Date Protein Balls

I love snacks. I am constantly snacking, and I need snacks that fill me up. These date protein balls are sure to satisfy. This recipe is full of protein-without sugar, grain, or dairy. They are great for a pre-workout snack. Or just a filling afternoon snack. Plus, it only takes 3 ingredients to make!

  • Prep time: 10 Minutes
  • Makes 15-20 quarter size balls

Ingredients

  • 1 c. chopped dried dates
  • 1/2 c. peanut butter (or almond butter for whole30)
  • 1/2 c. chopped roasted almonds

Medjool dates are my favorite dates to use. They basically become caramel when you put them in the food processor.  Make sure you remove the pits! Find a natural peanut butter that has no extra sugar added -OR- you can make your own! (recipe here).

Directions

  • Roast almonds
  • Remove pits and chop dates
  • Add peanut butter

Dates and Peanut Butter

  • Combine. I used a food processor. It makes it easy, with no mess.
  • Roll in Chopped almonds

You can use a food processor to chop the almonds. I rough chopped them. The variation of sizes helped to coat the date and peanut butter mixture to make it less sticky.

Keep them in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. They are so good, you will probably have them all eaten before then.

 

Enjoy!

Love, Liv
