Check out the full recipe for these divine peanut butter brownie balls below.

    Tip: If using fresh medjoul dates you will only need a tiny amount of agave syrup, or none at all.

    Tip: Try swapping out the almonds for hazelnuts, or the peanut butter for almond butter!


    • 200g Almonds
    • 2 tbsp Cacao Powder
    • 200g Pitted Dates
    • 3 tbsp Peanut Butter
    • 1-2 tbsp Agave Syrup



    Place the pitted dates in a bowl of hot water for 5-10 minutes - this helps soften them.


    Remove the dates from the water and mix the dates and peanut butter together until the mixture resembles a paste.


    Add your almonds to a food processor and blitz until they are as smooth or chunky as you wish.


    Add the almonds and cacao powder to the peanut butter and dates and mix well.


    Add 1-2 tablespoons of agave syrup, depending on how sweet and moist you want them to be, and mix again.


    The mixture should be a little sticky and roll easily into balls. Using your hand, shape the mixture into tablespoon sized balls.


    For best results store in an airtight container in the fridge and eat within a week – if they last that long!
