Are you looking for the perfect pick-me-up recipe to have in the arvo when you need a little energy boost? This is the recipe you need! Packed full of protein and healthy fats, this is a favourite of mine to have in the fridge as a go-to healthy recipe. I highly suggest making these at the start of the week and keep them in an airtight container all week to snack on.
PEANUT ENERGY BALLS
1 cup almonds
1 cup pitted dates, soaked in warm water
1/2 cup @simplynutsaus natural crunchy Peanut Butter
1/3 cup cacao powder
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp raw honey
1/2 cup crushed peanuts (for garnish)
Soak your pitted dates in warm water for at least 20 minutes prior. Drain and set aside the date water (you will need it later).
Add your almonds into a food processor and process until a meal consistency.
Add all remaining ingredients into the food processor along with 3-4 tbsp of the date water. Process until the mixture clumps together in a large sticky ball (you may need to add more date water)
Roll 1 tbsp amount of mixture into balls and then coat in the crushed peanuts. Set in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before eating. Enjoy!
