These chocolate fudge bites are so delicious that you would never guess they are made up of ‘healthy’ nutrient dense ingredients and contain no refined sugar. A batch of twelve lasts around two hours in my house, (and only two of us live here), as we genuinely cannot stay away from the fridge if we know there are some in there!

They are so easy to make and require no baking so are the perfect treat to get the kids involved with! They are gluten and dairy free but if you have no dietary requirements you could use regular oats or dairy containing chocolate and it wouldn’t affect the method or taste.

It is best to leave these to set in the freezer but once the chocolate has hardened you can transfer them to the fridge. I have noted the ‘prep time’ for these to take 65 minutes but I should mention that this includes the length of time they take to set. If you are really craving these you could eat them sooner but I personally prefer a firmer texture.

This is a pretty versatile recipe and you can change up the type of chocolate used or add extra fillings if desired. You may want to check out the chocolate orange version of these I have made which you can find here.

  • 100g 1/4 cup + 3 tbsp pitted dates
  • 100g 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp smooth peanut butter
  • 70g 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp dairy free dark chocolate
  • 50g 1/3 cup gluten free oats
  • 4 tbsp soya milk
  • 20g 3 tbsp cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil


  1. Place the dates and the milk in a blender and blitz until there are no large chunks of date left and you are left with a runny paste
  2. Add the peanut butter, oats, maple syrup and cacao powder and blend well until the ingredients are well combined and a sticky dough has formed
  3. Scrape the dough out into a bowl and place into the fridge to set for thirty minutes
  4. During this time, place the chocolate and the coconut oil into a heat proof bowl and place in a saucepan with an inch of water in the bottom. Place the saucepan over a low heat and melt the ingredients together until a smooth liquid forms
  5. Take the bowl containing the dough out of the fridge and scoop chunks out, use your palms to roll out evenly sized balls
  6. Dip each of the balls into the melted chocolate and roll around, ensuring it is completely coated before removing and placing onto a sheet of parchment paper. Repeat until all of the balls are coated
  7. Place the balls in the freezer for a minimum of thirty minutes to set
