Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Balls


Description

5 simple ingredients is all you need to create this kid-approved, healthy snack.  A perfect way to get an energy boost and satisfy that chocolate craving!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed well
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter (or other nut butter of choice)
  • 1/4 cup honey (or other liquid sweetener of choice like agave nectar or maple syrup)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

Instructions

  1. In a food processor, process the almonds until they are a fine crumb.  Add the beans and process until they are well incorporated.  Add the peanut butter, honey, and cocoa powder and process until the mixture is smooth.
  2. Roll into balls and place on a baking sheet (lined with parchment paper if you prefer).  These can be eaten right away, but I like to put them in the freezer for 10-20 minutes to help them firm up a bit first.
  3. Store in the refrigerator or freezer. Enjoy!
