  • 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


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