  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup mini semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips (I use mini vegan chocolate chips, they taste less sweet to me)
  • 2 tbsp ground coffee beans or 2 tsp instant espresso
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds


  1. Place dates in a food processor and blend until a paste forms.

  2. Place date paste, oats, chocolate chipes, coffee, and chia seeds in a medium bowl. Mix by hand until all ingredients are well blended. Place bowl in refrigerator for 10-15 minutes to make mixture easier to handle.

  3. Roll mixture into 9-11 balls. I found using 2 tablespoons of mixture made the right size of bite for my preference.

  4. Refrigerate for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 3-4 months.
