Peanut Butter Energy Balls

Peanut Butter Energy Balls
These are delicious fudgy snacks that provide a hit of protein from the peanuts and B vitamins for energy from the oats. Dark chocolate has valuable antioxidant levels to help boost the immune system. They take just minutes to make and can be stored to have on hand for weeks (if they last that long)!

Peanut Butter Energy Balls

Ingredients

100g peanut butter (preferably organic with no added salt or sugar)

60g oats (gluten-free, if required)

50g dark chocolate, chunks or chips

2 tbsp honey

How to make

  1. Place the peanut butter, oats and honey into a small saucepan and gently heat. The peanut butter will soften and make it easy to mix everything together
  2. You can either add the dark chocolate at this point and it will melt through, creating darker looking balls or you can leave the pan to cool down and stir through the chocolate so that you get chunks running throughout – either is delicious
  3. When all mixed, get tablespoon amounts of the mix and roll on the palm of your hands to make bite-sized balls. (If doing this with your child, make sure the mix is not too hot. They will love the mess and taste of it all)
  4. Store in an airtight jar or container and enjoy as a snack throughout the day

NOTES

If you're not keen on the chocolate, you could add raisins and seeds instead, which would taste great too!
