If you have 15 minutes, you can make these Chocolate Beet Bliss Balls!  No baking required! You blitz the ingredients together in a food processor with the option to roll them in coconut or more cocoa and they're ready to eat. I like to keep them in the freezer and sneak one for afternoon cravings (I eat it right out of the freezer).


  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup gluten free rolled oats (or regular if gluten isn't an issue)
  • 1 packed cup pitted dates (Medjool or Deglet Noor)
  • ½   heaping cup chopped raw purple/red beet
  • ¼  cup unsweetened cocoa or cacao powder
  • tbsp ground flaxseed (or flax meal)
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ¼  tbsp cinnamon
  • Pinch salt
  • 1-2 tbsp maple syrup (optional)

Optional Coating

  • 1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds extra cocoa/cacao powder


  • Add all ingredients in the order listed to a food processor. Pulse a few times to combine and then process continuously until the mix starts clumping together and rolling around in a ball. 
  • Remove the mix from the processor. Scoop out about 2 tablespoons for each bliss ball and roll it between your hands. Roll in your chosen coating. Keep these in the fridge for a few days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. 


If you've chosen to omit the maple syrup and the mix is too dry and not sticking together, add a tablespoon of plant-based milk while the mix is processing.
