  • 1 cup (70 g) unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt


  1. Add the oats to a food processor or high-speed blender and pulse a few times to break them down a bit.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until it forms a thick dough.
  3. Roll into approximately 21 balls.
  4. Store in the fridge or freezer in an airtight container.


It’s important to use soft, fresh dates in this recipe. If your dates are dry, soak them in hot water for 10 minutes then drain well before using.
