  • 1 ¼ x cup roasted salted nuts (we chose peanuts and cashews // or sub dessicated coconut)
  • cups packed, pitted Medjool dates (sticky and fresh!* // measured after pitting // 1 cup contains ~19 dates)
  • pinch sea salt (optional)


  • Add nuts to a food processor and pulse several times to loosely “chop.” You aren’t looking for a meal — just chopped. Set aside on a plate or in a shallow bowl.
  • To the food processor, add pitted dates and sea salt and process until small bits remain or a ball forms. Scoop out ~16 even bites (you can use this scoop!) and roll them into balls with your hands. They will be a little sticky — that’s okay!
  • Begin rolling date bites into the nut mixture to coat, pressing down gently to encourage sticking. Continue until each date bite is thoroughly coated with nuts. (Optional: To coat even more thoroughly, you can pulse any remaining nuts into a loose meal in the food processor and then roll date bites through again to coat — the finer texture will cause more nuts to stick).
  • Enjoy as is or transfer to the refrigerator to chill for 1 hour. Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks or the freezer up to 1 month (sometimes longer). If frozen, let thaw slightly before enjoying.
