Okay to be honest I have absolutely no idea what qualifies something as a “bliss ball.”  But according to Google bliss means perfect happiness and that is exactly what these balls bring so I think they qualify!  They are made with only FOUR ingredients, they are NO bake, plus they are gluten free, vegan, and refine sugar free!

The cashew butter provides protein, the oats are a complex carb, the coconut flakes are a great source of healthy fats, and the maple syrup brings a little sweetness into this treat.  They are basically a balanced meal all by themselves!  Feel free to add other toppings as desired as well (I love mini chocolate chips, dried gogi berries, or sprinkles).

Let’s Make Some Coconut Cashew Bliss Balls!

Literally the easiest recipe ever I am not even sure I can give you instructions.  All you need to do is start by measuring out your cashew butter (I used Abbys Better coconut cashew butter for extra coconut flavor) and your maple syrup and mixing them together.  I will say make sure your cashew butter is drippy – but I haven’t seen any super processed cashew butters personally so that won’t really be a problem.  Unless you swap for peanut butter, then just make sure it is drippy.  You can really use any nut butter for this!  And buy good quality maple syrup too.

Once you’ve got those combined just pour in your oats and your coconut flakes (I like to buy unsweetened coconut flakes).  Add your oats a little at a time and if you think they start to get too dry just stop short of the amount suggested on the recipe.

I rolled mine in extra coconut flakes but you could also omit that step or roll in something fun like cocoa powder!  The possibilities are endless 😛 I didn’t measure mine out as I rolled them into balls I just tried to keep them all the same size.  But you can use a tablespoon or a cookie scoop if you want them exactly perfect! This made 14 for me.

And then keep them refrigerated for the best texture!
