Date and Almond Quinoa Bliss Balls

Whenever we threaten a healthy alternative to chocolate here at Stay at Home Mum, Bliss Balls always get a mention.

But it wasn’t until we tried these that we realised they are actually a yummy alternative to a sugar-packed snack.


  1. Pulse the pitted Medjool dates and raw almonds in a food processor until finely chopped.

  2. Add the quinoa mixture and the crunchy peanut butter and pulse until the ingredients are combined.

  3. Gently stir in the raisins (or sultanas).

  4. Roll the mixture into 12 balls and chill in fridge for up to an hour.

  5. Dust the balls with the cocoa powder.

Recipe Hints and Tips:

  • You can freeze the Date and Almond Quinoa Bliss Balls.  Just pop them into a zip lock bag for up to two months.
