  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 1 cup natural walnuts
  • 1/4-1/2 cup cacao (depending on how rich you’re feeling!)
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed meal or LSA (ground linseed, sunflower seed and almond meal)
  • 5 tbsp peanut butter (ideally nuts only, e.g. Mayvers or Pics)
  • Enough coconut, sesame seeds, chia seeds or cacao for rolling – approx. 1/4 cup (optional)


  1. Add all ingredients except coatings to a food processor and blend until a wet, sticky consistency forms.
  2. Roll into balls. Tip: if you wet your hands before rolling less mixture will stick to them. It seems counter-intuitive but it works.
  3. If you’re feeling energetic, coat in your preferred coating.
  4. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
