Lemon Quinoa Bliss Balls

These balls are nutritious, wholesome and deliciously tangy.

I will be experimenting more with quinoa in raw desserts, as I am super intrigued by the thought of all the nut-free raw desserts I could create with this nutrient dense ingredient. I love the idea of using quinoa in my desserts, as it is a complete source of protein, and also a great source of fiber.


  • 1/2 cup white quinoa , soaked for 18 hours (measured before soaking)

  • 1/2 cup gluten-free oat flakes

  • 8 medjool dates, soaked in warm water for 20 minutes

  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoon lemon juice (start with 1/4 cup, and add more if you would like more tanginess)

  • zest of one organic lemon

  • pinch of salt

  • vanilla essence (optional)


  1. Soak quinoa for 18 hours, or at least overnight in a bowl. Rinse and drain well.

  2. Add all ingredients to a food processor, and process until it comes together to a sticky dough.

  3. Scoop out tablespoonfuls, and roll into balls. Dough will be soft at this point.

  4. Add 3-4 tablespoons of coconut flour (alternatively, you canuse shredded coconut) to a bowl. Roll balls into the coconut flour.

  5. Leave to set in the fridge for an hour. Balls will harden up.

  6. Enjoy!
