First off, what are bliss balls?
Bliss balls are the perfect little to go snack. I consider bliss balls to be healthy little goodness balls. They are often made using nuts and seeds, with some natural sweetener. May people use either nut butters, coconut oil or something similar to hold them together!

Where to get hemp seeds from?
Because of the growing popularity of hemp seeds you can find them everywhere. I was able to get these hemp seeds from Costco but I also saw these at regular grocery stores.
Are these hemp seed bliss balls vegan?
Yess!!! These chocolate hemp seed balls are the best vegan option. They are made with plant based ingredient to satisfy everyone. From those who are vegan to those who are not.
Some might not even tell that these bliss balls are vegan. This recipe uses dates to sweeten them instead of using honey. It also uses dairy free chocolate so that they are perfectly vegan!
How to make these vegan bliss balls?
these incredibly easy chocolate bliss balls don’t require much. Pop your ingredients in the food processor, pulse and get an incredible chocolate bliss ball dough ready to roll.
- Start by removing the pit from the dates, then place the dates in the food processor with 1-2 tbsp of very hot water. Pulsate until a ball forms.
- Add in the nut butter, hemp seeds and cocoa powder and pulse a few more times until the dough comes together
- Refrigerate the dough them using a tablespoon, scoop out 12 equal balls. Roll them and drizzle them with some melted chocolate.

Tips to make these hemp seed bliss balls perfect every time!
- Go slow with the hot water– If your dates are soft and moist don’t add the hot water right away. place them in the food processor and pulsate until they form a ball. If your dates are a little on the hard side, add one tablespoon of water at a time and pulsate.
- If the mixture is too wet at the end add some more cocoa powder- The moistness of the recipe will depend on how wet your dates are and how much water you add in. If your final bliss ball dough is too wet then add a little bit of cocoa powder and mix again until you reach the desired consistency.
