Cookie Dough Bliss Balls


My Husband’s mates and consequently my mates, tackled the long trek to our place and endured the sleepless nights that babies bring just to hang out for a few days.

Just to sit up late and ramble and to explore this place we call home.

Just to have a few drinks and catch up.

Just to reminisce about way back when.

I didn’t sleep much but I laughed a lot.

My Husband did too. I would look at him and I would see the man who stole my heart all those years ago.

It was a great few days.

Now I am not only missing sleep, but I am also missing old mates, familiar stories and jokes that no-one understands.

One day we will get back there. Not today. Not tomorrow. But one day.

Cookie Dough Bliss Balls

  • 4 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons honey*
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 1/4 cups almond meal
  • 40 grams dark chocolate, finely chopped
  1. Place the peanut butter, honey, vanilla and salt into a bowl and mix to combine. Add the almond meal and mix to combine, work the mixture with your hands until it forms a dough. Add the chocolate and mix to combine.

  2. Use your hands to press and shape the mixture into balls. Place the balls into the fridge to set.

  3. Serve. Eat. Enjoy.

*you can use rice malt syrup if you prefer.

notes – depending on the thickness of your peanut butter and honey you may need to add extra almond meal. However, we have made these lots of times and the quantities above have always worked perfectly for us.

    So good! I used almond meal as that’s all I had on hand and cacao nibs.
    Thanks for sharing xx

    Thanks Bianca – just made a night time batch and they are delicious even after only 10 minutes in the fridge. Can’t wait to try them in the morning! Also used almond meal as that was what I had in the pantry. Looking forward to making more of your recipes 🙂

    • Perfect!!! Thank YOU so much! I am glad you enjoyed them. I would love to hear how you go with anything else that you try. Be sure to let me know. x

    Hi I tried to make cashew meal to make these but my cashews started turning to a butter before they broke down finely, do you make or buy your cashew meal? Would love some advice on how to make or where to buy 🙂 Thanks!

    • I buy mine as it does easily turn to butter. I am in Australia and it is readily available in the nut section at the supermarket. I hope this helps.

    The chocolate melted when I added it because my mixture was warm, next time I won’t heat the mixture as I don’t think it needs it anyway. Still yummy.

    How many balls does this recipe make?

    • Given the amount of times I have made this I really should know! Maybe 10? I don’t think it would be any more than that.

  • Such a great recipe, i used half peanut butter half cashew butter and it worked really well.
    good job Bianca..

    I have already eaten 3 in the space of 10 minutes! Only thing is mine are really soft. I actually put them in the freezer (which tastes amazing) to harden them up. I think maybe I should have used a bit more Almond meal?
