Oat and date balls are a quick, on the go snack. Make them ahead of time and keep them around to pop in your mouth when you’re a little peckish!


  • 1 cup dates
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp natural peanut butter


  1. Place dates in a pot of water and bring to the boil.
  2. Drain the dates and put the liquid into a container and set aside for later.
  3. Place drained dates, coconut, peanut butter, oats and cacao powder in a food processor or a blender.
  4. Place the mixture into a bowl.
