Allergy-Free Essential Oil Bliss Balls Recipe

  • Post author:

Many of our special needs children struggle with food allergies and intolerances.   At the same time, dietary intervention plays a huge role in many special needs homes. 

Sometimes it is a combination of both that has you diligently avoiding certain foods, and this can mean that even something as simple as a snack becomes a minefield to navigate. 

I was recently inspired by a can of coconut condensed milk to create the ULTIMATE essential oil bliss balls recipe.

“ULTIMATE is quite a big claim to make” you say?  Well here are five reasons why:

  1. Nut Free
  2. Gluten Free
  3. Dairy Free
  4. Egg Free
  5. Vegan

I rest my case.

But in all seriousness, this recipe is so incredibly versatile – I just love it.  Great for lunch boxes, afternoon snacks, hosting events – and the flavour combinations are endless! 

I have created two flavour variations for this recipe: strawberry and bergamot, and a classic, apple and cinnamon. 

Other freeze-dried fruits readily available are mango, pear, pineapple and tangerine.  So feel free to experiment with your favourite freeze dried fruit and essential oil combinations.

If fruit is on your ‘no-list’, then you can substitute with cocoa or cacao.  Alternatively simply flavour your bliss balls solely with essential oils.

The texture of these bliss balls is so smooth and they are not sticky at all so dusting them with coconut is optional (and best done quickly or else it won’t stick).  Plus you can even push the mixture into silicone moulds and create fun shapes for the kids (check out my dinosaurs!!).

Strawberry & Bergamot Bliss Balls

What you need

  • 1 Pack Leda Arrowroot Biscuits 205g
  • 20g (2 Packs) Freeze Dried Strawberries
  • ½ Cup Desiccated Coconut
  • ½ Cup (½ Can) Condensed Coconut Milk

Apple & Cinnamon Bliss Balls

What you need

  • 1 Pack Leda Arrowroot Biscuits 205g
  • 20g (2 Packs) Freeze Dried Apples
  • ½ Cup Desiccated Coconut
  • ½ Cup (½ Can) Condensed Coconut Milk
  • 3 Drops Cinnamon Essential Oil
  • Extra Coconut for Dusting (optional)


Add all dry ingredients into a food processor and process on medium until combined.  Add essential oils and process again for 20 seconds to disperse oil evenly throughout mixture.  Add condensed coconut milk and process on medium until combined, then on high until the mixture rolls itself into a ball of dough.

Roll into balls and dust with coconut (optional) or press into silicone moulds.  Refrigerate until firm. 

Best served at room temperature.

Cautions  Leda Arrowroot Biscuits contain an E-SOY derived vegetable oil.  May also contain traces of tree nuts, peanuts, sulphites and sesame.

Check the label on you essential oil bottle to ensure your essential oil is suitable for flavouring use.
