These bliss balls are SO tasty, and you don’t even need a food processor to make them! 


  • 1/3 cup coconut butter, melted (can sub coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup+2 tbsp brown rice syrup (can sub maple syrup or honey)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp almond extract (can sub vanilla extract)
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp poppy seeds
  • pinch of salt
  • *1-2 tsp of almond milk (if needed to help bind) 


  1. Mix the coconut butter, brown rice syrup, lemon juice and almond extract together in a bowl. 
  2. Next, add in the dry ingredients and mix until well combined. The dough should stick together when you roll it in your hands. If the dough is crumbly, add a bit more melted coconut butter and brown rice syrup. 
  3. Use a small cookie scoop or a spoon to scoop out the dough and roll into balls using your hands. 
  4. Place in the fridge for at least 1 hour to firm up before eating. 


If you’re having trouble moulding your dough into balls add 1-2 tsp of almond milk or water to your dough. 

Add a pinch of Tumeric (no more than 1/4 tsp!)  to make your bliss balls more vibrant yellow!
