These energy balls are quick snacks that can do double-duty as nutritious treats to satisfy a sweet tooth with cacao nibs, peanuts and dates! (Photo: Jackie Newgent)



  • 6 oz Dates, Dried Pitted
  • 1 cup Peanuts, virginia, oil-roasted, with salt
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Cacao Nibs


1 Add the dates to a food processor; cover and blend until a paste forms. Add the peanuts and pulse until finely crumbled and mixture is able to be formed into a sticky ball. Add the cacao nibs and pulse until evenly combined.
2 Firmly press mixture into a cookie scoop or 1-tablespoon measuring spoon, then remove to form 24 buttons. Alternatively, roll the mixture into balls.
3 Store in the freezer. Enjoy chilled.
