Cocoa peanut butter balls

These chocolate energy balls have a rich fudge-like texture because of the dates. You can change up the nut butter, and nuts to suit your preference. Or use tahini, and sesame/ pumpkin seeds if you have a nut allergy.



6 Medjool dates pitted

45g peanuts

2 heaping tablespoons of peanut butter

1 1/2 tablespoons of oats

2 teaspoons of good quality cocoa powder



Place the dates in a food processor and pulse until they form a smooth paste

Add in the oats, nut butter, cocoa powder, and peanuts

Pulse again until they are really well combined

Take a tablespoon of the mixture and roll in to a ball

Continue doing this until you have used all of the mixture

Place the rolled balls in to the fridge to set for an hour, and store in an air tight container


Enjoy with a cup of your favourite HotTea Mama tea!
