Best snack ever, especially when you are craving something nutty and chocolatey. Basically most of my cravings involve chocolate and some sort of nut butter and this way I get to feel like I am cheating and eating something not so healthy but it isn’t bad for you! All three ingredients are wholesome and clean. That’s a win in my book!
I am sure there are other recipes like this out there and I have seen where you just use a nut butter and dates but my husband didn’t like how sticky they were so I tried rolling them in oats, which were ok but then the idea hit me to roll them in cacao powder. Best decision I ever made besides marrying my prince charming! If you ever get a craving for peanut butter cups and get sad when you look at their ingredient list whip up a batch of these and your craving will be satisfied. Trust me, these will not disappoint.
Nut Butter and Date Balls
1 cup pitted and roughly chopped medjool dates
1/2 cup nut butter (almond, cashew, peanut or whatever you like)
2 Tbsp cacoa powder
Process in a food processor or high speed blender the dates and nut butter and refrigerate for 1 hour. Form into balls and roll in cacoa powder. Pop back in fridge in an airtight container at least 1 hour and enjoy! Will store in fridge up to a week.
