Calories 48kcal


  • 9 (200g) Medjool Dates (pitted) * See Note 1
  • 15 Cherries (pitted)
  • 1 cup (75g) Desiccated Coconut (unsweetened)
  • 1/3 cup (35g) Oats * See Note 2
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Cacao Powder


  • Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend until everything is finely chopped and the mixture comes together. (See photo above)
  • Roll into small balls. Mine were around 1/2 a tablespoon each, weighing roughly 13g. I made 28 balls from the mixture. 
  • Leave uncoated or roll in some desiccated coconut / cacao / LSA mix / crushed nuts etc.


  1. Fresh dates work best in this recipe. If your dates are quite dry and hard then soak them in some hot water for a couple of minutes. This will make it easier to blend. 
  2. If you are not avoiding nuts then almonds taste delicious in this recipe. Try substituting the oats with almonds.
