No-bake granola energy balls

Sweetened with dates and flavoured with peanut butter, these tasty snacks will keep you going through the whole day.


85 g dates (soak for 10 minutes in water prior to using)
2 tablespoons natural peanut butter
1 teaspoon cocoa powder
1 teaspoon honey
50 g granola


  • Add the dry granola mix to a bowl and set aside.
  • Place the soaked dates into a blender or food processor, and blend until quite smooth.
  • Add the peanut butter, cocoa powder, and honey to the food processor, and process until all ingredients are blended. If too solid to blend, add up to 2 teaspoons of water.
  • Add the dry granola mixture and pulse to break up and mix in the granola.
  • Scoop out the mixture and, using your hands, form into balls. Serve at room temperature.
  • Note: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks. You can also freeze the energy balls for up to 3 months.
