|10 min||0 min||20|
|1/4 cup||Peanut butter, natural|
|1 1/4 cup pitted||Dates (chopped)|
|1/2 cup||Dried cherries|
|1 cup||Peanuts, roasted|
|2 tbsp||Flaxseed meal (ground)|
1. Add your peanut butter, dates, dried cherries, peanuts and flaxseed meal to your food processor and process until all of your ingredients are smooth, sticky and start to form a large dough ball (you should be able to remove some and roll it easily into balls).
2. Roll into 20 balls, set on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze for an hour before transferring to a freezer bag or container.
3. Store in the freezer or fridge and pull a few out at a time for a quick snack.
You can replace peanuts and peanut butter for any nut or nut butter of choice: almond, cashew, sunflower seed, tahini etc.
Ground chia works in place of flax seeds.
Though peanuts have always been thought of as a high-sugar legume that is prone to mould, peanuts can actually have a place in a healthy diet. They are a rich source of protein, healthy fats and fiber, and also contain plenty of potassium, phosphorous, magnesium, and B vitamins.
Be sure to look for unsalted organic peanuts and peanut butter.
