Recipe: Powerballs (Two Versions)

Pin It

These powerballs make a great little snack or treat. There are two versions…

1. The Chocolate/Peanut Version (pictured):

I recently bought my first bar of unsweetened chocolate (100% cacao)…and to steal vocabulary from my 5-year-old, it tasted disgusting! However, in some magical way the combination of ingredients in this recipe below make the cacao taste like “regular” chocolate. I have to thank a 100 Days of Real Food reader for introducing me to a version of this recipe. I would have never thought to put these items together and now we can’t stop eating them!

Chocolate Peanut-Butter Powerballs Recipe
 
Ingredients
  • ¾ cup tree nuts (I used pecans)
  • ¾ cup dried pitted dates
  • 2 tablespoons of peanut butter (an all natural PB is recommended - the only ingredient necessary is crushed peanuts)
  • 3 tablespoons 100% cacao (unsweetened chocolate bar – Ghiradelli makes one that I found at 2 different grocery stores in the baking section)

Instructions
  1. Combine all ingredients into a food processor and blend.
  2. Form into balls (makes about 10 - 12 depending on size) and serve immediately or keep refrigerated.
  3. For a slightly different variation without peanut butter check out the chocolate torte recipe.

 

2. The Peanut/Honey Version:

This recipe is from a friend of a friend and you can get creative with adding extras.
