Easy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookie Energy Balls

Recipe from Trainer Jaime Palinchak, Certified Nutrition Health Coach & Private Chef

Makes approximately 12


  • 6 large Medjool dates, pitted

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons water

  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 3/4 cup oats

  • 3/4 cup peanut butter

  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds

  • 2 tablespoons cacao nibs


  1. In a large bowl, stir together the oats, chia seeds, and cacao nibs. Set aside.

  2. Add dates and water to the bowl of a food processor and process until the dates begin to break down and form a paste.

  3. Add in maple syrup, vanilla, and peanut butter. Process again until it starts to look like a wet cookie dough and ingredients are combined.

  4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix together. (I use wet hands to mix!)

  5. Form dough into 1" balls and store in an airtight container in the fridge. (Last up to 7 days in refrigerator.)
