The ULTIMATE Essential Oil Bliss Balls Recipe

This week is Food Allergy Week and to commemorate it I’m sharing my recipe for the ULTIMATE Essential Oil Bliss Balls.

“ULTIMATE is quite a big claim to make” you say?  Well here are five reasons why:

  1. Nut Free
  2. Gluten Free
  3. Dairy Free
  4. Egg Free
  5. Vegan

I rest my case.

But in all seriousness, allergy awareness is important. When you host an event, the last thing you want is to bring harm to anyone who attends.  It’s also thoughtful to include snacks for those who normally find themselves excluded from the buffet due to allergies and intolerances.

What is Food Allergy Week (FAW)?

Food Allergy Week is an important annual initiative of Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia that aims to raise awareness about food allergy in Australia, to help reduce the risk of a reaction for those living with food allergy and to help manage potentially life-threatening emergencies when they happen.

Food Allergy Week runs from 13-19 May 2018 and calls on all Australians to Be Aware and Show You Care by getting involved with this year’s activities.

Now back to these bliss balls.

This recipe is so incredibly versatile – I just love it.  Great for lunch boxes, afternoon snacks, hosting events – and the flavour combinations are endless!  I have created two flavour variations for this recipe: strawberry and bergamot, and a classic, apple and cinnamon.  However you can experiment with your favourite freeze dried fruit and essential oil combinations.

The texture of these bliss balls is so smooth and they are not sticky at all so dusting them with coconut is optional (and best done quickly or else it won’t stick).  Plus you can even push the mixture into silicone moulds and create fun shapes for the kids (check out my dinosaurs!!).

Method

Add all dry ingredients into a food processor and process on medium until combined.  Add essential oils and process again for 20 seconds to disperse oil evenly throughout mixture.  Add condensed coconut milk and process on medium until combined, then on high until the mixture rolls itself into a ball of dough.

Roll into balls and dust with coconut (optional) or press into silicone moulds.  Refrigerate until firm.

Best served at room temperature.


Cautions  Leda Arrowroot Biscuits contain an E-SOY derived vegetable oil.  May also contain traces of tree nuts, peanuts, sulphites and sesame.

Check the label on you essential oil bottle to ensure your essential oil is suitable for flavouring use.


If you have some fun silicone ice cube moulds  consider using these to make some fun shapes for the kids like I did.

Enjoy!

    This looks tasty and I’m considering it for an upcoming holiday make & take. Approximately how many balls does one recipe make?

      Hi Carla,
      Thanks for getting in touch. The yield for this recipe is approximately 8 bliss balls. If you want to give them a festive makeover you can push your bliss ball mixture into silicone candy molds (like I did here) which would yield about 24 pieces.

      Enjoy!
