A sweet, chocolate snack that is quick and easy to make. Satisfying and fewer calories than an equivalent chocolate bar.
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
Add to your food processor: Dates, Peanuts, Peanut Butter, Almonds, Cocoa Powder, Salt & Protein Powder. Blend until it resembles breadcrumbs.
Continue to blend on a medium speed whilst slowly adding the egg whites. Blend until a dough is formed. Remove the blender lid & blade.
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
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.
