  • 250 g dates chopped. Soak for 10 minutes in boiling water if dry
  • 50 g oats
  • 3 tbsp peanut butter
  • 3 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • Pinch of salt optional
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds optional
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder


  • If you've soaked your dates drain them well and pat dry with some kitchen towel.
  • Place the dates and all the remaining ingredients into your blender or food processor and process until the mixture comes together. Depending on the strength of your processor you may wish to grind down the seeds and oats before adding the dates to make a smoother texture.
  • If the mixture seems too sticky add a little extra oats.
  • Lightly oil your hands and roll into 12 balls.
  • Place in the fridge for 30 minutes before serving. Keep refrigerated.
