Guilt-Free Sweet Treats

By  |  0 Comments

Who said treats need to be loaded with sugar and bad for you?! Not the kind I’m about to give you the recipes for!

These sweet treats are packed full of goodness and are a great source of protein and healthy fats.

They also make a great snack for those on the run and are fantastic treats for kids!

Yummy Bliss Balls


  • ½ cup of almonds
  • ½ cup cashews
  • 25 Medjool dates
  • 2 tbsp raw cacao (bit more if you want them to be even MORE chocolatey!)
  • 2 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 2 tbsp desiccated coconut
  • 2 tbsp goji berries (optional)
  • 1 tbp maca powder (optional)

** Leave some coconut and cacao for sprinkling **

This recipe should make approx. 25 Bliss Balls.


  • Grind the nuts and seeds in a food processor until they are like a fine powder consistency and then empty into a bowl.
  • Blend the dates in a food processor until they form a paste.
  • Add in the ground nuts/seeds to the paste and blend together in the food processor.
  • Then add in the goji berries, coconut, cacao and maca and blend together.
  • Check the consistency to see if will roll into a ball without crumbling – add more dates if needed as they are what bind the balls together.
  • Roll into balls with your hands and then roll them in some cacao and coconut to finish off (sprinkled on a plate).

These are my absolute fave so hope you enjoy them as much as me!

Cacao Coconut Nut Bars


  • 15 Medjool dates pitted
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • 2 tbsp cacao
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp water


  • Blend the almonds, walnuts and coconut in a food processor until they are like a fine powder.
  • Then add the dates, coconut oil, cacao and water and pulse until a dough forms.
  • Line an 8×8 pan with parchment paper leaving enough room for some to come out  of the sides. This makes it easier to remove the bars and cut with a pizza cutter.
  • Press down the mixture so that it is packed well and place in the fridge to set. Leave it for one to two hours. Then slice and serve!

It keeps well so it should last in the fridge for a couple of weeks.

Happy baking and enjoy these yummy treats!
