Recipe: 4 Ingredient Chocolate Peanut Butter Bliss Balls (Date Free, Gluten Free & Vegan!)

Four Ingredient Date Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Bliss Balls Recipe - one bowl, gluten free, vegan, paleo, peanut free, sugar free, healthy

Jesse and I have been together for ten years, and he's been eating food I've cooked for nine years (hello long distance relationship) - but somehow he still manages to be surprised by the creations I come up with. 

Considering the first thing I ever made for Jesse was a batch of chocolate chip cookies that he devoured in such abundance he actually made himself sick - you think he'd realise I was pretty good in the kitchen. 

But when I made these Chocolate Peanut Butter Bliss Balls (known as Snickers Balls in our house), his response went a little like this; 

Now THAT is peanut butter goodness.
YOU are amazing... do you know that?
You are amazing... do you know that?
How many can I eat?
Just... ah... er... go over there for a bit and leave me here with them...

If I was an ego maniac I'd have a big head - but luckily he also makes sure to let me know when my hair is really frizzy, when my jokes aren't funny AND when I've embarassed myself among other things - so my head is normal sized 😉

But I promise he wasn't exaggerating when he said these were good - because they are AMAAAAAAAZING. And if that's tooting your own horn, I'll toot away all day!

Simple to make and seriously delicious to eat, they've become a favourite in our house - and you'll often find them on the top shelf of a fridge in a jar or container, waiting for whenever we feel like something sweet.

It's a healthy treat that tastes seriously indulgent - and it's gluten free and vegan to boot!

So let me share the recipe with you! >>

Four Ingredient Date Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Bliss Balls Recipe - one bowl, gluten free, vegan, paleo, peanut free, sugar free, healthy

Date-Free Chocolate and Peanut Butter Bliss Balls
gluten free, vegan, high protein, clean eating friendly, grain free, refined sugar free
makes 24 small bites or 12 larger bites 

1 cup (150g) roasted and salted peanuts 
1/2 cup (75g) roasted and salted peanuts, chopped (set aside and add these last) 
1/2 cup (120g) peanut butter
2 tbsp (40g) brown rice syrup or maple syrup 
1/4 cup (20g) cocoa powder
  • Add your 1 cup of peanuts, peanut butter, brown rice syrup and cocoa powder to a food processor and process on high until your mix starts to clump together. (When you pinch a piece together it should pinch together - if it's too dry, add an extra tbsp of brown rice syrup or peanut butter to get the right consistency - or if it's too wet, add some extra peanut butter or a little bit of coconut flour)
  • Add your 1/2 cup of chopped peanuts and mix until everything is incorporated.
  • Pinch and form your mix into bite sized balls, repeating until all of your mix is used up. If your mix is too wet/dry, use the tips above!
  • Enjoy immediately or place your balls into an airtight container and place into the fridge to chill and enjoy later.
  • These bites will keeps for weeks in the fridge in an airtight container and can also be frozen to defrost and eat later.
But tell me,
What's something you're REALLY awesome at? 
Don't be shy - this isn't being vain, it's celebrating you!
I'm really good at reading. Speed reading doesn't quite cut it with me - I DEVOUR books. To the point where my friends think it's hilarious because they'll lend me a book andI'm ready to give it back the next day.
