Raspberry Coconut Bliss Balls

In a world where snack time often means navigating through shelves of heavily processed foods with ingredients hard to pronounce, finding a treat that’s both satisfying and good for you can feel like a quest for the holy grail. Enter the Raspberry Coconut Bliss Balls: a perfect combination of natural sweetness, satisfying texture, and pure, wholesome ingredients. These no-bake, gluten-free, vegan, and sugar-free treats are a mouthful of healthy nutritious goodness. Let’s dive into what makes these bliss balls a must-try for anyone looking to indulge, including your kids!

With a simple blend of oats, almond flour, raspberries, coconut, tahini, and honey, this recipe is your go-to for a quick, nutritious snack. Let’s dive into the details of making these bliss balls and explore why they’re an excellent choice for toddlers.

Raspberries, with their vibrant color and burst of natural sweetness, are not just about their delightful taste. They are a powerhouse of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, making them a perfect ingredient for a health-conscious snack. Their natural sweetness allows us to create a treat that requires no added refined sugars, relying on the fruit’s natural sweetness. And tell me, do you even know a kid, toddler or baby that doesn’t like berries? Nope, me either!

Coconut, on the other hand, brings its unique texture and a hint of tropical paradise to our bliss balls. Its richness in fiber and healthy fats contributes to the satisfyingly chewy and nutritious for each ball. Moreover, coconut’s natural sweetness complements the tartness of the raspberries, creating a harmonious blend of flavors.

I always give people the option to make this recipe just a bit sweeter with some healthy nutrient packed honey. I have found my toddler seems to prefer it now with a bit of honey, and I have updated the recipe to reflect that.

Raspberry Coconut Bliss Balls are an excellent snack for toddlers for several reasons:

  • Nutrient-Rich: Packed with healthy fats from the tahini and almond flour, fiber from the oats, and vitamins from the raspberries, these bliss balls are a nutritious option that supports a growing toddler’s needs.
  • No Refined Sugars: Using honey as the sweetener, these treats avoid the health pitfalls associated with refined sugars, making them a healthier choice for your little ones.
  • Soft Texture: The soft, chewable texture of these bliss balls makes them suitable for toddlers, including those who might be picky eaters.

To ensure your Raspberry Coconut Bliss Balls stay fresh and delicious, follow these simple storage tips:

  • Refrigerate: Store the bliss balls in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They will keep well for up to two weeks.
  • Freeze for Longevity: For longer storage, you can freeze the bliss balls. Place them in a single layer on a baking sheet to freeze them initially. Once frozen, transfer them to a freezer-safe bag or container. They can be frozen for up to 3 months. Thaw at room temperature or in the refrigerator before serving.

This recipe only requires a blender or food processor, so baking is required! Woot! This is perfect for the hotter summer days when you don’t want to turn on the oven. Don’t skip these in winter though as they Vit C in the raspberries are great for the immune system too.

I like to use frozen raspberries as initially they are not as watery, and the balls hold together perfectly. As they berries combine with the oats, the juices soak up and creates the best texture.

Add all your ingredients to your blender/processor until well combined, roll into balls then into shredded coconut.


Whether you’re looking for a healthy snack to keep your energy levels up, a guilt-free dessert to satisfy your sweet cravings, or a beautiful, handmade gift for a loved one, these Raspberry Coconut Bliss Balls are versatile and sure to impress. They’re proof that indulging in your dessert dreams can be both delicious and nutritious.

So, the next time you’re in the mood for something sweet, skip the processed candy bars and whip up a batch of these bliss balls. It’s a simple, satisfying way to treat yourself—no baking required. In fact, making bliss balls, energy balls or protein balls are some of my favorite and the easiest way to get nutrition into your diet, and if you want other recipes for balls, please try these!

Discover easy-to-make, nutritious Raspberry Coconut Bliss Balls - perfect for toddlers & adults. No refined sugars, no baking, just wholesome goodness!


  • 1 cup oats (ensure gluten-free if necessary)
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 1-2 tbsp honey (substitute with maple syrup, coconut syrup or agave for a vegan option)
  • Extra finely shredded coconut for rolling



In a food processor, blend the oats and almond flour, frozen raspberries, tahini, coconut and honey and blend until it forms a sticky dough. If the mixture is too wet, add a bit more almond flour or oats to adjust the consistency.


Take small portions of the mixture and roll them into balls. If the dough sticks to your hands, wetting them slightly can make the process easier.


Roll each ball in shredded coconut until well coated. This not only adds a delightful texture but also enhances the flavor.


Place the bliss balls on a tray lined with parchment paper and refrigerate for at least an hour, allowing them to firm up.


Store in fridge for up to two weeks or in the freezer for up to 3 months
