Equipment

  • Food Processor

Ingredients

  • 4-5 medjool dates
  • 2 tbsp gluten-free old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter (I love Trader Joe's no stir)
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (I use TJ's dark chunks)
  • 1/2 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil

Instructions

  • Add dates to¬†food processor or mini chopper and pulse until dates are finely chopped and form a sticky ball. Add in oats and pulse a few more times until combined.
  • Add peanut butter and process until combined. If the mixture seems too oily, add another TBSP of oats.
  • Scoop out peanut butter dough by the tablespoon and roll into balls. Place balls on parchment paper.
  • Place peanut butter balls in the freezer until firm (several hours or overnight). This step makes it easier to dip the balls into the chocolate.
  • A couple minutes before taking the balls out of the freezer, combine your chocolate chips with the coconut oil and melt the mixture. Use a double boiler or microwave in 30 second increments (stirring after every 30 seconds) until the chocolate is melted.
  • Dip chilled balls into the melted chocolate and roll until covered. Place back on parchment paper. Once all balls are covered, place back in freezer until hard.
  • Store in freezer or fridge until ready to enjoy.
