These little peanut butter energy balls are the perfect pick me up to help you fight that afternoon slump! They’re sweet but not sickly and have a lovely, ever so slightly chewy texture. I make these a lot and keep a variety of them in my fridge/freezer all the time so that I always have some good snacks on hand. I’ve made these with peanut butter, but you can easily swap the nut butter and the nuts for another variety, like cashew or almond, if you prefer.
400g medjool dates
100g of oats
100g of roasted peanuts
2 tablespoons of peanut butter
2 tablespoons of coconut oil
Place the nuts and oats into a food processor and whizz until they form a chunky flour, then add the dates (pit them first!), coconut oil and peanut butter.
Blend everything up until a sticky mix form.
Roll the mixture into balls. They’re nice straight away, but they’re even nicer when they’ve set a little in the fridge so try to give them twenty minutes or so before eating.
These will last a few weeks, but if you want them to last longer/you don’t eat them all at once, like I do, then they freeze really well too.
