Spearminty Bliss Balls
All things minty and chocolate….nom nom…say no more. Today, I share with you my spearmint essential oil infused bliss balls. You will note it’s is a slightly different version of a bliss ball. All my bliss balls have nuts or seeds with dates, but the other ingredients may vary. Just giving you all options. Each to our own tastes, and sometimes I just don’t have all the ingredients and want to quickly throw together something tasty to eat. Here’s that recipe.
These bliss balls also taste amazing without any essential oil in them at all! Best of all they are gluten, dairy, corn (in fact completely grain free!), paleo and sugar free. Oh and raw and vegan. But, warning, they are highly addictive! I love having 3 (or maybe 4) with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate as a snack or even for lunch.
Remember, I use dōTERRA essential oils. The spearmint essential oil can be ingested. Do not buy a spearmint essential oil from the shops and use it, as it may actually be harmful to ingest. If you want to buy a bottle of dōTERRA spearmint essential oil then buy from me and my team.
Enjoy these choc spearminty balls of deliciousness.

Author: Tracey Francis of Essential Olie
- 12 Medjool Dates (de-pitted)
- 1 cup Almonds*
- ½ cup Raw Cacao Powder
- ½ cup Desiccated Coconut (plus ¼ cup extra for coating)
- 6 drops of dōTERRA Spearmint Essential Oil
- 2 Tablespoons Water
- Using a food processor blend dates, almonds, ½ cup of desiccated coconut, dōTERRA’s spearmint essential oil and water til it achieves the consistency you like. In my processor it goes into one big ball and I know it’s the right consistency.
- Put ¼ cup desiccated coconut on a plate.
- Using a small ice cream scooper (I use a size 70) and your hands create a ball – this is where it starts to get messy
- Roll ball in desiccated coconut then roll in the palm of your hand so that the coconut is blended a little into the ball
- Repeat til all mixture is used up
- Keep in refrigerator in an airtight container (you can also freeze them) – you can keep them out of the refrigerator but I like them cold and they will last longer.
* I use activated almonds that I have already activated and dried. If you are soaking your almonds the night before then don’t add the 2 Tablespoons of water as the almonds are already wet enough to help bind the ingredients.
