  • 11 each dates, Medjool
  • 1 cup apples, dried
  • 1/2 cup oats, dry
  • 1/2 cup pieces or chips walnuts
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon


  • Add the oats, walnuts, cinnamon, and freeze-dried apples* to a food processor, and pulse until the texture turns to a medium-coarse meal. Dump the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl.
  • Remove the pits from the dates, and add them to the food processor. Run the processor for about two minutes, until the dates clump together in a single sticky ball. Place the ball in the mixing bowl with the remaining ingredients.
  • Coat the date ball with the dry meal, then use your hands to continue kneading the dry ingredients into the sticky dates, until well combined.
  • Roll the mixture into balls. We like them just under an inch in diameter. Store in an airtight container at room temperature up to a week, or refrigerate or freeze for up to a month.


*When choosing dried apples, we recommend the freeze-dried variety for the best texture. Freeze-dried apples are often sold as "apple chips" and are crispy, rather than soft.
