  • 16 dates pitted
  • 1/2 cup all natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3-4 tbsp water
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup real dark chocolate chips


  1. Add the dates, the peanut butter, the cocoa powder, and the vanilla extract to your food processor.
  2. Process the mixture on high speed until it's smooth with no large chunks, scraping down the sides to make sure everything is incorporated.
  3. Continue processing on high speed, adding the water one tablespoon at a time until the mixture is soft.
  4. Transfer the peanut butter mixture to a bowl and add the oats and the chocolate chips.
  5. Stir everything together well with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula, and then roll the mixture into about 16 balls.
  6. Place the balls in a parchment-lined container and store them in the refrigerator!
