  1. In a large bowl, pour boiling water over dates and set aside for 5 minutes until cool. Use a fork to roughly mash dates and liquid to a paste.
  2. Add peanut butter to dates and stir well. Add Weet-Bix and oats, stir again until mixture comes together into a dough.

Tips

  • Dough can also be rolled into balls, rather than cut into bites, if preferred.
  • Fresh medjool dates can be used in place of dried dates, remember to remove pits.
