Description

A classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich is still one of my favorite lunches, and that combo has come together perfectly in the form of a date ball.


Scale

Ingredients

For the Peanut Butter side:

  • 1/2 cup dates
  • 1/2 cup peanuts
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter

For the Jelly side:

  • 1/2 cup dried blueberries
  • 1/2 cup dates
  • 1/2 cup almonds

Instructions

  1. Add all of the ingredients for the peanut butter side to the bowl of your food processor and blend until the nuts are well chopped and a thick “dough” starts to form, about 3-5 minutes of processing. If the ingredients are chopped into super small pieces but the dough isn’t coming together, try adding a teaspoon of water at a time (up to a tablespoon or two) to encourage everything to come together. When the ingredients are well incorporated, remove the blade from the food processor and scrape the mixture out into another bowl.

When the ingredients are well incorporated, remove the blade from the food processor and scrape the mixture out into another bowl.
  3. Take a large teaspoon of the peanut butter mixture and roll it into a ball. Take a large teaspoon of the jelly mixture and roll it into a ball. Press the two balls together and roll into one larger ball. Repeat with remaining mixture. I keep the balls in the fridge for up to a month or in the freezer much longer.
