Date-Free Peanut Butter Bliss Balls

I absolutely love peanut butter, so it was only a matter of time before I created some peanut butter bliss balls. These are the perfect 4pm snack, as they help to regulate blood sugar levels and stave off sugar cravings. Oh, and they taste amazing. Make a batch and store them in the fridge for an easy, grab-and-go snack.


Peanut Butter Bliss Balls

Makes: 12


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup natural, peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp cacao
  • 1 1/2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs (optional)


  1. In a high-powered blender or food processor, add all of the ingredients except the cacao nibs and blend until the ingredients are combined and mixture sticks together. If the mixture is too wet, add more oats. If the mixture is too dry, add a splash of warm water or some more peanut butter.
  2. Once the mixture is ready, add the cacao nibs and pulse until cacao nibs are spread throughout.
  3. Roll mixture into balls of your desired size.
  4. Place balls into an airproof container and refrigerate for up to 7 days.

    Hey Jess, just wondering about your take on dates. How many should we be consuming a day for optimum balance and health? Xx

    • Hi Ella! Dates are a great way to sweeten things naturally, however we wouldn’t recommend more than 1-2 a day. They’re quite high in sugar, so you should consider them a healthy treat. Enjoy!

    Hi I made theses to the exact recipe and they were so salty that it was almost inedible?

    • Hi Sonya, sorry to hear that! Did you use natural peanut butter? And perhaps reduce the amount to 1/4 tsp next time you make them.

      • Sonya

        Yep just 100% peanut butter no added salt, the balls were yummy just too salty and I did second guess putting a teaspoon in when I was making them, thinking it sounded like a lot, will try 1/4 next time 🙂

  • Liezl

    Hi Jess, how many peanut butter bliss balls are recommended per snack?

    • Hi Liezl! You can enjoy 1-2 of these bliss balls as a snack or treat. Thanks!

  • Nicolle DiSano

    These look amazing! Do you think these would work using quinoa flakes instead of oats?

    • Hi Nicole! We haven’t tried them using quinoa flakes, but they should work! Let us know how you go x

    Is the coconut unsweetened?

    • Hi! Do you mean the shredded coconut? It should be just dried coconut, nothing else!

    I just tried this this morning and they are delightful! Thank you! I am wondering if you have the nutrition facts per serving available?
