  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 8 pitted Medjool dates
  • 1/2 cup vanilla protein powder
  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 Tablespoons mini dark chocolate chips (I used enjoy life)


  1. Add dates to a food processor (affiliate link) and pulse until they form a thick paste. Add in rolled oats and pulse a few more times until just combined.
  2. Place date and oat mixture into a bowl. Stir in protein powder and peanut butter. Then add almond milk and stir well to combine. If the mixture seems dry, add an extra splash of almond milk. Stir in chocolate chips and form mixture into bite-size balls using your hands. You can test rolling the balls but they may start to crumble. Balls should be about one tablespoon in size. Store in a covered container in the fridge.
