With a hit of plant protein and healthy fats in every bite, these tasty little balls by @livingwellwithsav are completely guilt-free! They’re made using a base of salted caramel peanut butter (you can also use regular peanut butter) and naturally sweet medjool dates, which are an excellent source of phytonutrients and minerals including selenium, potassium, calcium and magnesium.
To give this snack a nutrient boost, she’s added Amazonia Raw Protein Paleo Fermented in heavenly Salted Caramel flavour. Sprouted and fermented for optimal digestibility, this blend contains up to 50% RDI Iron plus certified organic pea protein, Sacha Inchi, spirulina, spinach, quinoa, seeds and more.
Make a batch of these balls at the beginning of each week and you have your morning/afternoon sweet treat sorted! If you give this recipe a go, remember to tag us (@amazoniaco) on Instagram – we love seeing your creations!
Salted Caramel & Peanut Protein Bites
Snacks & Dessert
14 medjool dates, pitted
1/4 cup Ceres Salted Caramel Peanut Butter
1 tbsp coconut sugar
2 tbsp coconut oil
5 tbsp water
2 tsp Raw Protein Paleo Fermented Salted Caramel
1 block Lindt 85% Dark Chocolate
If your dates still have the pits in them, remove them.
In a blender or processor place the medjool dates, peanut butter, coconut sugar, coconut oil, water, and Raw Protein Paleo Fermented Salted Caramel and blend until smooth and creamy.
Get silicone moulds and place the salted caramel mixture into them about 3/4 full.
In a microwave-safe bowl break up the block of chocolate and microwave it in 30-second increments, stirring each time until melted.
Spoon the chocolate over the salted caramel mixture until the mould is full. Repeat until all of them are covered.
Top with peanuts and put into the freezer for 4 hours or overnight until set.
