Peanut butter bliss balls are an energizing, protein packed, superfood dessert!  Completely vegan and gluten-free!



  • 1/2 cup Peanut Butter
  • 1/2 cup Steel Cut Oats
  • 1/2 cup Almond Flour
  • 1/2 cup Shredded Coconut (1/4 cup for dough & 1/4 cup for rolling/topping)
  • 1/4 cup Raw Cacao Powder
  • 2 tbsp Flaxseeds
  • 2 tbsp Chia Seeds
  • 1 tbsp Maca Powder
  • 3/4 cup Dates, pitted (about 8 dates)
  • 1 tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 3 tbsp Maple Syrup


  1. Pit dates and steep in a bowl of warm water for 10 minutes.
  2. While dates steep, add the oats, flour, half the coconut, cacao, flaxseeds, chia seeds, and maca powder to a food processor. Pulse until well combined and broken down.
  3. Add the peanut butter, steeped dates, coconut oil, and syrup to the food processor with the rest of the ingredients. Process until well combined and you reach a doughy consistency. If your dough is too dry, add 1-2 tbsp of water as needed.
  4. Split the dough evenly into 1-2 tbsp sized pieces, then roll into balls. Roll the balls through shredded coconut or your topping of choice.
  5. Enjoy!
