My toddler’s eyes always light up when he sees these blueberry bliss balls on his plate. The vibrant blue color and coconut coating definitely catch his attention and I love that they are so nutritious! They are soft, store well, and are the perfect sweet treat!

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

Here is what you’ll need to make these berry bliss balls:

Ingredients to make blueberry bliss balls. See recipe card for detailed ingredient quantities.
  • Rolled Oats: I love using rolled oats as they are packed with nutrition! Gluten-free rolled oats make these berry bliss balls gluten-free.
  • Almond Flour: Used to add a slight nutty flavor to these balls. This may be replaced with more oats for a nut-free option. I always use the Kirkland brand almond flour from Costco.
  • Desiccated Coconut: Used to add a little more texture and taste to the bliss balls. This may also be replaced with more oats or almond flour. I use the let’s do organic brand desiccated coconut.
  • Frozen Blueberries: Frozen blueberries help give the bliss balls that bright blue color, but fresh blueberries will work as well.
  • Raisins: Main source of sweetness for these bliss balls. Be sure to pre-soak the raisins so that they are able to easily blend with the other ingredients.

PROCESS

  1. Soak raisins in warm water for a few minutes to soften and drain.
  2. Blitz soaked raisins into a paste. 
  3. Add in oats, almond flour, blueberries, and desiccated coconut and blend to combine.
  4. Form into balls and roll into desiccated coconut to coat.

STORAGE INSTRUCTIONS

Store the blueberry bliss balls in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two days. You may also store them in a freezer-safe Ziploc bag and freeze them for up to one month. Thaw the bliss balls in the refrigerator or on the counter before serving.

SUBSTITUTIONS

  • Almond flour: You may omit the almond flour and substitute it with a little more oats for a nut-free version.
  • Desiccated coconut: You may omit the desiccated coconut and substitute it with oats or almound flour.
  • Raisins: You may substitute the raisins with dates or maple syrup. If you are using maple syrup, your mixture may be a little sticky, so you may have to add in more almond flour, coconut, or oats to balance out the stickiness.
  • Blueberries: The blueberries may be replaced with any frozen berry.

RECIPE NOTES

  • These bliss balls also work with fresh blueberries, but frozen blueberries help with the texture and also help give the balls their vibrant, bright color.
  • You do not need to coat the bliss balls in coconut, they are fine to serve as is!
  • These bliss balls are suitable for babies from 6 months of age (granted all signs of readiness are met), but they should be quartered to remove the roundness. You could alternatively make larger-sized balls and serve as is.
  • When blending the raisins into a paste, add a very small amount of water if it is hard to blend. I love using this nutribullet blender to blend these ingredients!
  • If your mixture is too wet to form into balls, add in a little more oats, coconut, or almond flour.
  • Desiccated coconut is unsweetened and different from regular shredded coconut. I used the brand let’s do organic desiccated coconut in this recipe.

  1. Tried to make these and it didn’t work out at all so clearly I did something wrong. There was no moisture so the Nutribullet did not blend the ingredients into a batter. Am I supposed to thaw the frozen blueberries first?

    1. Hi Angela! I’m so sorry to hear that these didn’t work out. Did you soak the raisins first and then blend them before adding in the other ingredients? When I make them, I usually have to stop and shake the nutribullet everyone few seconds to ensure that all of the ingredients mix together. It will seem dry at first but usually comes together into a thick mixture as the blueberries also break down and release some moisture. You can also add in a few teaspoons of water if you find that the mixture is too dry. I hope that helps!
