Place rolled oats in a high speed food processor and process on high for about a minute until you’ve formed oat flour.
Then, add dates, cashew butter, maple syrup, vanilla, and sea salt to your food processor and process on high for 1 to 2 minutes, stopping to scrape the sides until your dough is formed. It should look and feel like cookie dough.
Add in mini chocolate chips and pulse to combine.
Using a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop out dough and then roll between your palms to form balls.
Finally, sprinkle with sea salt.
*Make sure that your dates are soft. If you have old dates in your fridge, you may want to soak them for a few minutes.
Storage: store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
Freeze for later: place balls on a cookie sheet. Freeze for 1 hour and then transfer balls to an air-tight container or stasher bag and freeze for up to 3 months.
