Peanut Butter Coconut Power Balls

Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Makes 16


1 cup quick oats
¾ cup unsweetened shredded coconut (more for rolling)
½ cup smooth peanut butter (natural, unsalted)
½ cup peanuts (dry-roasted, unsalted)
¼ cup packed pitted Medjool dates
¾ teaspoon cinnamon
¾ teaspoon fine sea salt
3 tablespoons coconut oil
3 tablespoons maple syrup


1. Mix dry ingredients: To a food processor, add quick oats, coconut, peanut butter, peanuts, dates, cinnamon, and salt. Pulse until the texture resembles coarse sand (no large pieces of date should be visible).

2. Add wet ingredients: Add coconut oil and maple syrup to the food processor. Pulse until mixture comes together in a ball.

3. Form balls: Scoop 16 balls of dough and use your hands to compact and roll them until smooth. Roll each ball in more shredded coconut, until covered. Place in an airtight container and refrigerate until firm.

Recipe Notes: Store power balls in an airtight container for up to 5 days. For longer storage, freeze in a freezer bag (let defrost in the fridge overnight).
