Salted Peanut Butter Balls (4-Ingredients)
When cravings call, this treat is just a few minutes away.
I pretty much just took the yummiest ingredients and blitzed them up into a recipe. How could it not be good?
This is a great high fibre after-school snack for kids who don't get enough roughage and need a fibre boost.
If the mixture is too dry, add another date and a bit more peanut butter until it holds together better.
How many bliss balls should you have? If you're hungry, eat something satisfying like a piece of toast with avocado. I like to think of bliss balls as more of a treat. So if you have a craving, one or two should do the trick.
Adding protein? I personally don't like to add protein powder to bliss balls because I prefer to get less processed (more whole food) protein in my diet. Read more about that here.
A note about bliss balls.
Bliss balls are SO moorish. Yes, they are made from healthier ingredients but personally, I don't think they're a go-to healthy snack. I prefer fresh fruit. It's far too easy to make a batch and eat the whole lot in a day or two. If that's you, rather make bliss balls occasionally and rely on fresh fruit for a snack.
I love using 100% peanut butter (or similar). If you look at the ingredients list, it should say peanuts as the first ingredient with nothing else added, except salt. This is how you know it's un-messed with, without lots of additives and is healthier for you.
I hope you enjoy this recipe, guys!
Big love (always),
- 80g (2.8oz) raw almonds
- 8 fresh dates, pitted
