If you know me well, you will know that I am a big fan of peanut butter (or any nut butter for that matter)! I just can’t get enough. Luckily, we don’t have any nut allergies in our house, so we can all enjoy it.
I like to use peanut butter in baking as much as I can. So when you are trying to cut out as much refined-sugar as possible, you start to get a bit creative with your baking. Making raw treats is much quicker and easier too. Plus, all of the goodness from the ingredients is kept in there.
Being able to whip up some truffles or energy balls in a food processor is quick, so I’ve got no excuse for reaching for a regular chocolate bar. Even if you’re not on a strict diet like I am, these are still a treat that are good for you. So why not give them a go? They are fudgey, chocolatey balls of deliciousness, that are like little brownie balls or truffles.
Raw Peanut Butter and Chocolate Truffles
Ingredients to make about 20 small truffles:
- 200g Peanut Butter
- 100g Rolled Oats
- 200g Pitted Medjool Dates
- 4 tbsp Cacao Powder
- 70ml Maple Syrup
What to do:
- Put all of the ingredients in a food processor (or strong blender). Mix up until a sticky picture comes together.
- Take the mixture out and roll into one large ball. Then keep dividing the mixture up and rolling into smaller balls, as large or as small as you would like.
- Place in an airtight container and pop them in the fridge to firm up a little. They will keep in the fridge for about 5 days.
Yum! Do you think that you will give them a go? They are a winner with everyone in my family. If you want to know some of my other refined sugar-free recipes, you can check them out here.
