Quick and Easy Picnic Bar Bliss Balls

Quick and Easy Picnic Bar Bliss Balls

 The day I made these I excitedly waited for my husband to get home.

I let him do his thing. I let him drink a beer. I let him eat his dinner.

Then, I couldn’t wait any longer. I asked him to try what I had whipped up that day.

He could sense that this was not a standard taste testing.

He looked at me questioningly.

I said “I want it to taste like something”.

He popped it into his mouth. I waited and waited and waited.

“It’s a Picnic”. He stated.

YAY! My Picnic tastes like a Picnic!

My day was made.


Quick and Easy Picnic Bar Bliss Balls

  • 1/4 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1/4 cup raw cashews
  • 10 medjool dates, seeds removed
  • 1/2 teaspoon concentrated natural vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons cacao or cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon honey*
  • 3 tablespoons crushed peanuts
  1. Place the ingredients into your processor and blend until the mixture is combined but still has lots of texture. Use your hands to press and shape the mixture into balls and place the balls into the fridge to set.
  2. Eat. Enjoy.

*you can use rice malt syrup if you prefer

A few of you have been asking about preservative free Desiccated Coconut. It can be tricky to come by! However, my fabulous sponsors, The Source Bulk Foods, stock it both in their amazing stores and online.

    Hello! Your recipes look amazing. When you say cocoa – do you mean cocoa powder or another form? Thanks! 🙂

    Hi I’m making this today, can’t wait! I’m just wondering is there an easy way to print your recipes? I can’t seem to do it!

    • No sorry my site doesn’t have any of those functions and I am a bit hopeless with IT!! I do have books if that is any help. I hope you enjoy the recipe.

    Hi Bianca. I can’t believe I haven’t stumbled across you before. I am in love with your recipes. I made these with my girls today. I must admit I only had half the quantity of some of the ingredients so made a half batch. I also couldn’t quite figure out how to put it all together so I just rolled it all into balls. My husband has been a grouch since we quit sugar so was super excited to come home from work tonight and find these in our freezer. He said they definitely tasted like a snickers though rather than a picnic. I’m not quite sure myself but love them whatever they are called. Natalie

    • Thank YOU and welcome Natalie. I am glad you found my little space and that you have stumbled across a recipe that your family enjoys, I hope you find many more, be sure to let me know. Bianca. x

    Hi Bianca
    Just wondering if you know approximately how much 10 dates would weigh…or if you’d be able to check next time you are using them to whip up one of your fabulous sweet creations ????. I’ve seen some at the supermarket and they can vary quite a bit in size. Thank you!

    • Hi Sue, it is very close to being a cup. I hope this helps.
