These little delicious mouth watering peanut butter chocolate balls will change your life! Super simple to make and heavenly tasting naughty things will satisfy ANY craving!
Because who doesn't love peanut butter - DUH?!
During my India trip I used to go to this little hidden cafe in the town of Rishikesh up North. The cafe was overlooking the sacred river Ganga and I used to spend hours journaling and studying there, while indulging on one particular dessert - peanut butter chocolate balls. Never before or after have I eaten something so delicious. So I decided that I must try to recreate this secret ~ sacred treat myself. And VOILÀ!
Makes around 10 - 14 balls
Preparation time: 15 min
Resting time: 30 minutes in the fridge
1 1/2 cup of cornflakes
1 1/2 cup of plain cookies (I used vegan + GF ones)
4 tbsl peanut butter
3 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp of maple syrup (or more depending on how sweet your cookies are)
Water as needed
For the Chocolate:
1/2 cup Vegan dark chocolate (at least 75% cocoa content)
1 tsp Coconut oil
LET's DO THIS:
THE BALLS: Blend the cornflakes and cookies into small crumbs (not too powdery if you want to have them some crunch). Melt the peanut-butter and coconut oil to a liquid form, add vanilla extract and combine with a mixer/ blender until smooth.
Pour the peanut butter mixture over the cornflakes and biscuits, and mix well. You should get a dough like consistency that will allow you to form little balls. If needed add little water.
THE CHOCOLATE: Melt together - don’t let it get too hot and runny! You want a nice thick chocolatey consistency so you can evenly coat the peanut butter balls. The chocolate should be a medium thickness. When ready, get the balls out of the freezer and coat them with the chocolate. Set flat and sprinkle over with little turmeric, shredded coconut or freeze-dried fruit. Done 👌🏼
Refrigerate for up to one week or freeze. Enjoy!
*No cornflakes or cookies? You can use leftover soft bread - the balls will be equally as good just without the crunch!
COCOA itself is a natural antioxidant offering nutrients such as magnesium, iron and potassium that helps to produce energy, strengthen muscles, bones and teeth, as well as aid good blood circulation. It’s also a complete protein – meaning it has a full of amino acids.
Moreover, it is also high in phosphorus, zinc, copper, and manganese. Raw cocoa also contains flavonoids (natural chemical compounds) known to lower blood pressure and increase the good type of cholesterol (HDL) in blood.
