  • Add the dates to a food processor and process until they form a thick paste. Add in the oats and pulse a few more times until just combined.
  • Place date oat mixture into a medium bowl. Stir in brewer's yeast and peanut butter. Then add almond milk and honey and stir well to combine. If the mixture seems dry, add an extra splash of almond milk. Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Using your hands or a small/medium cookie scoop form mixture into bite-size balls.
  • Store bites in a covered airtight container in the fridge for 1-2 weeks or in the freezer for up to 3 months. If you're storing them in the freezer, remove 5-10 minutes before to let the bite thaw before eating.
