  • The background music took over my soul and made me feel so good in such a great mood hahahahahaha reminded me of the 70s or something and I loved it.

  • Mmmmmm… Coconut flavour taste sooo good!! I like your coconut protein bars soo much!! That taste soo delicious and crewy dish! Great dish!! See u anytime!!

  • I really enjoyed this video, Hannah! It was really entertaining and fun to watch:)
    Thanks for sharing! I’m so glad I subbed to you!
    Keep the brilliant content coming!
    It’s very inspiring to fellow vegan vloggers like myself when we see people upload regular high quality content:)
    Best wishes, Marie xx

  • These look amazing! Thanks Hannah! And, if anyone is looking for other great recipes, I highly encourage you to check out Feasting on Fruit’s You Tube channel or website! She does awesome recipes, too!

  • Is it possible to use Quacker’s Instant Oats for this?
    Just wanna to use that instead coz I bought one that’s too big for my actual consumption

  • If you cook a potato and then refrigerate, when the potato is cold, has the starch changed to an unusable or difficult to digest form?

  • Can I replace the coconut oil with olive oil? I am a student and I love this recipe, but the budget does not really follow with this ingredient x’) Thanks!

  • What kind of protein powder you suggest? Because it makes a word of difference whether you use neutral flavor or vanilla or others.

  • I think I’ve only ever followed youtube recipes like 3 times in my life, and this was one of them. I love these! I was looking for a snack between meals and found myself often eating chocolate bars or cookies from the cafes nearby, and I wanted to make something that satisfied my sweet tooth without feeling guilty, and these fit that perfectly. I was skeptical about the dates because I’ve never liked eating them, but they create just the right sweetness balance here. Looking forward to trying your other stuff!

  • THESE ARE SERIOUSLY SO GOOD! I’ve made similar ones with oats, almond butter, dates, and cocoa powder and blend it all in a food processor..ughhhhh so good I could eat them all day errday but it’s so easy to over eat them since they are high in calories(at least it’s healthy)

  • Ok, oats and flaxseeds contain healthy fats ideed. But the idea that coconut is healthy is a myth that should not be spread anymore. Saturated fats are problematic even if they come from plants. But I know it is hard to replace in a recepie like this. Its best to just bring oats, fruit and nuts soaked in water in a plastic container with a lit along with a spoon if you are on the go. At home, this is no problem anyway. Just avoid any kind of oil actually.

  • According to my calculations the total calories would be 3786 kcal and the macros: 508g carbs (53%), 156g fat (37%), 90g protein (10%).
    Im curious how many balls did he make, that way we can calculate the calories and macros for each ball based on the info i provided above.

  • Just made these! Put mine in a baking dish and cut bars, then stuck them in the freezer. I added mini chocolate chips. My kids and husband go crazy over these.

  • I probably missed it but definitely mix your more liquid ingredients together first otherwise you’ll be squishing forever to get the peanut butter incorporated if you dont have a processor. If you have RA thats not fun.

  • Just made these! Had no dates though, so I used half a banana + spoonful of wowbutter, and used sunflower seeds instead of nuts. NOMZ

  • How can oats possibly be good for you? When you consume it… it breaks down into sugarsGlucose and Fructose… so your going to have a sugar spike… then a sugar low then cravings for more sugar so ultimately you’ll end up a fat git.

  • Sooo… I may be a little too precise about it, but I often find it hard to eyeball from a video: how much is a scoop? Something like a heaping tablespoon?

  • HANNAH! I hope you read this, this is so weird, I was on facebook and saw that commercial on a weight loss “miracle” product, and they used YOUR WEIGHT LOSS VIDEOS!???

  • they look good, but i don’t eat gluten.. all grains have gluten, without the gluten, it cannot germinate and sprout. If oats, corn, rice or amaranth didn’t have gluten we wouldn’t have grains. A botanical impossibility.. Gluten from grains is what causes all auto-immune diseases. i use 3 cups nuts, (pecans, walnuts, almonds) with 1 cup dates, 1/4 cacao powder, and coconut. Cranberries are great.. my recipe is one to try.. Almond butter is a nice addition, just cut back on the majool dates..

  • I made these today!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!! I feel really good about these because they’re pretty much clean, and they’re super filling. I got 10 out of the batch, ate 3 after lunch and was stuffed. I’ve been dying to make cookie dough; I tried a vegan recipe and it was NASTY. I’m quite pleased with these, though. They’re fantastic! ��

  • Just made it and i also added psilluim hulks, some nuts, cinnamon and i didnt add penut butter, but it turned out really good, thank you!!!

