What are bliss balls?
You may have heard bliss balls referred to as energy balls, power balls, protein balls, or bliss bites.
They're typically made with whole, raw ingredients – including dates, nuts, protein powder, coconut, seeds, and more.
Bliss balls are a healthy treat because they contain plenty of healthy fats, fiber, and protein. Plus no added refined sugar!

Here's how to make bliss balls with dates. My favorite way to make these no bake protein balls!
- Medjool dates: This variety of date fruits are larger, softer, and have a caramel-like flavor.
- Raw nuts: I like using walnuts or pecans, but use your favorite!
- Protein powder: To take your bliss balls to the next level, toss in some plant-based protein powder or adaptogen blend. (Use code THEURBENLIFE for 20% off!)
- Desiccated coconut: I love rolling my raw energy balls in shredded coconut! You can choose to leave your bites bare or roll in cocoa powder, hemp seeds, chia seeds, or even crushed nuts.
- Sea salt: Just a pinch!
