Made from just 5 good-for-you ingredients!


  • 1 cup pitted Medjool dates dates (about 12 dates)
  • 2/3 cup almonds
  • 1 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 3 Tablespoons creamy peanut butter, or any nut butter
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • optional: coat with crushed peanuts or cocoa powder


  • Soak the dates in warm water for about 10 minutes to plump up. Meanwhile, line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat (for easy clean up.) Set aside.
  • Place the dates1, almonds2, cocoa powder, peanut butter3, honey and salt into the food processor or blender. Blend/pulse together until a moist, crumbly dough forms— it should come together with your hands. This will take a few minutes of blending/pulsing. If the dough is too dry, add in a few more dates.
  • Once the dough is formed, scoop 1 Tablespoon of dough and roll into a smooth ball. Place onto the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough. If coating: roll the balls into the crushed peanuts or cocoa powder. Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to allow them to set.
  • Cover tightly and store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. 


Make ahead tip: These bites can be frozen for up to 3 months until stored in an air tight bag or container. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator.
1Dates can be found in the produce section of any grocery store. Be sure to soak into warm water as it will add more moisture to these. If this step is skipped, additional nut butter will be needed.
