Peanut butter/maca bliss balls
So in my previous post I promised you that my peanut butter obsession is not over yet and as you can tell from this recipe is really isn’t, but I am however going to take a little break from all the peanut butter recipes for a while. Haha only to move on to my new obsession – matcha!! I have been experimenting a lot with the green superfood lately and I am going to share my favorite recipes with you asap – haha some of them turned out so awful though, I added wayy too much matcha powder to some of my desserts and they ended up with a super bitter taste, such a waste!
..buut back to these super delicious peanut butter/maca bliss balls! Bliss balls are one of my favorite treats to make as you can pretty much add whatever you like and they are so easy to make! This version is made with peanut butter (duh) and maca (I use this one from Organic Burst, affiliate link), which is one of my absolute favorite superfoods – I have written a post on it here. If you do not have maca available then you can just leave it out, I think it adds a bit of a nice caramel’ish flavor, but you can easily make them without maca and still have some super tasty peanut butter bliss balls.
* Adjust amount to your liking
- Start by placing the almonds in a food processor and pulse until they are finely chopped.
- Then add in the rest of the ingredients and pulse until everything is well mixed and have turned into a sticky dough.
- Use your hands to roll the mixture into small balls, place the bliss balls in a container lined with baking paper and place it in the freezer for at least an hour so they can firm up.
- And you are done, enjoy!
Note: I prefer to store the peanut butter bliss balls in the freezer until just before serving to make them chewier.
