These peanut butter energy balls are super easy to make, healthy, and delicious (obviously the most important factor). You can make them in big batches and keep them in the freezer as an easy grab-and-go snack. Though they likely won't last long because they're that good.
You will need a food processor or a powerful blender for this recipe. I recommend choosing organic and natural ingredients. If you need recommendations on brands or what to buy, don't hesitate to reach out!
1 cup almonds
1/2 cup steel cut oats
1/2 cup medjool dates
1 Tbsp pure maple syrup
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 Tbsp natural peanut butter
1 tsp chia seeds
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 Tbsp raisins
- Add the almonds and steel cut oats to the food processor and process until a flour forms. Be careful not to make it too fine, as a butter may start to form.
- Add the dates to the food processor and process until they are chopped up.
- Next, add the maple syrup, vanilla, peanut butter, chia seeds and sea salt and turn on again until everything is mixed up and a dough forms. If the mixture is too dry, add water slowly until it becomes more sticky (shouldn't need more than a tablespoon).
- Transfer the dough to a mixing bowl and mix in raisins.
- Roll dough into bit-sized balls and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Place in the freezer for 20 minutes so they become firm and enjoy!
Optional additions: coconut flakes, chocolate chips, dried cranberries, goji berries
You can keep the energy balls in a resealable bag or container in the fridge and they will stay fresh for 1-2 months. Or keep them in the fridge for 1-2 weeks. I hope you enjoy them!
