Sometimes called Energy Balls, Date Balls can have a variety of ingredients. 

No sugar in this recipe; but you don’t have to tell!

For best flavor date balls should be made with Medjool dates, which are rich, almost caramel-like, and delicious.

I am sure you will enjoy them as much as my friends do. They ask me for this recipe often.

Date balls are a great treat for anytime and can satisfy any sweet tooth.


12 fresh Medjool dates, pitted

1/2 cup oatmeal

1/2 tsp. vanilla

1 tsp. ground cinnamon


Add above four ingredients into a food processor and process until very well combined, several minutes, until it becomes “dough like.”

Make into 1 inch balls and store in airtight container in the refrigerator.

Easy does it when eating these!

Enjoy them slowly, savoring every morsel!


2 Tbsp. unsweetened coconut

2 Tbsp. vegan chocolate chips or cacao nibs

2 Tbsp. walnuts or nut of choice

2 Tbsp. natural peanut butter


  • If you want a Caramel Apple Party in your mouth, slice an apple and take a bite of apple and date ball at the same time. Soooo yummy! 
  • For best results be sure to use Medjool Dates normally found near the bananas in most grocery stores.
  • Look for dates that are shiny. The shine means they still have a good amount of moisture in them.
  • If your dates look dry (not shiny) soak them in a glass container in a little bit of water and store in the refrigerator for a day.
  • When choosing peanut butter as an add-in I recommend peanut butter without sugar or other ingredients, just peanuts.
