Vegan Cacao and Peanut Butter Energy Balls

These energy balls are so gooey and delicious, I am currently obsessed with them! If you’re looking for an easy on-the-go snack to power you through the day, these are a great option!

They take just ten minutes to make and only need six simple ingredients.

Ingredients

100g pitted dates, about 6 large dates

45g roasted peanuts, about 1/3 cup

40g smooth peanut butter, about 2 heaped tablespoons

8g porridge oats, about 1 1/2 tablespoons

7g cacao powder, about 2 teaspoons

Method

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

Next add in the oats, peanut butter, salt and raspberries and pulse again until they are well combined. Finally add in your roasted peanuts and pulse until they reach the consistency you desire – I like to have them a little chunky for a nice crunch.

Take a tablespoon of the mixture and roll into a ball. Continue doing this until the mixture has finished.

Place the rolled balls into the fridge for around 1 hour before serving. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
