Chocolate peanut butter bliss balls are healthy little energy bites, and a great grab-and-go snack for busy days. They take just 15 minutes to make, and are filled with protein and fibre to keep you going all day long. Not to mention they’re absolutely delicious!

Ingredients
  

  • 50 g oats (½ cup)
  • 50 g sunflower seeds (⅓ cup)
  • 200 g pitted dates* (~1.5 cups)
  • 125 g peanut butter (½ cup)
  • 3.5 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract optional
  • pinch sea salt optional

To coat

  • 25 g crushed peanuts
  • 5 g cacao powder
  • pinch sea salt

Instructions
 

  • Add the oats and the sunflower seeds to your food processor. Pulse until the oats have turned to flour, and the seeds are in large crumbs.
  • Add the dates, peanut butter, cocoa powder,  and vanilla and sea salt if you’re using them.
  • Process the ingredients again until a dough begins to form, adding a drop of water at a time if it isn’t coming together. It will form a crumbly texture first, before coming together around the blade.
  • Scoop the dough out of the blender. Using your hands, roll the dough into 15 balls, roughly 30g each (about the size of a golf ball).
  • To coat, mix together the crushed peanuts, cacao powder and sea salt, then roll the balls in the mixture to finish.

Notes

*I like to use dried and pitted dates. They are far cheaper and can be bought in big bags which keep in the cupboard for ages. Make sure you soak them for half an hour in hot water beforehand, which makes them lovely and moist for this recipe. If you want to use medjool dates, these don't need to soak.
