Mangoes, when fully ripe, are great fruit to naturally sweeten foods. These bliss balls have a nice touch of sweetness and are packed with a great serving of oats. Roll them into desiccated coconut for an extra special treat your little ones are sure to love!

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

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

Ingredients for mango bliss balls. See recipe card for detailed ingredients.
  • Rolled Oats: I love using rolled oats as they are packed with nutrition! Gluten-free rolled oats make these 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.
  • Mango: The main source of sweetness for these bliss balls. Use a mango that is very ripe for maximum sweetness.

PROCESS

  1. Cut the mango into chunks and blend it into a puree.
  2. Add in the oats, almond flour, and desiccated coconut and blend them together with the puree. There may be some pieces of oats that did not fully break down, but this adds great texture!
  3. Scoop out tablespoon sized portions and roll them into balls.
  4. Roll into desiccated coconut or serve as is!
Step by step process to create mango bliss balls. See recipe card for detailed instructions.

STORAGE INSTRUCTIONS

Store the 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 to serve.

SUBSTITUTIONS

  • Almond flour: You may omit the almond flour altogether 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 a little more oats.
  • Mango: The mango may be replaced with equal parts of any fruit puree.

RECIPE NOTES

  • 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 oats, coconut and almond flour, there may be some chunks of oats that did not fully blend, but that is ok! I personally like that better for more texture in the bliss balls. 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. You do not need to coat the bliss balls in coconut, they are fine to serve as is!
  • Desiccated coconut is unsweetened and different from regular shredded coconut. I used the brand let’s do organic desiccated coconut in this recipe.
