The nuttiness of our almond meal and quinoa really helps to balance out the natural sweetness from our maple syrup, vanilla and cacao.

Although these bliss bites are super fudgey, they also happen to have a crazy cool, subtle crunch factor to them thanks to our chia-licious chia seeds.

Without question these dark and delicious, seriously nutritious, oh so chocolatey tahini bliss bites are a texture lovers dream!

Now, these chocolate tahini bliss bites are all kinds of incredible just as they are but, if you want to jazz them up a little and add another, crazy-cool, textural element to you superfood, super-snack then you can totally roll them in a little cacao,

or even some coconut.

Or you could bust open a packet of your favourite sprinkles and really get the party started . . .

I don’t know about you but in our house we bust out the sprinkles any and every chance we get!

I should mention that when I make my bliss bites I tend to make them way smaller than the ones you see in stores or cafes. I prefer to make them on the smaller side because I like being able to just pop one in my mouth on the down low so I don’t have to share I can go about my business. I would say you would probably need 3 of my bliss bites to make up the size of one of those store bought/cafe size bites. Feel free make them whatever size that tickles your fancy, just wanted to put that out there 🙂

Chocolate Tahini Bliss Bites {Date Free}
Makes approx 22 – All natural, seriously healthy, quick and easy, dark and delicious, decadent, rich, fudgey, chewy, crispy, crunchy, bet size – chocolate tahini bliss bites.

Ingredients –

1/4 cup of unhulled tahini – I use Mayver’s ♥
1/8 cup of maple syrup
1/4 cup of finely shredded Desiccated Coconut – I use Loving Earth ♥
1/4 cup of almond meal
1/4 cup of quinoa flakes
1/8 cup cacao – I use Power Superfoods Cacao ♥
1 Tbsp chia seeds

Optional for serving – 

Cacao
Finely shredded coconut
Sprinkles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Method –

1 – Place all ingredients into a medium size bowl and stir to combine.

2 – If the mixture is a little dry add a splash water (a teaspoon at a time) until it sticks together to form a sticky “dough”

3 – Scoop a small section of dough and shape roll in the palm of your hand to shape into bite size balls, repeat until all the mixture has been used. FYI – I use approx 1 heaping teaspoon per bite which makes them the perfect size for popping into your mouth on the down low so you don’t have to share 😉

4 – If you are going to coat your bliss bites in cacao, coconut or sprinkles simple place your cacao, coconut and/or sprinkles into a small bowl or zip lock bag and gentle press/shake until nicely coated. Store in the fridge until ready to serve.

Enjoy xo

    Jut made these today!! I didn’t have any quinoa flakes left, so I used a combo of oats and hemp seeds. They are just perfect!! I have been finding while pregnant anything too sweet tasting leaves a bad after taste, but these little bits have such a nice soft, not overpowering sweetness, that they are the perfect little treat 🙂 Plus love that I didn’t have to get out the food processor and clean it all too, just one bowl!!

      Hope you and bub are feeling well xo

    Is there something I can use instead of unhulled Tahiti? I love the blueberry bliss bites, I make a new batch almost every week!

      Hi Niki,

      You could probably sub any kind of nut butter you like, it will change the flavor slightly. I haven’t tried but it should work just fine 🙂 Let me know how it goes.

      PS – So glad to hear you love the blueberry bliss bites too, yum! 🙂
