- 20 Dates, pitted
- ⅓ Cup Pure Maple Syrup
- ¼ Cup Cacao Powder

Soak the dates in water for 5 hours, then drain, discarding the water.
In your Short Cup, add the soaked dates, pure maple syrup, vanilla extract, and cacao powder. Blend until completely smooth.
Scoop the mixture into a bowl and stir in the oats, sliced almonds, chia seeds, and mini chocolate chips. Stir until the mixture is completely even. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Use a cookie scoop to portion the mixture out onto the cookie sheet. Freeze uncovered for 30 minutes, then roll into balls.
