Combine coconut oil, nut butter, vanilla, dates, salt, and half of the oats in a food processor or Vitamix. Once smooth, add the remaining ingredients and pulse until the mixture is consistent, but not completely smooth. Remove mixture and roll into balls about the size of a golf ball. Plate them in the fridge and let sit at least 10 minutes. Devour. You’re welcome 🙂

Optional add-ins for varied flavor: 1 teaspoon matcha powder, 1 drop peppermint oil, 1 tablespoon cacoa nibs or dark chocolate chips, 2 tablespoons pumpkin, 1/4 lemon, 1 slice ginger, 1 teaspoon maca powder, etc. These babies are super versatile – get it?

(*if mixture is too thick to form, add a tablespoon of water or two)
