Nuts for Life - Golden spiced mango coconut bliss bites


  • 1/2 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 3/4 cup dried mango
  • 4 tablespoon of shredded coconut
  • 1 teaspoon water, mixed with 1/2 teaspoon of coconut extract
  • 2 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon of turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of water
  • 1/8 teaspoon of ground black pepper

Optional add ins

  • 1 teaspoon of maca powder
  • 2 tablespoon of hemp seeds

Optional for serving

  • Freeze dried mango, crushed to powder
  • Finely shredded coconut flakes


  1. Optional, but highly recommended – Place your nuts onto a lined baking tray and roast at 175’C for 5-10 minutes until lightly toasted.
  2. Once toasted, place the nuts into your food processor/blender and pulse until crumbly (you want there to still be a few bigger chunks to give the bites some nice texture).
  3. Add mango and process until the mixture starts to come together into a sticky, loose ‘dough’.
  4. Add vanilla, spices, water & coconut extract mix, hemp seeds (if using) and maca (if using), then process again until combined.
  5. Using your hands, roll approximately 1 small tablespoons worth of dough into bite size balls then set aside.
  6. If you are going to coat your bliss bites, simply place the mango powder and coconut into a small bowl or zip lock bag and gentle press/shake until nicely coated.


Store bliss bites in the fridge until ready to serve.
