Peanut Butter Brownie Balls

I was craving chocolate so I made these peanut butter brownie balls. The nutrient-dense ingredients included in this recipe are oats, almond flour, peanut butter, cocoa powder, and cocoa nibs. Who doesn’t love a chocolate peanut butter combo? I know I do! 

Furthermore, I love keeping a batch of these in the fridge as an easy grab-and-go snack. This helps me honor my hunger and cravings between meals. There’s nothing wrong with needing a snack as a bridge between meals. Snacks can very much be a part of a healthy eating pattern.

Peanut Butter Brownie Balls 

Makes 12 

INGREDIENTS 

  • 3 dates
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • ¼ cup almond flour 
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 1-2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa nibs (or chocolate chips)
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Soak dates in a bowl of hot water for 3 minutes. Transfer dates to a high-speed blender or food processor with 1 tablespoon of the warm water. Blend until dates are chopped to bite-sized pieces.
  2. Add remaining ingredients to the same blender with the dates: oats, almond flour, peanut butter, honey, cocoa powder, chia seeds, and cocoa nibs. Blend/pulse for 1-2 minutes until ingredients are well combined. 
  3. Transfer dough to a bowl, scraping down the sides of the blender with a rubber spatula. Scoop 1 tablespoon of dough at a time into your hands. Roll into a ball, about the size of a ping pong ball. Repeat until all dough is used.
