Cacao + Peanut Butter Protein Balls
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Makes 10 Balls
  • 9 Medjool dates
  • 2 heaped Tbsp natural peanut butter
  • ½ cup roasted unsalted peanuts (or any other type of nuts will do)
  • ⅓ cup oats
  • ½ cup shredded coconut
  • 2 Tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 scoop vanilla pea protein powder
  • Pinch of himalayan salt
  1. Remove pits from dates and add them to a bowl. Pour hot water over them to soften for approximately 5 mins.
  2. Once the dates are soft, pour out all the water and place into a food processor or high speed blender along with the peanut butter and salt then blend until smooth.
  3. Add in all remaining ingredients and blend together. Don't over blend as you still want some chunky bits in the mixture. If you are having trouble blending (I had a little) you can always stop and mix it together with a spoon then blend again.
  4. Scoop out into a bowl and roll small amounts in your hands into balls and continue with the remaining mix.
  5. Store in an air tight container in fridge and enjoy!
