adapted from Ambitious Kitchen


  • 1 cup pitted medjool dates
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 T chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut


  1. Cover pitted dates with water and let soak for 15 minutes, then drain.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, add in pitted dates and process until a date paste forms.
  3. Add in peanut butter and process again until well combined.
  4. In a large bowl, combine oats, chocolate chips, chia seeds, and coconut.
  5. Add peanut butter mixture to bowl and mix together. (The mixture is very sticky – I use my hands to make sure the ingredients are well incorporated.)
  6. Roll the dough into small balls approximately 1 1/2 inch in size and place on parchment paper. Freeze for 15 minutes, then move to the fridge for storage. Makes about 20 bites.
