Yield: 12-15 energy ball

total time

Ingredients

1 cup pitted dates*

2/3 cup natural peanut butter**

1/3 cup oats, rolled or quick-cooking (use gluten-free oats if needed)

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 TBSP chia seeds

1/4 cup mini chocolate chips (I use this dairy-free version)

a food processor or mixer (I recommend a food processor for the fastest, best mixing)

Directions

Mix the dates in a food processor until chopped into small pieces. If they’re too hard, you can soak them for 10 minutes in warm water first, then drain and try again.

Add the peanut butter, oats, vanilla extract, and chia seeds. Mix again.

The mixture should be thick enough to form into balls without being too sticky. If it’s too sticky, add 1-2 more tbsp oats. If it’s too dry, add 1-2 more tbsp peanut butter.

Lastly, add the mini dairy-free chocolate chips and mix gently.

Roll into small balls. Enjoy right away.

Store in the refrigerator.
