Energy Bites

Recipe from Mind Body Green

  • 1 cup soft Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 cup rolled oats (gluten-free, if necessary)
  • ½ cup creamy sunflower seed butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons of water, only if necessary to blend
  • ½ cup semisweet chocolate chips


1. Process Medjool dates in a food processor until a sticky and creamy consistency is formed (may form a ball). Add in oats, sun butter, cinnamon, and vanilla and process until well-combined. If the dough is dry, you may add a few tablespoons of water to help everything stick together.

2. Gently pulse in the chocolate chips, just until they are well-incorporated into the dough.

3. Use your hands to form the dough into balls. Place onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and place in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to set. Enjoy!
