Peanut chocolate fudge bliss balls

I love chocolate and peanut butter individually but when combined they make my tastebuds work in overdrive. If I could, I’d eat peanut butter chocolate ice-cream every night. But I think my waistline (and wedding dress) would hate me.

So these peanut chocolate fudge bliss balls are an excellent alternative. They are nutty, moist and a perfect 3.30itis snack. I don’t know about you but every time it hits 3.30pm at work I need my afternoon tea and snack to get through the last part of the day.

  • ½ cup almonds
  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 8 dates
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon natural 100% peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoon natural Greek yoghurt
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup (or honey – add a little more if you like it extra sweet).
  • Put the almonds and oats in the food processor until finely crushed
  • Add the dates and process until fine
  • Add the cocoa until well incorporated
  • Add the Greek yoghurt, peanut butter and maple syrup and process until the entire mixture comes together like a dough
  • Roll out the mixture into balls. You should get approximately 12 balls the size of golf balls.
  • Put the balls in the fridge to firm.

Whether you need a snack at 3.30pm, a 6am boost before a gym session or 2am lift for shift workers, these will meet any craving. Friendly warning, they are not very sweet. If you want that extra bit of sweetness, add more maple syrup or honey. If you want them more chocolaty add more cocoa or roll them in cocoa at the end.

Fun farewell yoghurt fact: “Yoghurt can be made by any mammal that produces milk, be it goat, sheep, water buffalo, yak or camel!”*
