8-10Dates, pitted and soaked in warm water for 5 minutes

Place all the ingredients - chickpeas, rolled oats, dates ( without their water), peanut butter, desiccated coconut and vanilla extract in a blender. Blend until well combined.
If the mixture is too dry, add water in which dates were soaked, a teaspoon at a time until you get a slightly sticky dough - like consistency.If the mixture seems too sticky, add some more oats or desiccated coconut.
Refrigerate the dough for 15-20 minutes. It makes handling easier.
Once the dough is chilled a bit, roll into even sized balls.
The bliss balls are ready to eat!
