Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Bites (Gluten Free + Vegan)

  • Author: Rachel Conners
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 18 bites 1x
  • Category: Snack


  • ¾ cup pitted Medjool dates (about 9)
  • 2 tablespoons hot water
  • ½ cup peanut butter (make sure it’s made with just peanuts and maybe salt, if you prefer)
  • ½ cup toasted peanuts
  • ½ cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder


  1. Add the dates and hot water to a food processor or high-powered blender and blend until a smooth paste or ball forms. Add the peanut butter, toasted peanuts, rolled oats, and cocoa powder.
  2. Pulse until combined – there should be small bits of peanuts and oats remaining, but not too big. Be careful not to over-process so it doesn’t get too sticky or greasy.
  3. Roll into balls, about 1-inch across each. You can also press the dough into a small pan and cut into bars if you prefer.
  4. Store in a sealed bag or small lidded container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks, or in the freezer for longer term storage.
