These are cookie-dough texture if you pop them in the fridge/freezer. Not the usual bliss ball, this one is oat-based with cacao nibs…oh and did we mention they make for the perfect energy hit before training?


Makes 20-24 balls

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 10 medjool dates, seeds removed
  • 5 Tbsp water
  • 3 Tbsp shredded coconut
  • 2 Tbsp cacao nibs
  • 1 whole vanilla bean, seeds scraped
  • Dash fine-grain salt


  1. Using a high-powered blender, process oats until you get a coarse sand texture, a few whole oats are fine to create a bit more interest.
  2. Next add shredded coconut and vanilla – give blend it enough to combine.
  3. Now add the pitted dates, and add the water slowly, as the blender is going.
  4. Lastly fold the cacao nibs through your mixture
  5. Roll into balls, and either leave the balls as is, or roll them in cacao powder.

NOTE…If short on time, press the whole mixture into a baking tray and cut into scries after being refrigerated for an hour.
