    About this recipe: There are lots of different versions of energy balls or natural snacks out there but I prefer to make my own. That way I can avoid processed sugars but I don't have to suppress my cravings for peanut butter and chocolate! These bites are egg free, dairy free and gluten free if you use gluten free oats. Enjoy!

    Ingredients
    Serves: 12 

    • 340g honey
    • 120ml coconut oil
    • 45g cocoa powder
    • 160g porridge oats
    • 270g no added sugar natural peanut butter
    • 75g desiccated coconut
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Method
    Prep:10min  ›  Extra time:20min cooling  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Combine honey, coconut oil and cocoa powder in a small pot and bring to the boil; cook for 2 minutes, then remove from heat. Stir in oats, peanut butter, coconut and vanilla extract; mix until peanut butter has melted.
    2. Drop the mixture by spoonful onto greaseproof paper. Set aside to cool until firm, about 20 minutes.

    Tip

    Try maple syrup in place of honey for a slightly different taste or a vegan version.

    Shape into balls

    You can drop the mixture by the spoonful onto greaseproof paper; let them cool slightly, then roll into balls using the palm of your hand if you like.
