Chocolate Peanut Energy Balls

I'm always looking for something quick that I can whip up to eat with a wee cup of tea in the afternoon - so I created a few little recipes that include naturally sweet fruits like dates and combined then with some of my favourite flavours. Here's one of my favourites - chocolate peanut flavour (with added protein powder, but you can leave that out if you wish).

Ingredients​ (yields 20)

12 Dates (pitted)

1 tablespoon raw cacao powder

1 tablespoon Pulsin Pea Protein

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon crunchy peanut butter

Desiccated coconut to decorate


Combine all ingredients (apart from the coconut) in a food processor and blitz until smooth. Roll into little balls about the size of a malteser and then roll in the desiccated coconut to finish. Store these in the fridge.
