Quick and easy, these two-step healthy Peanut Butter Bliss Balls will give you the sweet treat you are missing without a sugar hit.
My partner loves to indulge in chocolate after dinner and sometimes eats the whole block! I beg him to buy the fruit and nut blocks because I don’t like them, but sometimes he comes home with something I find hard to resist. That’s when I pull these Healthy Peanut Butter Bliss Balls out of the fridge.
Chock full of almonds and oats, they are filling to eat, so you only need one or two. I make them teaspoon size, so the mix goes a long way.
The other secret ingredient is Lakanto Golden Malt Syrup which is a sweetener made using Monk Fruit.
Teamed with a herbal tea (I’m trialling Nerada Organics Echinacea & Lemon at the moment), I have a treat for my tastebuds that doesn’t make me regret it afterwards. Of course, they would also be perfect as a healthy snack for kids, but you might want to make a double batch.
I’ve added a few twists to a Lakanto recipe to create these Peanut Butter Bliss Balls.
Double bonus if you are vegan, gluten-free, keto or low carb – these balls are just what you need!
Healthy Peanut Butter Bliss Balls
Makes 15 balls
- ½ cup rolled oats
- ½ cup roasted cashews
- 1 cup desiccated coconut, plus extra for rolling the balls in afterwards
- 3 tablespoons Lakanto Golden Malt Syrup
- 3 tablespoons peanut butter*
- 1 teaspoon vanilla bean essence
*You can substitute other nut butter if you prefer. Remember that the runnier the butter, the less you need to use; otherwise, your balls will be too soft.
- Add all ingredients into the bowl of a food processer and blitz until the mixture starts to come together. You don’t want to mix it too much as it’s good to have texture in the balls.
- Roll teaspoon-sized balls of the mixture into lovely round shapes, and then roll again in the extra coconut.
You can eat them straight away or store them in the fridge for about five days (If they last that long).
I hope you love these balls as much as I do. Please share your photos on my Facebook page. I’d love to see them.
