4 coconut-date rolls
2 tablespoons natural non-alkalized cocoa powder
3/4 cup natural peanut butter
1-3 tablespoons soy, hemp or almond milk
3/4 cup rolled oats


In a food processor, blend date rolls, cocoa, peanut butter and milk until smooth (use only enough soy milk to hold the mixture together). Knead in oats with hands or a strong spoon. Roll into 12 balls. These are easier to nibble when frozen!

These were excellent! I used 1.5 cups of dates and 1/4 cup of unsweetened coocnut instead of the coconut date rolls. They were a great treat!

These are delicious. I tried the 1.5 cups of chopped dates (because I had them on hand)and the recipe was great. Thanks for sharing.

OK, I've been eating these every day for about a year. I recently made a fantastic discovery: instead of using cocoa powder, I put in Giradelli's unsweetened chocolate bar squares. It ends up being like little tiny chocolate chips in there. This is my actual recipe which has evolved over time: 1/2 Cup oats, 1/4 Cup peanut butter/almond butter combo, 1Tbs hemp seeds, 1 tsp chia seeds, 1 coconut date roll (or about 6 little dates), 2 oz Giradelli chocolate squares (2 squares), 2 Tbs almond milk. I put all these in the food processor until it is pebbly and sticks to itself easily when you squeeze it between your fingers. I have devolved to eating it with a spoon due to laziness. I eat this whole batch every day. It keeps me feeling strong and steady, and it has a LOT of protien in it. So delicious too.

Love, love, love these!!! Like a thick, rich fudge and totally satisfies the chocoholic in me!! I don't have food processor and this is a thick, doughy mixture so I just used my hands (after washing them well of course!)

One of the top recipes ... Exceptional. I also had some made with almond butter, which I liked even more. My sister serves these frozen. Simply delicious and easy to make.

I made with this with plain medjool dates and it was delicious. I added a couple extra to make up for the lack of coconut. My kids really liked them and kept asking for more. You really do have to use the milk sparingly or you will end up having to add a lot more oats.

Very good, but next time I would eliminate or greatly reduce the amount of rolled oats, which add nothing positive to the flavor and also that much makes it too crumbly. About 1/4 c. of the oats per 4 date rolls, not 3/4 c. is a better amount. Frozen, these are really good.

Make your own CDRs for a fraction of the cost!

Coconut Date Rolls:
12 Dates
3 Tbsp hot water
Shredded coconut
1. Boil water and add 3 tbsp to shallow dish with pitted dates inside. The dates shouldn’t be totally submerged in water, just enough to soak up some water.
2. Let dates soak for about 10-15 minutes.
3. Empty dates into a food processor and run until dates are chopped.
4. Form chopped dates into a ball and roll them in shredded coconut.
5. Place in the fridge and let harden for about an hour.

How did sunflower seed butter work? We need to do this for peanut free in school

What is natural non-alkalized cocoa powder? I have Hershey's cocoa for baking, it states its only ingredient is cocoa.

I must agree with Sandi who commented that the rolled oats should be a smaller amount or actually eliminated when I make them again. I also like the idea of trying different butters such as cashew, almond or a combo. They're very tasty and certainly an excellent way to quell the need for chocolate. I'm not a chocolate person at all and I thought they were good quite good.

Love the taste! Always the best to make for the kids! There's only one problem. You can't give them to your kids to bring to school!

These were good but I would definitely reduce the oats.

This is delicious! We had it for my birthday cake! (This was my first birthday since going Nutritarian.) Left out the oats, used 1 1/2 cups dates and 1/4 cup of unsweetened coconut (instead of date rolls), used crunchy peanut butter and pressed the whole thing into a pan instead of rolling into balls. We added unsweetened coconut to the top and pressed pecans all around the edges. Cut into 1 X 1 1/2 inch pieces to serve. I must say it was great! It's like fudge! It tastes great after refrigerating it, too. This is definitely a 5 star treat!
