  • 1 cup Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/2 cup dry roasted peanuts, unsalted
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter, smooth
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened or dark chocolate, chopped into small pieces


  • Add the dates, peanuts, peanut butter, oats and vanilla to a food processor. Process until the mixture sticks together when pressed (about 2-3 minutes).
  • Add the chopped chocolate and pulse a few times to combine.
  • Form the dough into about 12 little balls using your hands.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer. You can eat them straight from the freezer!


I used a lightly salted peanut butter. If using a natural peanut butter, add a small pinch of salt.
You can replace the chocolate for 1-2 tablespoons of cocoa nibs.
