  • Place dates in a medium bowl and cover with warm water. Let soak for 5 minutes to soften then drain.
  • Add drained dates and all remaining ingredients into a food processor and pulse until mixture turns into the consistency of sand. (Depending on your food processor, this could take several minutes so don't worry if it doesn't happen right away!)
  • Remove blade from the unit. To form balls, press mixture into a small stainless steel scoop then roll in between your palms to form evenly sized bites. Continue until mixture is gone.
  • You can enjoy room temperature or let chill for 30 minutes before enjoying.


Energy balls can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.
