Recipe type: snack, fika
Serves: 14-16
  • 1 cup gluten-free oats
  • 1 cup Medjool dates, pitted (about 10)
  • ½ cup unsweetened, shredded coconut + extra for rolling
  • ½ cup raw cashews
  • 2 tablespoons virgin coconut oil
  • (1 tablespoon water)
  • For rolling in:
  • Unsweetened shredded coconut
  • Himalayan sea salt
  1. Add oats through coconut oil to a food processor. Pulse or blend until it forms coarse crumbles. You may have to stop the food processor and scrape down sides with a spatula a few times. You will know the mixture is ready when you can squeeze the crumbles together and they stick. (If it seems to dry you could add a tablespoon of water, and additional water 1 teaspoon at a time. How much water depends on how moist the dates were).
  2. Use clean hands to scoop out about 2 tablespoon-sized portions. Press into balls and then roll in the coconut and/or sea salt if desired; if coconut and sea salt isn't sticking well, drizzle balls with a little water first.
  3. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks or freeze.
