Recipe type: Dessert
Servings: 22

Ingredients

  • 200 g raw cashew nuts
  • 100 g desiccated coconut plus extra for rolling
  • 50 g coconut oil
  • 50 g organic maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla bean paste or extract
  • 100 g dark chocolate roughly chopped

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients, except chocolate, to mixer bowl and blend for 15 sec/speed 8/MC on.
  • Use spatula to redistribute ingredients, and blend for another 15 sec/speed 8/MC on.
  • With damp hands, roll walnut sized balls. Tip: squeeze the mixture initially to compress, then roll. Ensure hands are kept damp. If your hands are hot, they will go oily but this will not impact the final product.
  • Put balls in the freezer for 20 min.
  • After 20 min, add dark chocolate to mixer bowl, mill for 10 sec/speed 9/MC on. Scrape bowl down. Melt for 3 min/50°C or 120°F/speed 2/MC on.
  • Pour chocolate into a bowl and extra desiccated coconut into a second bowl.
  • Coat the frozen bliss balls in chocolate, and then coconut one at a time.
  • Refrigerate for 30 min or until needed.

Notes

To make these into a quick slice, simply press into a slice tin and coat with chocolate then coconut.

  1. Love these! I coated half for now and left half frozen for later – enforced self control 🙂 I also didn’t roll I coconut afterwards as I’d ran out and they are so good I wouldn’t bother next time. Thank you!

        1. You could use Cacao butter instead of coconut oil, it use either or when I make this chocolate. So it’s a combination of raw cacao, honey and the oil OR butter. Hope this helps!

  2. These look great but my daughter is allergic to cashews and pistachios. Could someone please suggest how I could adapt the recipe to make them safe to have in our house? Would a direct sub of almonds work? Thanks.

  3. I absolutely love this recipe. I’ve made it for friends and everyone asks for the recipe. I have made it as a slice and also used silicone moulds (either chocolate moulds or silicone mini-muffin pans). I have also made it without the chocolate – such a delicious snack! I can’t get enough!

  4. Amazing. I made 6 batches for my family (mainly the hubby) over the Christmas period… About 10 days. They are so easy to make and you can secretly cut the sugar down a tiny bot if people are over indulging. The coconut is just fab!

  5. These are amazing. Made them a few times now, we had leftover activated cashews and macas so used both of them the second time making, couldn’t even tell the difference! Personal preference is to melt the chocolate in microwave rather than Thermo, just because rolling the balls in chocolate is easier without navigating blades, also found that we needed a lot more chocolate than the recipe stated – that might just be my love of chocolate though! :)))

    1. I found the same!! Thought I must have over choc dipped also! This will sound silly- but how long did you melt the chocolate for in the microwave? Did you have to do anything? I’m a massive ameture! 😊

  6. I only needed a few of these so did half quantity. Had no coconut oil so used evaporated milk as someone suggested previously. Very tasty little morsels, thank you Nik.

  7. Can anyone tell me how long these would last in the fridge (if hidden well enough)? Also, I love lamingtons with jam, could I add jam somehow? Thanks, can’t wIt to try them!

    1. Depends how fiddly you want to be, you could put a bit of jam inside each ball when rolling them, so you bite into it and get a mouthful of jam. Otherwise someone said they made it as a slice, you could do that but put a thin layer of cashew mix, layer of jam, other layer of cashew mix, then chocolate and coconut on top! 🙂

    2. My daughter made these for Christmas and put a frozen raspberry in the middle , similar to jam I guess, they were delicious 😍

    3. I’ve just made these. For ‘jam’ I put a frozen raspberry in the middle of each. Figure they will cut through the sweetness.

  8. Delicious – made these with Tahini as well, didn’t even roll in chocolate as they were delicious on their own and I was being lazy!

  9. Just divine! They didn’t last very long and my only problem is that I didn’t make enough. Next time I will double the ingredients. I’m not sharing!

  10. Can’t get enough of these Nik. Kids and I gobble them up. So much like Lamington Flavour. We’ve made these (myself & 3yr old twins) many times now. It’s quite fun. I might add a peppermint oil next time for a change.going to continue to be a regular

    1. These are a weekly treat in our house, I substitute with sunflower and pepita seeds to make it daycare friendly for the kids, but keep it just as is (it’s perfect) for me and hubby!!

  11. I made these today as a slice and all I can say is delicious, dangerously delicious. I keep going to the fridge and taking a piece, can’t help myself. Thanks for another winning recipe Nik.

  12. Made these for my mum’s and mine birthday party – wow! what a hit! Another amazing recipe thank you Nikalene

  13. These Raw lamington balls are absolutely delicious! They even taste nice without the chocolate for a sugar free alternative!

  14. I made this today using half blanched almonds and half raw cashews. They were oily whilst I rolled them but once set, they were fine. I used quirky cooking’s dairy free raw chocolate and after setting they were amazing! Hopefully I’ll have some left once the husband and daughter have got stuck into them so I have a “healthy” treat for when those sugar cravings kick in! Well done Nik, another awesome recipe! Thanks 🙂 xx

  15. These taste great, but I ended up with a pool of oil when I rolled them. Anyone else had that? It was like the coconut oil just ran straight out… and its not even that hot here today. I might try with less coconut oil next time.

    1. That happened to me too Caro. I think it might just be all the oils from the nuts. Once they are in the freezer though the oils all blend together.

    2. I reduced the oil a little tonight and they were a little crumbly. I decided to just squeeze the extra oil out next time.
