  • 12 Medjool dates pitted and soaked in hot water
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats *
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter natural creamy without added sugars or oils
  • 3 tablespoon flax seeds ground
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of sea salt


  1. Remove the pits from dates and soak them in hot water for several minutes. Drain but keep some water.
  2. Place Medjool dates, rolled oats and almonds in a high-speed food processor and process on high for about a minute.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and process for another 1 to 2 minutes until your dough is formed.
  4. Check texture by pinching the dough between your fingers. It should be sticky and able to keep its shape. If the mixture is too dry, add more water in which you have soaked the dates.
  5. Using a tablespoon, scoop out dough and roll between your palms to form your balls. Sprinkle with some sea salt.

Recipe Notes

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until serving. Keep the energy balls frozen up to 3 months in the freezer. As a measure, I used a US cup (240ml).
* For GLUTEN-FREE version, use certified gluten-free oats.
