If you are looking for a sweet treat, I have just the recipe for you. These Raspberry Bliss Balls are just what you need. These sweet snacks are refined-sugar, dairy-free, and gluten-free!
What Makes These Bites So Good?
If you have never made energy bites before, you might not understand just how good they can be. The added freeze-dried raspberries really make these bites.
They are so incredibly easy to make. If you are short on time but still want to do meal prep or just create a sweet treat, these are the ones for you! They are so easy to make.
These little bites hold well for 7-10 days! I like to make these on Saturday and I can snack on them all week.
- Regular oats- You can use quick-cooking if you like, but I like to use regular oats better.
- Dates- This with the maple syrup will provide the sweetener for these little bites.
- Unsweetened coconut- You can use sweetened if you like, but I really prefer unsweetened.
- Almonds- You can use whole or sliced almonds. Another nut could be used too if you like, but almonds are my favorite with the raspberries.
- Freeze-dried raspberries- If you have not used freeze-dried berries before, you need to change that! They add the best flavor!
- Maple Syrup- Make sure this is pure maple syrup.
How To Make
These are so easy to make. Throw everything into your food processor. If you don’t have a food processor, you can also use a blender.
Just make sure it is a good one with plenty of power. It takes a bit to break up the almonds.
Once they are well blended, form them into balls. I use my small OXO cookie scoop, but you can make these any size you like.
These need to be stored in the fridge. I like to form them and let them chill on a plate. Then when they are set, put them in an airtight container and store them in the fridge.
That is it! They are done.
- This might just be the easiest recipe you will ever make. You can make these in minutes!
- You can easily swap out the freeze-dried fruits if you want. Strawberries are also really good. There are other freeze-dried fruits, but I can only vouch for the strawberries and raspberries.
- I like to keep these chilled, they seem to dry out a little at room temp.
- Almonds are my first choice here, but you can also use swap out other nuts if you like.
