Before you start, if your dates are dry, soak in warm water for 5 minutes. Discard soaking water. Drain well before adding to the food processor.
In a food processor, using the S-blade attachment, add the dates. Pulse a few times until it forms pieces and is almost a paste.
Add peanut butter, vanilla extract, and maple syrup. Blend on medium-high speed until a paste forms.
Stop the food processor and add the Weetbix biscuits (I like to break them into pieces in the bowl as they blend faster), chia seeds, and desiccated coconut.
Blend again, stopping the food processor a few times to scrape down the sides of the bowl with a silicone spatula.
Blend until the batter is sticky and consistent and you can easily form balls. If too dry, add 1-2 teaspoons of water at a time to bring the mixture together. If too wet, add more Weetbix and blend until incorporated.
Lightly grease hands with coconut oil and roll balls of 1 tablespoon size.
Roll the bliss balls in more coconut and store them in the fridge in a sealed container for up to 1 week. Freeze in zip-lock bags for up to 1 month. Thaw at room temperature the day before.
