These Peppermint Date Energy Balls are my new favorite snack.
These came to be because I loooooove the Luna white chocolate peppermint protein bars. So obviously I tried to recreate the flavors from that bar. And because who doesn’t love a chocolate peppermint combo around the holidays??
These energy balls are super easy to make, but you will need a food processor or a solid blender to get the right consistency of the walnuts.
What I love about these energy balls is that you can throw a couple of them in your bag for the day as a snack, so when a sweet craving comes along, or you feel hanger starting to creep up on you, peppermint balls to the rescue!
Because the base these are made out of walnuts, dates and cacao powder, they have protein, fiber and fat- the key 3 nutrients to help satiate hunger. Yep, yep, gimme all that.
Let me know what you think of these yummy bites!!
Thanks for reading!
