15 Medjool dates, pitted

1½ cups (225 g) whole almonds

2 tbsp chia seeds

1 tbsp cocoa powder

2 tbsp coconut oil

1 tsp orange zest

Coating + Decorating

100 g dark chocolate

Crushed hazelnuts

Crushed pistachio nuts

Crushed almonds

Desiccated coconut

Cocoa powder

Dried rose petals

Freeze-dried berries

Goji berries

Cacao nibs


Place the almonds into a food processor and blitz until they are finely ground. Add the chia seeds, dates, coconut oil, cocoa powder, and orange zest and blitz until the mixture is completely combined and holds together when you roll it. Roll into tablespoon-sized balls using your hands, then place in the fridge to cool for 30 mins to 1 hour. If you want to coat and decorate them, melt 100 g of dark chocolate and roll each bliss ball in the chocolate, then place on a flat baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle on the toppings you desire, or leave them plain. Pop into the fridge for 1 more hour to set completely.
