I’m a big fan of finding and creating healthy snacks so have been working on this recipe lately to make it as tasty as possible without any added sugar. I’m finally really happy with my crunchy peanut energy balls and can’t wait to share the recipe with you.

Makes 6 medium sized balls


30g cashew nuts

15g sunflower seeds

4 pitted dates (total of approx. 30g in weight)

1 tbsp coconut oil

45g organic peanut butter (I used crunchy to give the balls some nutty chunks)

5g cacao powder

15g cacao nibs – optional



Place the coconut oil and peanut butter in a bowl in the microwave for 35 seconds to melt together, then stir

Put the cashew nuts, sunflower seeds and dates in a food processor/blender and blend until they form a crumb mix

Add the crumb mix to the peanut butter and coconut oil

Then add the cacao powder and mix together with a wooden spoon

Once the ingredients form a large dough-like consistency, shape into balls with your hands

If you want added crunch, roll the balls in the cacao nibs

Then place in the fridge – you can eat them straight away but they taste better after being in the fridge for at least 1 hour
