1 3/4 cup Rolled Naked Oats

1/3 cup peanut butter

3 tbsp coconut oil

Directions:


To make the date puree, combine the pitted dates and water in a blender or food processor until a thick puree forms.  Alternatively, you can simmer the dates and water together in a small saucepan until they are soft, mashing them together with a fork, and then allowing the puree to cool.

Combine the date puree with the next 9 ingredients together in a mixing bowl.  If you want a slightly sweeter treat, you can also add a tbsp of honey to the mix at this point.

Roll the dough into balls, and then roll the balls in some extra coconut, hemp and/or oats to cover the outside and make them look oh-so-pretty.  

 

Keep them in the fridge for 20 minutes to harden…or just eat them on the spot 🙂
