Cook Time 20 minutes
Course Dessert, Healthy Snack
Cuisine American
Servings 25 bites


  • Food Processor


  • 1 cup soft medjool dates (about 10)
  • ¾ cup pecans
  • ½ cup cashews
  • cup unsweetened powdered peanut butter
  • cup raw unsweetened cacao powder
  • ½ cup hemp seed
  • ¼ cup ground flax seed
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1-3 tbsp water
  • ½ cup vegan dark chocolate chips


  • Add all ingredients except water and chocolate chips to a food processor.
  • Turn on high until ingredients are fully combined. The mixture will be fairly dry and crumbly. Add water 1 TBSP at a time (the change in texture happens FAST!) and mix on high until a very doughy fudgey texture is reached. I usually end up using 1-2 TBSP but it TOTALLY varies depending on the moisture content of your dates. You will know when the texture is right .
  • Stir in chocolate chips. Roll into bite sized balls and press on additional chocolate chips (purely for cuteness).


Store in an air tight container on the counter for up to 7 days or in the fridge for up to 2 weeks (but I bet they won’t last that long! ).
