These Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Date Balls take just 10 minutes to make! With healthy ingredients like dates, peanut butter, oats, coconut and maple syrup, these chocolate peanut butter bon bon are irresistible!
Combine the dates, peanuts, peanut butter, coconut, oats, cocoa and maple syrup in a Cuisinart or high speed blender and pulse until mixture is evenly ground and forms a slightly sticky mixture.
Form about 10 peanut butter date balls by rolling mixture in the palm of your hands. About 1 heaping tablespoon per ball. Place in freezer for 5 minutes while you melt chocolate.
Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler (or my makeshift version: a metal bowl on top of a small saucepan with an inch of water in it.) Bring water to a boil, turn heat to low, all the while whisking the chocolate chips in the metal bowl until fully melted.
Prepare a plate to place the chocolate dipped balls. A piece of parchment paper on the place is helpful here.
Use a fork to roll each ball in the melted chocolate. Shake it a little and then place each ball on the plate. Top with a little extra chopped peanuts and some Maldon finishing salts.
Place the plate with balls in the fridge or freezer for 10 minutes so that the chocolate sets. Enjoy!
