Ingredients

  • 235g Pitted Dates or any other dried fruit
  • 115g Peanuts or any other nuts
  • 110g Chunky Peanut butter or any other nut butter
  • 40g Almonds or any other nuts
  • 50g Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 5 Egg Whites
  • 1/4 tsp of Salt
  • 60g Vanilla Protein Powder or 60g Oats with 1tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 100g Dark Chocolate, melted

Method

  • STEP 1
    Add to your food processor: Dates, Peanuts, Peanut Butter, Almonds, Cocoa Powder, Salt & Protein Powder. Blend until it resembles breadcrumbs.
  • STEP 2
    Continue to blend on a medium speed whilst slowly adding the egg whites. Blend until a dough is formed. Remove the blender lid & blade.
  • STEP 3
    With wet hands grab a dessert spoon amount of mix and roll into balls on your palms. Keep wetting your hands every 4-5 balls to avoid sticking. Place on a baking tray or baking parchment. Put in the fridge for 20-30 minutes
  • STEP 4
    Break up the dark chocolate into a jug and put into the microwave on full power for 30 seconds, remove and stir for 1 minute, repeat until melted. Remove the balls from the fridge. Pour or drizzle the melted chocolate over the balls and leave to set.
