You guys, how is it already August?! I feel like this summer is flying by and I’d like it to slow its roll a little bit.

Today, it’s snacktime, my friends!

Oats, dates, walnuts, coconut. That’s all you need for this ah-mazingly sweet, filling and nutrient dense snack.These super cute little oatmeal walnut energy bites are one of my all-time favorite snacks. When I make them, I have to practice some serious self-control and not eat them all in one sitting. For real, I hide them from myself in the back of the fridge. That’s discipline, folks.

I love making raw desserts and snacks with the use of dates. They are perfectly sweet and full of good nutrition to give you sustainable energy. They work like a charm when it comes to making healthier raw desserts that are free of refined sugar. It’s pretty sneaky because they basically taste like candy. Score.

These little guys are soft, slightly sticky, and actually taste a bit like oatmeal cookie dough. I think we can all get behind a cookie dough addiction.

Happy snacking!


Oatmeal Walnut Energy Bites

Yield: Makes 12-14 balls


  • 3/4 cup GF whole oats
  • 3/4 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 cups pitted medjool dates


  1. Remove the pits from your dates and soak them in a bowl of warm water for about 5-10 minutes to soften.
  2. Drain the dates and add them to a food processor along with the walnuts, coconut and oats. Blend until the mixture forms a dough-like consistency. You will be able to tell when it comes together.
  3. Using your fingers, take about 2 tbsp worth of the mixture and roll into a ball. Continue with the rest of the mixture.


    1. I’m not sure on the calorie count for these, but I’m sure you could plug all of the ingredients into MyFitnessPal and find out 🙂 It makes about 14 balls.
