low FODMAP and gluten free Chocolate orange bliss balls

Chocolate orange bliss balls

There are lots of bliss ball recipes out there, however most of them contain dates binding them together which are high in FODMAPs. I’ve come up with this bliss ball recipe which is low in FODMAPs (providing you don’t have to many at once as they contain ground almonds). I often pack them up and take them out and about with me to snack on the go, but they also go nicely with a cup of tea. They contain Aduna Baobab adding in some extra nutrients. Baobab is rich in Vitamin C, fibre and antioxidants contributing to skin and immune health. All of this packed into some tasty bliss balls…happy days!


1/2 cup of ground almonds

1/3 cup of ground oats

1/3 cup of desiccated coconut

2 tsps of Aduna baobab powder

Juice of half an orange

2 tbsp coconut oil (not melted)

2 tbsp peanut butter

1 tbsp raw cacao

Some orange rind for coating


These are perfect to make when you have a busy schedule as you simply through all the ingredients into a food processor and blend for 1-2 minutes. Once all mixed together, roll into balls and coat with some orange rind. Place in the fridge to set. These should keep in the fridge for approx one week.

    Awesome! You’re right–bliss balls/energy balls do tend to be high in FODMAPs, If I can’t get my hands on Aduna baobab, is it possible to omit, or is there a good substitute?