  • I have IBD and u have changed my life bc you approach nutrition with evidence and so many examples of how easy it is to have a plant based diet! I was never convinced i could ever do this until I watched your vids…and I have heard about plant based diets for over a decade lol! Thank you immensely for taking the time!

  • I just made these but with gluten free steel cut oats and they turned out awesome! Just wanted to say thanks for the recipe it tastes good and unhealthy but it’s not too bad for me which is always great! Thanks for all the recipes you share❤️❤️❤️

  • My date purée has turned out very runny. I’m hoping if I add a tradition oat mix plus peanut butter powder they will still turn out okay. Otherwise I will try and soak more dates but with hardly any water to add to the original amount.

  • Hey Hannah! You’ve probably heard, but just in case, I was just on FB and some page called “macys blazer store”??? Is using your weight loss vids and before and afters and calling it hers, saying she lost 70lbs in 2 months drinking some BS. Thought you should know. Lots of people on there are defending you though and saying “no that’s high carb Hannah!” Lol. So that’s super cool!

  • Just saw your amazing recipe….my daughter is allergic to peanuts aka peanut butter…Wht can we use instead…pls will be very grateful ��…thnx a lot

  • I’ll tell you why it’s cheaper just to buy sugar cubes they do give you energy plus diabetes two and cancer cells thrive on glucose the more sugar faster the tumor grows oatmeal and weed are carbohydrates lots of sugarGoogle it

  • Could you make a video on autoimmune disorders (asthma, rhinitis) and diets to manage them? Also, I wonder why they have been on the rise the last few decades?

  • Thanks for sharing Hannah!! I always crave cookie dough but I haven’t gotten to have it since I’ve been vegan!! Thanks so much for sharing I can’t wait to try these!

  • Interesting. I question stevia and zero calorie anything. I’ve had bad experience with some stevias (not the real leaf). Pay attention to how you feel. Otherwise, interesting…

  • oh Hannah.. these are soooo GOOD! I just tried them and rolled some in kakao powder, some in shredded coconut and some in grounded hazelnuts. They look and taste awesome!:) love your videos, greetings from germany!

  • vegsource claims that all plant fats should be avoided since they can cause a lot of diseases as well as the animal fats.. is this true? I mean nuts have a lot of important nutrients for us vegans

  • Thank you for this great recipe. I’ll make this.
    May I use chia seeds instead of flax seeds? If yes, what quantity? Thank you so much.

  • I wonder if one could sell a product with the argument that it:
    has an easy to calculate amount of calories.
    lets say 10 balls are enough for the average human eat 9 or 8 to loose weight.
    And it contains everything you need.

  • How big are your protein powder scoops? Like every brand has different sizes… Actually, some brands might even have different portion scoops for their different formulas �� Just grams or mls could really help…

  • I just wanna say that you’ve helped me a lot and I appreciate that so much. Also you and Derek are my favorite couple ever honestly you two give me hope.

  • Hi Sasha, I found your channel few days ago and I love your healthy recipes with ingredients almost everybody have at home or they are not hard to find or pay. I will try some of them for sure. Thanks again. Greetings

  • Hi Gil,
    just wanted to mention that I started to collect and comment the references in your videos and spread the word with some hardcore science-based nutrition facts.
    Keep up the great work, it’s really inspiring!!

  • I’ve been living in Mexico City for a while and one kind of popular snack here is… grasshoppers. Reading about the nutrition of insects, they seem to be pretty good for health. What do you think about this topic?

  • You need to add bananas to make a more creamy ice cream.

    If you use 90 or 99% dark chocolate (very little fat zero sugar or dairy) and you can make date sandwiches. For those that dark chocolate is too bitter.

    Super high in calories so use as a sauce to drizzle over. Tahini and honey mixed together about 50/50. Try not to eat by the spoonful. Use as sauce.

  • Thank you for this! I do think my children will try it and even OMG LIKE IT! It is so hard to find healthy food they will accept, let alone, that they can bring to school. Snack foods like this are perfect. Can’t wait to try making these.

  • I hope people don’t actually think of this as super healthy since your recipe itself is around 3200 calories which is more than what a very active man can consume in a day without getting into a surplus. I don’t think people will just eat 1 or 2 balls (if this recipe makes 12 balls then each one will have around 260 calories) so its better to find a lower-calorie alternative without including stuff like peanut butter and coconut oil and instead just use guar gum for mixing and powdered peanut butter with more protein. Also excess of flax seeds isn’t really needed as whole oats usually have enough fibre:)

  • DUDE you’re my fave youtuber…. love all of your content and its really shaping who i am and who i want to be…. learning about vegan, minimalism, recipes, whatever… THANK YOU!!! <3

  • Personal tip from implementing the video, add the peanut butter in multiple smaller portions else might get lumps while making the oats and almond balls.

