These vegan chocolate protein balls are my version of the popular bliss ball. They are nutritious treats that are delicious too!

Ingredients (serves 20 | makes 20 balls)

  • 2 1/2 Cups Chopped dates
  • 1/3 Cup Peanut Butter
  • 3/4 Cup Maple Syrup
  • 2 scoops Sun warrior chocolate protein powder
  • 1 Cup Raw Cashew nuts
  • 50 grams 70% cocoa Lindt chocolate
  • Coconut for rolling


  1. Soak dates in boiling water for 10 minutes then drain.
  2. Mash dates with peanut butter and maple syrup until no chunks remain. Mix in protein powder.
  3. Blast the cashew nuts in the food processor or Vitamix until they are small even chunks and mix into date mixture. Grate the chocolate and mix into date mixture.
  4. For best results leave this in the fridge for at least 1 hour before rolling into balls. To roll into balls take heaped dessert spoon of mixture, roll into ball and then roll into coconut. Store in the fridge.

  • Nice idea to use your protein powder. I am pretty sure we can omit it


  • I don’t think I’ve ever used protein powder in making something or baking something before. Can the whole family eat it then? Including the kids?


  • I need to try this love this sort of recipe and it delivered in a pretty recipe thanks


  • These are very sweet with dates, maple syrup and Lindt chocolate. Personally I find that when you make the balls with just dates as sweetener, it’s sweet enough.


  • Maple syrup and Lindt chocolate has got me with these bliss balls – great ingredients.


  • The picture drew me in and love what they are made from.


  • I love this recipe. My husband is trying a vegan lifestyle and he’s a gym junkie so this is definitely a recipe I will be using.


  • These are fantastic. My son is all about protein bars and balls at the moment, so I’ll definitely be making these.


  • Nice one ! Instead of maple syrup I would use yacon syrup and instead of Lindt chocolate I would use Raw chocolate.


  • An interesting blend of ingredients, cheers.


  • Thanks for posting a chocolate recipe – can never have too many!


  • I’m craving chocolate so much at the moment, ill have to give these a go they look good


  • yummy healthy snack


  • Oh wow, these look amazing and I love that they’re vegan! Must try, thanks for sharing!


  • Noticed the Lindt chocolate in these – sold!!!

    • Me too! Lindt chocolate is just so smooth and creamy and I make all recipes when the ingredients list includes Lindt chocolate. :)
