Date and Apricot Chia Bliss Balls Recipe with Lemon Essential Oil

Date, Apricot & Chia Bliss Balls with Lemon Essential Oil

Quick and easy to make, these bliss balls with Young Living lemon essential oil are the perfect healthy snack and are super yummy. The lemon oil really adds a tangy zing! You can also use Citrus Fresh oil, as it’s also wonderful in place of the lemon oil. This recipe is by Chef Kate.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Servings: 40


½ cup almonds, walnuts or macadamia nuts

8 dried organic apricots, roughly chopped

10 pitted dates, roughly chopped

¾ cup shredded coconut

1/2 cup chia seeds

½ cup tahini or almond spread

1 – 2 tbsp honey, maple syrup or agave syrup (optional, to taste)

½ tsp vanilla extract (optional)

dash of sea salt (optional)

8 drops Young Living lemon essential oil or Citrus Fresh oil (to taste)


In a food processor or Thermomix, place the nuts, chopped apricots, chia seeds and chopped dates and process stopping and starting a few times until they are coarsely chopped.

Then add the rest of the ingredients and process stopping and starting a few times until the mixture is combine well. Pick up a little of the mixture and roll it into a ball. If it is too crumbly you may need to add a little more tahini or almond spread and process again.

Then taste the mixture and add a little more lemon essential oil if desired and mix.

Roll the mixture into balls and then dip in coconut, chill and serve.

You can also line a baking tin or baking dish (or a few depending on the size of your containers) with baking paper then press the mixture into the pan about 10cm thick/high.

Sprinkle with coconut and press down gently to help adhere the coconut. Chill and cut into pieces and serve or refrigerate for up to 1 week and freeze well covered for up to one month.

TIP:  Citrus essential oils can be added a little more freely, but still add a few of drops to start, taste and add more if desired. Always mix your essential oils in well. You may decide that the balls are sweet enough with just the dates and omit the honey, if desired.
