  • Author: Amanda @ Running with Spoons
  • Total Time: 15 mins
  • Yield: 12 bites 1x


  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup pitted dates*
  • 3 Tbsp. almond butter (can sub with another nut butter)
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 1 scoop of your favourite chocolate or vanilla protein powder
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips


  1. Add oats to food processor or blender and pulse until they reach the consistency of flour.
  2. Add dates, almond butter, and honey, and continue processing until well combined. You will probably need to scrape down the sides of your processor and add a few teaspoons of water to get things moving. Add water sparingly, as adding too much will make the dough too sticky.
  3. Add cocoa and protein powder and continue processing until fully combined.
  4. Transfer dough to a small bowl and add chocolate chips, mixing by hand until well incorporated. Use a tablespoon to divide dough into 12 equal portions, rolling each portion into a ball. Place bites in fridge for ~20 minutes to allow them to set.**


* If your dates are a little dry, soak them in a bowl of water a few hours prior to making. Doing so will make them easier to process.
** Bites are best stored in an airtight container in the fridge. They are also wonderful when frozen.
