  • 200g pitted Medjool dates
  • 100g oats, gluten free if necessary
  • 80g pecans, toasted/roasted if desired
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp blackstrap molasses
  • 30g Pulsin Vanilla Whey Protein
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon



Blend together all ingredients in your food processor to form a thick dough that is soft and holds together when you press it between your fingers. You can add a touch of water if necessary to make the dough a little softer. The result will vary depending on how soft your dates are!


Roll the mixture into 15 - 16 balls. Store in the fridge for up to one week in a seal tight container.


You could also coat these in chocolate for more of a truffle vibe!
