These Chocolate Bliss Balls are a quick, easy to make snack or on-the-go breakfast! Only 10 ingredients (pantry friendly), plant based, gluten free friendly, and perfect for meal prep. 


Units Scale
  • 1 cup whole rolled oats
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut (we used unsweetened)
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons almond butter (or another nut butter of choice)
  • 6 tablespoons maple syrup (or honey)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips, melted


  1. Add oats to a food processor and pulse a few times. Add in the almond flour, shredded coconut, cocoa powder, cinnamon, and salt and pulse a few times to combine.  
  2. Add in almond butter, maple syrup and vanilla extract and pulse until the mixture comes together.
  3. Add in the melted chocolate and pulse again until evenly incorporated.
  4. Using a 1 or 2 tbsp cookie scoop, portion into balls. Roll (using your hands). Optional: You can coat the balls in a topping, like shredded coconut, cocoa powder, matcha powder, etc.
  5. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to set. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.


Mixture too dry? This can sometimes happen depending on how runny your nut butter is. If it's a little too dry to roll into a ball, try adding in an additional 1 tbsp each of nut butter and maple syrup. Repeat until it reaches the right consistency.

Wet ingredients: Before adding the wet ingredients into the food processor, it can help to whisk together the almond butter, maple syrup, and vanilla before adding it in. This is especially helpful if your almond butter is on the thick side – otherwise you might end up with big chunks of almond butter. 

Melting the chocolate: Place chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 20-25 second intervals, stirring well between each interval, until fully melted. It usually takes about 1 minute total of heating. 

Storage: Store for up to 2 weeks in an airtight container in the fridge or up to 5 months in the freezer. Defrost before enjoying.
