Almond Butter and Peanut Energy Balls

Valentina

These energy bites disappear in a flash because they're so darn good (thanks mom). Puffed rice adds an unexpected pop of crunch in every chewy bite, and the peanuts give these a deliciously nutty flavor. If you like the idea of healthy peanut rice krispies - then you'll love these. Under 15 minutes to make and sure to satisfy any sweet tooth.

Shopping List
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons puffed rice (divided)
  • 3 tablespoons smooth almond butter
  • 3 large medjool dates, pitted
  • 3 tablespoons salted peanuts
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons coconut butter, softened (Note 1)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions
  1. Step 1: Place .5 cup of puffed rice, the almond butter, dates, peanuts, coconut butter, and vanilla in a food processor. Reserve the remaining 2 tablespoons of puffed rice.
  2. Step 2: Pulse the mixture until it well broken down and a thick paste is formed, about 30 seconds. Remove the lid and add in the remaining 2 tablespoons of puffed rice. Pulse a few times, just to incorporate the puffed rice into the dough (it should still have some small pieces visible).
  3. Step 3: Use your hands to roll the dough into small balls, each about the size of a ping-pong ball. Store the energy balls in the freezer.
  4. Serve: When ready to eat, take the energy balls out of the freezer and let them come to room temperature for a few minutes. They'll be perfectly chilled and chewy.

Recipe Notes

Note 1: Coconut butter is not interchangeable with coconut oil. Coconut butter is made from the meat of the coconut. Much like nut butter, you can make a homemade coconut butter by blending unsweetened shredded coconut in a food processor or high powdered blender until it becomes a super smooth butter consistency. Add a little coconut oil if needed to help break it down.
