We love many different versions of date balls, but this is the easiest and definitely one of our favorites. Choose this for travel snacks or a healthier dessert.
1 cup pitted dates
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons almond milk
Pinch of salt
Mix together all ingredients in a food processor.
Scrape down the sides and mix until smooth.
Refrigerate for 15-20 minutes (or longer).
Roll into bite sized balls and store in a sealed container for up to a week, but they will surely be eaten before then :)
My dates occasionally dry out in the pantry. I heat them in a bowl of water for about one minute on 50% power in the microwave and then drain the water before adding them to the recipe.
