Delicious no-bake energy bites filled with peanut butter, coconut, oats, and sweetened with Medjool dates. An easy and healthy snack recipe for anytime. A gluten-free and vegan energy ball recipe.


  • 1 cup packed Medjool dates, pitted (about 12)
  • 3/4 cup mixed nuts (I used walnuts and pecans)
  • 1/2 cup all natural creamy peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup flaked unsweetened coconut
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed meal
  • 23 TBS water, as needed


  1. Make mixture: In bowl of large food processor add pitted dates, nuts and coconut. Process until nuts have broken down into small pieces and mixture is sticky. Add in oats, peanut butter and flax seed meal; process until mixture comes together, adding water 1 tablespoon at a time towards the end. The mixture may feel somewhat crumbly, but should be moist and hold together once formed into balls. Add a little bit of water and continue to process if needed. 
  2. Roll: Using a rounded tablespoon or medium cookie scoop, shape mixture into balls and place on parchment lined baking sheet. You should get about 20 or so energy balls.
  3. Chill: Place baking sheet in freezer for 20 minutes before transferring to container of your choice.
  4. Store in airtight container in fridge up to two weeks, or label and freeze up to three months.
