Oat Bliss Balls: Two Simple Recipes


I love having little snack balls on hand. I usually bring them to work along with some fresh fruit for when that afternoon slump hits (it's always somewhere between 14-15 pm for me).

The base ingredients in these "bliss balls" are rolled oats and dates. Simple, right? The ball in the top picture is flavoured with cinnamon and rosehip, and the green-ish one is flavoured with matcha green tea and liquorice. A nice change from my usual chocolate balls which I make almost every week or so (recipe here and here).


And how nice is it that it's the weekend soon? After a bit too much sickness lately I certainly don't feel as energetic as I'd like to, so I'm hoping for quite a restful weekend at home. Maybe some baking would be nice. I'm definitely more of a cook than baker, which is why most of my baking recipes just involves some mixing in the food processor. But now I feel like some actual baked cookies would be nice, maybe definitely with some chocolate involved. What's your favourite cookie recipes (prefereably healthy-ish)? Please share!

I wish you a nice weekend ♥


Oat Bliss Balls with Cinnamon & Rosehip 


1 cup (2 dl) rolled oats
1/2 cup (1 dl) almonds or sweet apricot kernels
10 big fresh and juicy dates
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp rosehip powder
1/2 tsp cardamom
1 tsp coconut oil

Mix all ingredients in a food processor until a sticky dough forms. Roll into balls. Keep in the fridge or freezer. Enjoy!


Oat Bliss Balls with Matcha & Liquorice


1 cup (2 dl) rolled oats
1/2 cup (1 dl) cashews
10 big fresh and juicy dates
2 tsp matcha green tea powder
1-2 tsp raw liquorice powder
1 tsp coconut oil
(1 tsp maca powder, optional)
Small pinch of salt

Mix all ingredients in a food processor until a sticky dough forms. Roll into balls. Keep in the fridge or freezer. Enjoy!

P.S. Also try crumbling 1-2 balls on your breakfast bowl, it's soooo good!

  1. I'm intrigued by the addition of licorice powder (!?! who knew?!?) in the second recipe. I love little energy balls like this so I am bookmarking this baby!
