ViBERi New Zealand Logo with Blackcurrants

Cacao & Blackcurrant Bliss Balls

This recipe is super quick and simple to make, and a bonus is it's nut free, nearly gluten free* for anyone with allergies, plus it's vegan!
Rolling these Bliss Balls in Blackcurrant powder not only adds colour but also a fantastic zing 


- 1 Cup rolled oats 
- 2 Tablespoons cacao or cocoa powder
- 12 pitted fresh dates 
- 1 cup desiccated coconut 
- 2 tablespoons natural maple syrup 
- 2-3 Tablespoons Viberi Blackcurrant Powder


Step 1 : 
Process rolled oats, cacao/cocoa powder, maple syrup, desiccated coconut and soft dried Blackcurrants in a food processor or Nutri Bullet until almost smooth. 
Step 2:
Place blackcurrant powder into a small bowl. Roll the mixture into small balls, approximately 2 tablespoons worth, these can be altered depending on your desired size. Once shaped, roll balls in the Blackcurrant Powder. 
Store these Bliss Balls in the fridge or freezer, they will last up to 2 weeks in an airtight container in the fridge.

Best gluten free substitute for oats is flaked quinoa – very easy to use, better tasting but more expensive than oats. Buy from The Source Bulk Foods or New World in Victoria Market, Auckland


Hi Claire,
Thanks kindly for that information. We’ve updated the recipe slightly.
Do you have an idea for a gluten free substitute for a recipe like this by any chance that we could share?
Thanks again!


Oats are not classified as gluten free in New Zealand or Australia due to stricter regulation.
