Raw Date and Peanut Energy Bites

p1090058

The afternoon sugar slump is an evil thing don’t you agree? As a baker I find it so hard to keep my fingers out of the freshly baked cookie jar when a craving hits, but thankfully I have these delicious energy bites to keep me on the straight and narrow.

They are filled with nothing but goodness – walnuts, dates, flaxseed, coconut, rolled oats and peanut butter. The perfect healthy treat and packed full with protein and fibre which means they will give you tons of energy to power through the afternoon.

Perhaps my favourite thing about these though is that they are one indulgent pleasure I can never feel guilty about. All ingredients can be found in the most basic store cupboards too so unless you need to top anything up there is no special shopping required. I have an industrial size peanut butter tub in my cupboard so I’m never caught shy when I need to make these. They are super-duper easy to make and even if you’re in a rush at just 10 minutes there is always time to whip up a quick batch. I make mine on a Sunday night and store them in my fridge. If I’m careful they last all week….just about.

Makes 24

Prep time: 10 minutes


400g pitted dates

100g walnuts

100g rolled oats

100g desiccated coconut

50g flax seeds (optional)

1tbsp peanut butter

½ tbsp honey

50g pistachios (for decoration)


This is a no-nonsense recipe so throw all ingredients (except the pistachios) into the food processor and blitz until all combined.

Crush or blitz the pistachios separately and pour into a bowl ready for decoration.

Take small amounts and roll into bites about 1 inch in diameter. Pop them into the bowl of pistachios and roll them around until suitable coated. This gives them a nice crunch but the coating is totally optional, so if you can’t be bothered just leave the bites naked.

Sit them on a lined baking sheet and leave in the fridge for 30 minutes to an hour until firm.

Happy snacking!
