Ingredients

Chocolate part:
½ cup walnuts
toasted and chopped
¼ cup prunes
*
2 tablespoons peanut butter
creamy and natural
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup chocolate chips (semi-sweet)
*
Peanut butter part
½ cup peanut butter
creamy and natural
¼ cup chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
drained and finely ground in a food processor
½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

In a medium bowl, add the walnuts, prunes, peanut butter, cocoa powder, vanilla extract and chocolate chips.

Mix until well combined. Set aside.

In another bowl, stir together the peanut butter, chickpea paste, and vanilla extract until mix well.

To form a ball, you need to put together about ½ tablespoon white batter, ½ tablespoon dark batter, and another ½ tablespoon white batter, which makes the chocolate part in the centre.

Repeat until all the batters are used up.

Note: The size of the ball can be varied by your preference. The energy balls can be kept in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to at least 1 week.

These no-bake energy balls were just delicious and packed with goodness, it's hard not to love these treats. Almost all the ingredients are healthy and natural, except the small amount of sugar from chocolate chips, all the sweetness is in the dried prunes.

The combination of flavor and texture were both excellent, creamy, chocolatey, peanut butter-y, and nutty. There was nothing that I did not love, I ate them for breakfast, snack... or whenever I felt hungry, but didn't feel like to cook anything :)
