150 Calories


  • 15 pitted dried dates*

  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter, preferably a natural one (but make sure it's not the kind that separates)

  • 14 cup crispy brown rice cereal

  • 1 teaspoon Truvía® Nectar

  • 12 tablespoon peanut powder (make sure you use one that is pure peanuts, not one with added sugar)

*Even if you buy pitted dates, make sure there are no pits inside.


  1. Using a food processor fitted with a chopping blade, chop the dates on high until finely chopped.

  2. Add the peanut butter and Truvía® Nectar. Process until well-combined.

  3. Using a rubber spatula, scrape down the sides of the food processor bowl and add the cereal.

  4. Pulse the mixture slightly, just enough so they become roughly chopped.

  5. Carefully remove the mixture using a spatula and turn it onto a sheet of waxed or parchment paper.

  6. Divide the mixture into 8 equal portions.

  7. Roll each portion into a tight ball.

  8. Using a fine sieve, sift the peanut powder onto a small plate or sheet of wax paper.

  9. Roll each ball into the powder so they are completely coated.

  10. Transfer them, one or two at a time, to the sieve and gently tap the sieve over the waxed paper to remove any excess peanut powder.

  11. Repeat until all balls are dusted with the powder.

  12. Enjoy immediately or store in a plastic container for up to 1 day.
