  • 3/4 c pitted dates
  • 4 TB almond butter
  • 1/2 c old fashioned rolled oats (gluten free if needed)
  • 2 TB crushed slivered almonds
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Soak dates in very hot water for about 10 mins - reserve some of the liquid.
  2. Put the dates into a food processor and process until chopped and semi smooth.
  3. Add the date mixture and the rest of the ingredients to a bowl and mix together.
  4. Roll into about 1-inch balls.
  5. Place in freezer to set for about 10 minutes then store in the fridge for 7 days.

Recipe Notes

*If it's too thick to process, add a tablespoon or 2 of the reserved date water at a time. You don't want it thin.
