Coconut Caramel Bliss Balls


We LOVE anything with a caramel or coconut flavour – and the two combined – is simply divine! These Coconut Caramel Bliss balls are the perfect snack, with the addition of sunflower seeds which are full of Vitamin E and magnesium.  Try them for a delicious healthy snack or treat, or they are a great addition for your kids’ school lunchboxes, as they contain no nuts!

Coconut Caramel Bliss Balls


1 cup rolled oats

2 cups dessicated coconut (plus a little more for rolling)

6 medjool dates (pitted)

1/4 cup sunflower seeds

2 tbsp golden syrup (or your preferred sweetner)

1 – 2 tbsp water (optional, only add at the end if your mixture is a little dry or you have used standard dates in place of medjool dates)


  1. Put all ingredients into blender and blitz on medium-high for 30 seconds. Scrape down sides and blitz for a further 15 seconds.
  2. Roll into small balls and then roll into dessicated coconut (if desired).
  3. Store in an airtight container in the fridge (if they last that long!) and enjoy!

  1. Thank you for this delicious recipe! School holidays, three children constantly claiming starvation- 5 minutes and I had this snack in front of them. Three enthusiastic ‘thumbs up’ (not including mine!). I did have to use a bit extra golden syrup as my mixture was very dry (I wasn’t using fresh dates). I found it very easy to adjust as needed though.
