1. Peanut Butter and Jelly Balls
Our take on the classic PB&J. These energy balls are easy to make and taste delicious. Perfect for a mid-morning snack or breakfast on the go!
½-cup creamy natural peanut butter.
1-cup instant oats.
¼-cup shredded coconut.
¼-cup ground flax seeds.
1-cup pitted dates.
½-tsp ground cinnamon.
½-tsp vanilla extract.
A pinch of crushed Himalayan pink salt
Line a baking tray with wax paper and place 12-scoops of jam on the wax paper – leave it the fridge overnight to firm.
Add the dates, flaxseed, oats, peanut butter, coconut, vanilla, and cinnamon to a food processor with a pinch of salt. Pulse until all ingredients combine, and you achieve a smooth texture. The final mixture should have a relatively sticky consistency.
Using an ice cream scoop, dish out the batter onto a work surface and spread it into a thin disk. Add the jam in the center of the dough and fold the edges around the jam. Roll the disc in your hands until it forms a ping-pong-sized ball.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 7-days.
