Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Bliss Balls
My family is totally obsessed with Larabars – anyone else?! My husband takes one daily to work. They’re delicious, and made with whole ingredients like nuts, dried fruit, and dates – those are actually usually the only ingredients on the package.
While I have yet to make homemade Larabars, I have noticed they are easily done and basically made the same way that bliss balls are. Instead of pressed and cut into bars, the mixture is rolled into balls (duh.)
Don’t ask me where the name “bliss balls” came from. I googled with no definitive results. It probably has something to do with the fact that they are pure. friggin. bliss. Sweet, chewy, crunchy. Yes, please.
This morning, as I was looking over the ingredients in my pantry, the raisins and rolled oats were calling my name. I just had to try my hand at Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Bliss Balls. I was not disappointed.
If you love oatmeal raisin cookies, you’ll be obsessed with these. They contain only four simple ingredients: raisins, rolled oats, medjool dates, and walnuts. You can also add a little cinnamon.
All of the ingredients come together in a food processor or blender. And then you simply roll them together by hand and store in a glass container in the fridge.

- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/2 cup walnuts
- 12 medjool dates, pits removed
- 3/4 cup rolled oats
In a food processor or blender, pulse together raisins and walnuts until roughly chopped.
Add the medjool dates in the blender with the raisins and walnuts and pulse until the dates are fully broken down and mushy.
Add the oats and continue to pulse until fully incorporated. If the mixture is dry, you can add a couple more dates. If the mixture is too sticky to form into balls, add more oats.
Form the mixture into balls (about 1 tablespoon each). Store in a container in the fridge.
These nutritional facts are for one bliss ball, if you make 12 balls from the recipe.
