Raw Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls

  Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Balls   Energy Balls. Bliss Balls. Truffles. Whatever name you give to those deliciously tiny balls of goodness, these raw chocolate peanut butter balls will knock your socks off. In a good way of course.

These are hands down my favourite combination of snack ball, they are perfect for when you’re searching around for a sneaky hit of chocolate or raiding the cupboard with a spoon in search of the peanut butter (please tell me I’m not the only one that does this). The only difference with these is that you’re getting a big hit of nutrients along with it. You don’t even need any fancy appliances to make them up, just chuck everything in a bowl and mix! Super quick and super easy!

I love to make up a batch and keep them in a glass jar in the fridge. They compliment cups of tea, make a delicious after-dinner treat and even a perfect midnight snack for any ravenous breast-feeding mamas. Enjoy!
