No Bake Nut & Oat Balls

Good morning folks!

Today is going to be a good day, I just know it. I have my morning off work, so I plan on going to the gym, and catching up on my favorite show. I only work two hours this afternoon, and then I will go into town to get some shopping done. Like I said, this day sounds sweet.

Lately I have been trying out all sorts of healthy granola bar, and snack recipes for Dan. Here is the latest, and I love how it turned out. I hope you guys love it too! This recipe makes 24 and each ball has only 58 calories!

All you need is:

  • 1 cup of pitted, dried dates
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup of peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped, unsalted peanuts
  • 1 tsp coco powder
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 cups quick oats

Step one:

Process the dates and water in your food processor until it becomes a paste.

Step two:

On your stove heat up the peanut butter,date paste, chopped peanuts, coco powder and milk on medium heat. Heat it for a few minutes and continue to stir so it doesn't burn.

Step three:

Remove from heat and add the quick oats. Stir until everything is combined. Spoon out small balls and place on wax paper to cool. Enjoy one for me please :)

Have a wonderful day!
