Recipe by Brit's Bites.


  • 1 cup Natural Delights Pitted Medjool Dates
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup shredded coconut (½ cup for forming balls, ½ cup for coating balls)
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1-2 tablespoons water


  1. In a food processor, pulse the Natural Delights Pitted Medjool Dates until they become a sticky paste. You may need to scrape down the sides occasionally.
  2. Add the rolled oats, frozen blueberries, cinnamon, coconut and chia seeds to the food processor. Pulse until well combined.
  3. If the mixture seems dry and crumbly, add water, one tablespoon at a time, until it holds together well and can be easily rolled into balls.
  4. Using a spoon or your hands, scoop out a heaping tablespoon of the mixture and roll it into a ball. You can adjust the size depending on your preference.
  5. Place the shredded coconut in a shallow dish. Gently roll each date ball in the coconut flakes to coat it completely. Press the shredded coconut gently to adhere.
  6. Place the date balls on a plate lined with parchment paper and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or until firm. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.

*While Medjool dates are high in natural sugars, they are low on the glycemic index thanks to a balanced amount of soluble fiber. The complex carbohydrates found in Medjool dates are digested at a slower rate, making them a source of dietary fiber and releasing energy to the body over a longer period of time.
