Lately I have been noticing how sensitive I am to sugar, so I have been baking less and less these days. However, I do have a sweet tooth so I like to find healthier options that still satisfy my cravings. These Brownie Batter Bliss Balls with Cacao and Dates (vegan) are the perfect healthy way to satisfy a sweet craving.
These bliss balls have no added sugar and are only sweetened with dates. They are also ridiculously easy to make.
Let's get into the recipe.

What ingredients do I need to make cacao brownie bliss balls?
- almond butter
- coconut oil
- oat flour
- Almond butter - can be subbed with another thick nut butter like cashew, I don't recommend using tahini as it is too liquidy. Sunbutter is a good option if you are allergic to nuts.
Storage instructions for no sugar added bliss balls
The extra bliss balls can be stored in your fridge in a sealed container for up to ~5 days. They could also probably be frozen and thawed as needed but I haven't tried this.
No, these are essential to the recipe.
Dates have fiber and nutrients like potassium.
Make sure to soften your dates if they are very hard, otherwise the recipe will not blend.
