Prep Time 20 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 14 cookies


  • 1/2 cup about 8 soft, pitted Medjool dates (I used regular dates)
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seed butter with no added sugar (I used SunButter)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 ounces dark chocolate chips (I used Lily's Dark Chocolate Chips because they're vegan & sweetened with Stevia)


  • In a food processor with an S blade, puree the dates until a ball forms.
  • Add the sunflower seed butter, shredded coconut, vanilla extract, and salt, and puree again.
  • Fold in the dark chocolate chips.
  • Use a 3/4-ounce (size 40) scoop or your hands to form the dough into about 14 balls, and refrigerate to set. Store the cookies in the refrigerator.
  • *To make this a Vegan recipe, use non-dairy chocolate chips. Also, to bump up the protein content, try adding some vanilla protein powder to this recipe.
  • Makes about 14 cookies.
