Need an on-the-go energy boost but don't have a lot of time to spare? Check out this simple recipe from Deliciously Ella.

These Peanut butter and cacao energy balls from Delicouslyella.com are quick and easy to make- perfect for life on the go! They’re sweet but not sickly and have a lovely, ever so slightly chewy texture. They take 5 minutes to make so you really have no excuses!

 

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, cacao powder and peanuts and pulse again until they are really well combined.

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.
