    • 1 cup (90g) rolled oats
    • 2 tbsp cacao powder or cocoa powder
    • 12 pitted fresh dates
    • 1 cup (80g) desiccated coconut
    • 2 tbsp Coles Finest Maple Syrup
    • 2 tbsp desiccated coconut (extra for coating)


    Step 1: Blend the Ingredients

    In a food processor, combine the rolled oats, cacao powder or cocoa powder, dates, desiccated coconut, and maple syrup. Process the mixture until it is almost smooth and well combined.

    Step 2: Form and Coat the Balls

    Place the extra 2 tablespoons of desiccated coconut on a plate. Take 2-tablespoon portions of the mixture and roll them into balls. Roll each ball in the desiccated coconut to coat them evenly.

    Step 3: Chill and Store

    Place the coated balls on a lined tray and refrigerate them for 1 hour or until they are set. Once set, store the bliss balls in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
