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!
- 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
Process the dates and water in your food processor until it becomes a paste.
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.
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 :)
