  1. Add dates to a food processor and pulse until only small bits remain – it will likely clump into a ball. If any big pieces remain, use a knife or spatula to push them down, then turn the machine back on to pulse.
  2. Add peanut butter and oats and pulse a few more times until incorporated, stirring and scraping down sides as needed. If you prefer denser bars, add more oats.
  3. Transfer to a parchment-lined 8×8 dish and press down until flat, OR scoop out 1 Tbsp amounts and roll into a ball and place on a baking sheet or plate. Transfer to freezer to set.
  4. If making bars, slice into 8-10 bars and store in the fridge or freezer to keep fresh. They can be a little flimsy at room temp, so be gentle with how you stack them.
