Ingredients for the Date And Peanut Butter Energy Balls:
Dates: An excellent natural sweetener, high in fiber and antioxidants.
Raisins: Rich in vitamins C, K, E, B6, and Iron, and are also a good source of potassium.
Peanuts & peanut butter: Packed with healthy fats and a fantastic source of protein, vitamins, and minerals.
These Date & Peanut Butter energy balls are great because they are:

- 100g dates
- 50g raisins (OR 50g more dates!)
- 100g peanuts
- 50g peanut butter
- Blend the dates, raisins, and peanuts together. If the dates are too hard, pre-soak them for 10-20 minutes, then drain very well.
- Add the peanut butter, and blend again. The mixture should be thick enough to form into balls without being too sticky.
- Once everything is well combined, roll into small balls. You can enjoy the energy balls right away, or place them in the fridge for a little bit, to get more firm.
