Raw Vegan Date Energy Bites

Dates can be used in so many ways. Raw desserts, drinks, smoothies, cookies. I love the dense texture and the hint of sweetness they have. They make a great snack for pre or post workout, or even a quick pick me up in the afternoon. These little bites are loaded with goodies like whole oats, peanut butter, and walnuts.

Yield: 22 bites using a 1/2” scoop

Ingredients:

6 dates pitted

1/2 cup warm water

3/4 cup whole rolled oats

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/4 cup walnuts

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Preparation:

Pitt the dates and add to the food processor with water, oats, walnuts, peanut butter, and cinnamon. Pulse or run on low, scrape down sides and continue to pulse until well blended.

Have a plate or baking tray lined with parchment paper ready.

Using a baking scoop or spoon make small balls and place onto the plate or tray and put in the fridge to firm up for 1 hour and enjoy. These will last in the fridge for about a week.
