  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 large very ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup pitted dates
  • 3/4 cup uncooked oats gluten free, if needed, more if needed
  • ¼ cup ground flax seed or flax meal
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips vegan, if needed


  • Combine all of the ingredients except the chocolate chips in a food processor and process until it forms a paste, scraping down the sides as needed. If you find the mixture is too soft to form into balls, you can add more oats.
  • Stir in the chips.
  • Using about a tablespoon of the mixture at a time, use your hands to roll into balls.
  • Store in the refrigerator until ready to eat.