  • In Australia Oats are considered part of gluten family as its cross contaminated so its big No for someone like me on strict gluten free diet �� i feel need some safe snack ideas

  • These were delicious! Thanks for sharing this and all of your recipes, much appreciated. I excluded salt and added walnuts when I added the chips, perfection.

  • I missed the 2 T of water, so I added 2 T of pumpkin butter. They were still good! And I used prunes instead of dates because I didn’t have dates!

  • I like to add walnuts to almost anything…oatmeal, fruit, toast with peanut butter… I keep some in a small hand grinder so they are always ready to go.

  • I Love oatmeal energy balls but the issue I have is that at the start of the vid u insinuated that you created this recipe. This recipe has been circulating health books and the web for years. Also u stated u were looking for a creative way to make energy balls. But this is not creative or new as I have been doing this for years. If looking at creative recipes maybe look at other ingredients for example pomegranate syrup, Brazil and cachew but butter, puff quiona or semolina, etc…..

  • Healthy loving this for my family and friends and enemies and children and grandchildren ������ lots of love from London Lawrence Simon Anne Marie ❤️������

  • Wooooow, I was buying these so called energy balls before, which is expensive!!! thank you so much for sharing this simple recipe. I am making a batch on my day off and they are the best after work, healthy snack that I enjoy on my way back home:-))))

  • Let me say it like that: Only the peanut butter has 630 calories or even more, so how is your plan to lose weight with those? Even though the oats are having 400 calories

  • Have you ever thought about using Ethos Heaven for vegan products? They have antioxidants, super nutrients and everything else you could need for a healthy body. They do products for pets and products to prevent and fight common diseases!

  • I made these the second I got out of work tonight. they are AMAZING! I have been trying more and more of your recipes lately and im not kidding that I have loved every one of them. Thats very rare for me so thank you so much for all that you do:)

  • Hey Hannah, I was just thinking about how you were going “no poo” by using apple cider vinegar. I was wondering, have you ever tried the root of a yucca plant? I’ve heard that it can be used for washing the hair, body, and laundry, but I’ve never tried it before. It grows in the Southwest so I bet you could find some! I’d love to watch a video of you letting us know if it works! http://www.motherearthnews.com/natural-health/yucca-soap-yucca-shampoo-zmaz81mjzraw

  • Amazing recipe. Few things I found:
    1. There is a huge difference with the end result when using standard rolled oats vs quick oats. My suggestion: don’t bother with rolled oats, the texture is way too chunky, and the flavour doesn’t get all the way through like with quick oats.
    2. Depending on the dates you have when making the date paste, this ratio may end up not being sweet enough, I had to add a dash of maple syrup to the actual energy ball recipe to bring the sweetness up a tad, but I made my date paste with dates that are not extremely sweet.
    With those things in mind, it’s an amazing, easy to make, healthy recipe. I have these every day for breakfast with my coffee now ❤️
    Thanks for making the video.

  • Well I want to know if he said Place everything in a food processor concerning the first step do you add the water with the dates? If anybody knows the answer I really appreciate it if you respond with a yes or no. Thanks

  • Pistachio are so expensive when you understood you only have half the weight to eat because of the shell and raw ones are extremely expensive and not so easy to find, they are very different and much better than the the hard roasted ones…

  • Looks good, I have a question as you use a lot of oatmeal and it all looks delicious. Does it affect your teeth health at all and if so in what way? Thanks and keep sharing. I fluctuate from vegetarian to Mediterranean style nutrition with lots of good water. Blessings to the journey and good health for all

  • I just made these. SOOO GOOOOOD!!! ���������� only I used almond milk instead of water and vanilla cause I had no vanilla. And added a dash of nutmeg. Love you Hannah! Easiest bestest yummers. So happy ��

  • You have the best recipes �� I’m so glad I bought your ebooks. I just made your lentil loaf recipe from your blog and it’s THE BEST

  • more lazy option but tastes as good, put a whole peanut and pistachio instead inside:):) tastes the same less work.
    Thats the snack i eat, but i eat it with apple. for some reason, it upgrades the taste like 500%

  • I really wish you could make an appearance on the Dr. Oz show or the Ellen show. You and your recipes need to be seen my MILLIONS!
