Learn how to make low-fat Peanut Flour Energy Balls!

The recipe is super easy to make, and each piece has over 5 grams of protein and about 100 calories.

You will need 7 ingredients in total – 4 for the peanut flour energy balls, and 3 more for the chocolate cover.

You can even use coconut flakes, or cocoa powder, instead of the chocolate layer, or mix it up as I will do. Now, let’s begin! 


Ingredients for the low-fat Peanut Flour Energy Balls:

Dates – You need to soak 150g of dates in hot water for about 10-15 minutes. Drain them well, and then they will be ready to go!

Peanut flour – To get a peanut flavor, we will use peanut flour instead of peanut butter. Peanut flour is usually de-oiled, so it is low in calories and very high in protein. I was getting mine from this German brand, in compostable paper packaging.

Plant milk – You will need 200ml for this recipe – half for the peanut balls and a half for the chocolate coating (if you plan to do it!).

Coconut flour – The peanut balls will be quite sticky, so we will add about 2 spoons of coconut flour.

Carob powder (Or cocoa) – You can use cocoa or carob powder for the chocolate coating – whatever you prefer.

Chocolate – You will need just a bit (~20gr) of chocolate that needs to be melted with the cocoa/carob and the plant milk.

Peanut Butter Powder Balls

Yield: 10
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Additional Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
Low-fat Peanut Butter Powder Balls - each piece has over 5 grams of protein and about ~ 103 calories.

Ingredients

  • 150g dates (I used "mabroom")
  • 100ml plant milk
  • 100g peanut flour
  • 2 tbsp (12-14g) coconut flour
  • 20g chocolate
  • 100ml plant milk
  • 10-15g carob (or cocoa) powder

Instructions

    1. First, soak 150g of hot water dates for about 10-15 minutes. Dry them, and then blend them together with 100 milliliters of plant milk. You should get a thick caramel-like mix.
    2. Then, pour it in a bowl, and add 100g of peanut flour. Start mixing, and feel free to use your hands, as it will be much easier.
    3. The dough will be quite sticky, so add two spoons of coconut flour, and continue mixing.
    4. Once everything is well combined, begin to take a bit of the mixture, and start forming balls. Continue until you use all of the dough. You should end up with about 10 pieces.
      Put them in the freezer for a bit, and start making the chocolate sauce.
    5. You will need 100 ml of plant milk and half a spoon of carob or cocoa powder. Then, add 20 gr of dark chocolate. After it melts, add a teaspoon of the cocoa powder (or carob) and mix.
      Once it cools down, you will have a perfect consistency.
    6. Take out the peanut balls from the freezer, and start decorating them. You can use coconut, cacao powder, or as in my case, chocolate.
    7. Once you’re done, place them in the freezer for a couple of hours.
      Take them out 10-15 minutes before you want to eat them, as at first, they will be quite frozen.

Notes

You can store them in the freezer for weeks - in that way, you will always have something healthy and sweet!

I lied about the calories in the video. 😀 I miscalculated the first time. Each ball is about 103 calories if you have 10 of them.
