Raw, Vegan Afternoon Bliss Balls

Raw, Vegan Afternoon Bliss Balls

These little gems are packed with good fats, fibre (2.5g in a 13g ball) and flavour. Cocoa makes them chocolatey, but they are not too sweet. They are quite filling due to the fat. The sunflower seed butter is high in unsaturated fats, magnesium, zinc, iron and vitamin E. A big plus is that due to the low carb content it doesn’t spike your insulin levels. I used to melt dark chocolate to use as a glaze for all kinds of goodies. What I do now is simply combine melted coconut oil and raw cocoa powder, a splash of maple syrup and a pinch of salt and it works just as well. That way you can better control the sweetness.

Makes 16 balls



  • 2 oz. coconut flour
  • 2 Tbsp. sunflower seed butter
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • 2 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup raw whole almonds
  • 1 Tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 1 pinch of sea salt
  • coconut shreds for topping


  • 2 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 Tbsp. raw cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp. maple syrup
  • 1 pinch of sea salt


Put ball ingredients into a food processor and blend until combined. Add a splash of water if it doesn’t come together. Roll pieces of dough in your hands until balls form (approx. 16 pieces). Set aside.

For the glaze, melt coconut oil, add the rest of the ingredients and stir until dissolved and smooth. Dip balls in glaze then roll in coconut shreds or chopped nuts.
