Recipe: Cashew and Cranberry Bliss Balls

I went through a stage quite some time back where I was experimenting with lots of different Bliss Ball varieties with traditional date & cacao balls, fig & goji bliss balls and apricot & almond balls all getting a run in my kitchen. I hadn’t made any in such a long time so when I was trying to think of a tasty snack to take to work I decided it was time to try a new flavour combination. I had a rather large supply of dried cranberries on hand so Cashew and Cranberry Bliss Balls seemed the appropriate way to go!

Ingredients List

  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup dried dates
  • 2tbs raw cacao powder
  • 1tbs coconut flakes (plus more for rolling)
  • 2tbs coconut oil

Steps

  1. Place the cranberries and dates in a bowl and cover in boiling water for a 2-3 minutes to soften then drain
  2. Put the cashews in a food processor and blitz until in small pieces
  3. Add the cranberries, dates, cacao powder and coconut flakes and blitz to form a paste
  4. Add the coconut oil slowly while blitzing the mixture until it comes together to form a sticky dough
  5. Roll the dough into small balls and roll them in coconut to coat the outside then place on a tray
  6. Freeze for 30 minutes then enjoy!

Cashew and Cranberry Bliss Balls

These are best stored in the fridge and will last about a week (well, if you don’t eat them all beforehand!). They’re a delicious sweet treat that you don’t have to feel guilty about snacking on so are perfect for that 3pm slump at work!

      It’s funny how we just stop making things isn’t it?! These were definitely a good way to get back on board though!
