    I’m not sure how I didn’t eat all of these Vanilla Almond Bliss Balls before photographing them. These were almost called Vanilla Almond Crack Balls but I didn’t want to scare anyone away with a blunt name like that. But to be 100% honest these gluten free Vanilla Almond Bliss Balls are seriously addicting! Luckily they are filled with healthy and nutritious ingredients so it’s an okay addiction to have. Yes, I am actually telling you it’s OK to be an addicted to these or really any Bliss Balls for that matter.

    Hi, my name is Rachel and I’m addicted to Bliss Balls. There I said it even though you all probably know that by now since we are getting quite the line up of bliss ball flavors here on my blog. Chocolate Hazelnut Bliss Balls, Honey Pretzel PB Bliss Balls, Nut Free Bliss Balls, just to name a few.

    Okay but let’s get to the point. These Vanilla Almond Bliss Balls are a delicious gluten free and vegan snack and they are made with 5 easy ingredients. One being Udi’s Steel Cut Oats, an excellent oatmeal option for anyone who has a gluten intolerance or prefers a gluten free lifestyle. Not to mention, Udi’s has so many delicious gluten free products for anyone who has celiac or a gluten intolerance (or just prefer gluten free food). These are my first Bliss Balls with steel cut oats and I am obsessing with the consistency that the steel cut oats brings to them. It is like an extra crunchy texture when you take a bite.

    Along with Udi’s Steel Cut Oats, we have Justin’s Vanilla Almond (crack) Butter is in these gems along with Ground Chia Seeds, Pitted Dates and Vanilla extract. All you have to do is blend it in your Magic Bullet and voila!

    • Splash of vanilla extract


    1. Blend the dates together until they are broken into small pieces.
    2. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until it looks like a dough consistency.
    3. Next roll up your sleeves and scoop out a spoonful of the dough and roll it into a ball form.

      Me too! I think next time I’d put it in the food processor, the steel cut oats definitely add a crunch!

    These look delicious, Rach! I love that you used steel-cut oats. I’m obsessed with oat bran at the moment so I might try subbing that :). Thanks for posting !

      Thank you so much, Jess! I absolutely think that oat bran would work too 🙂 Hope you love them!
