Peanut Butter Balls

Updated: May 2, 2020

A quick and easy snack, no cooking required!

Nutritional information provided per serving!




Usually these types of snack recipes are advertised as or "high in protein"

which baffles me, as they usually are not high in protein (unless they use a whey powder) so don't be fooled!


They're really tasty snacks so they can be easily over eaten, which is why I calculated the nutrition info below.


I like to make them to share, otherwise they would disappear pretty quickly haha!


12 servings/balls

  • 80g oats - I used quick oats as they are smaller/more refined but large flake would work also.

  • 160g peanut butter - peanut butter like Meridian which has the oil separation works better for mixing rather than American style.

  • 2 tablespoon honey - squeezy honey works better.

  • Approximately 60g Desiccated coconut

  • Dark chocolate to drizzle over the top, I used 85% and approx. 37g - 6 small squares, possibly 3 or 4 large squares if using Lindt.

  • Small sprinkle of salt. Rock salt or Himalayan works better as they are larger granules, I probably wouldn’t use table salt, or be careful if you do 😊


Method

On a plate, pour desiccated coconut out and keep aside.

Pour oats into a large bowl.

Put peanut butter into bowl with oats and mix thoroughly.

Add honey & mix through.

Take a section of mixed ingredients into hands and roll into a ball, use a drop of milk to bind if the mix is too tough.

Roll made ball in desiccated coconut.

Set aside, continue until all balls are made

Melt dark chocolate, use a spoon to drizzle on top

Sprinkle of salt on top

Set in fridge, I ate one & allowed the rest to set over night but I am sure an hour or so will be fine 😊
