Peanut Butter Cookie Balls

Share this recipe!

This soft and naturally sweet treat is perfect for a snack or dessert!

These are a just like Larabars- if you’ve ever heard of those before. They are simply made with two ingredients.

Did you know dates have a lot of nutritional benefits?

  • High in fiber
  • High in antioxidants
  • Contain other vitamins and minerals: Potassium, Iron, Copper, Vitamin B6, and Magnesium

Not to mention these balls are made with peanuts that have the highest protein content of any nut!

These are great for make-ahead snacks. Store in the fridge for up to a week (if you don’t eat them all by then!)

I actually prefer them chilled rather than at room temperature.
