh my gosh! So many great and delish ideas in one post!

  23. I can’t even pick out which one I want to make first. So many yummy ideas – thanks for the round-up 🙂

  24. onehotveggie says:

    Yum! I’ve never made little balls like this but you have inspired me to try. Thanks for a great post!!!

  25. reocochran says:

    I would like one of each, I would particularly like the bliss balls (either apricot or date flavored)! I also love peanut butter and pecans, so there would be two more I would need to try. And to be fair, any and all of them would taste fantastic! Love this and am always grateful for some healthy alternatives, Celeste!

  26. berealyoga says:

    Those lemon melt-aways look like a little piece of heaven!! Great collection, thanks for sharing.:)

  27. April @ Simplify Your Health says:

    Celeste, something strange has happened. I got another ping back for my recipe you used here, but the link is another site that has used your post in its entirety? The site is called: kinkementary.net/vegetariandating. Has that got anything to do with you before I mark it as spam? Do you know anything about it?

  28. April @ Simplify Your Health says:

    Ummm I don’t think it is you, I just went to their homepage… its a bit… well, it isn’t abut food!

  29. Really love them, what a variety !

  30. Celeste! You’ve gotta a lotta balls in the air!! I really want to hang out on the beach with you and the other vegans! I’m REALLY mad I’m on the east coast!!

  31. Sophie33 says:

    These are all tasty treats .I just love them all,…of course! I made a few of them already & the rest, I am all Going to make,…Yum Yum Yum! 😃

  32. reocochran says:

    I had a couple of questions, is there a ‘good’ type of coconut, vegans choose to buy? Also, are there certain brands of pretzels that are ‘best’ if trying to stay healthy with mainly whole wheat flour? Thanks, Celeste! I will check back soon… Smiles, Robin

    • Great questions Robin! As far as coconut, I use a brand called Let’s Do Organic. Their coconut is organic (obviously!) and has no sulfites or preservatives. Any organic and unsweetened coconut would be fine, however. Pretzels are not exactly a health food, but Snyders are probably the healthiest brand you can get. Of course, even with Snyders, you have to be selective about which ones you choose. Here’s a link to a great choice: http://www.snydersofhanover.com/products/pretzels/unsalted-minis.html
      Smiles to you too chica! 🙂

    Oh. My. Gosh. I’d love to try them all. Maybe I’ll start with the lemony ones. Hmmm 😉

  35. eatpraybake says:

    Yums! And I agree with Abby 🙂
