Original Recipe found here


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup (packed full) pitted dates
  • 1/4 cup raisins (optional)
  • 1–5 teaspoons of water, as needed


  1. In a food processor, add the oats, cashews (or hemp seeds), and cinnamon. Process until oats and cashews are a coarse flour.
  2. Add the dates to the food processor. Process the ingredients together.
  3. Add the vanilla and pulse together. If the dough is not sticking together, add 1-5 teaspoons of water (start with 1 and add more as needed). Continue to process until the dough starts to form a ball or at least sticks together when pinched.
  4. Spread the dough out and sprinkle the raisins on top. Fold the dough together until the raisins are well incorporated into the mixture.
  5. Roll the dough into 12-15 small balls. Place the bites into a large glass container. Enjoy as is, or transfer to the fridge or the freezer to allow it to set.

Variations: Omit the raisins for a cinnamon oatmeal bite. Swap the 1/2 cup dates with 1/2 cup raisins. Use 1/2 cup hemp seeds in place of the 1/2 cup of cashews.
