2 cup Medjool date
1/4 cup Water (warm water)
3/4 cup Oats, dry
1/2 cup Coconut flakes (toasted)
1/4 cup Sesame seeds

1. Place dates and warm water in a food processor and process until smooth.

2. Scoop the creamed dates into a bowl and fold in oats, coconut flakes (with the exception of the extra for coating), sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, and almonds until mixed. If the mixture is soggy then slowly add more oats; alternatively, if the mixture is too dry slowly add warm water.

3. Shape balls between 3 to 4 cm in diameter, roll them in coconut flakes, and place on a tray parchment paper-lined tray.

4. Cover the tray and place it in the freezer for 30 minutes to set. Enjoy right away or store. (see notes for storage)


Quick Tips

  • You can use a variety of nuts and seeds. You can also roll the balls in sesame seeds, flaxseeds, cacao powder or hemp hearts.

No almonds

  • Use walnuts, pecans, or cashews instead.


  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week or freezer for up to a month. If storing in the freezer, ensure to separate the balls with parchment paper so they don't stick to each other. Remove from the freezer 10-15 minutes and allow balls to soften before eating.

Nutritional Highlights

  • Dates are high in fiber, antioxidants, potassium, and magnesium.
