Savoury Bliss Balls

These two bite balls may be small but they really pack a punch. Filled with plant-based proteins, like chickpeas and pumpkin seeds, they’re healthy and delicious.


  • 1 (398ml) can organic chickpeas
  • 1 cup (250ml) shelled organic raw pistachios
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) organic tahini
  • 1 tbsp (15ml) dried organic fine herbs
  • 1 tsp (5ml) organic kosher or organic sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp (2ml) each organic garlic and organic onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp (1ml) red pepper flakes (or more for increased heat)
  • Juice and zest of 1 organic lemon
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) organic raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) organic coconut oil, melted
  • Choice of organic hemp hearts, dried organic coconut, organic sesame seeds, organic chia seeds and/or organic flax seeds for coating the balls


  1. In a food processor, add chickpeas, pistachios, tahini, herbs, salt, garlic and onion powder, red pepper flakes, lemon juice and zest. Pulse to coarse paste. Remove to a bowl; stir in pumpkin seeds and coconut oil.
  2. Roll into 1 tbsp sized balls and coat in choice of hemp hearts, seeds or coconut.
  3. Keep covered and refrigerated for up to one week or place in the freezer for up to six weeks.
  4. Serve as a snack, in a bento box, or on a fresh salad.
  5. They can also be made nut free by swapping out the cup of pistachios for a cup of pumpkin seeds.
