Who’s drooling? I have to be honest, I really struggled taking photos of these without wanting to stuff my face.

These are a great healthy protein filled snack to take with you on the go.

I mean just look at how good they look.

Smooth on the outside and crunchy on the inside from using my favourite crunchy peanut butter. You could always use smooth peanut butter if you prefer.

For those that may have a peanut allergy, you’re in luck as you can use almond butter instead.

This recipe will make 15 balls but don’t worry you don’t have to eat these all at once, they will store in the fridge or freezer.

  • 330 g crunchy peanut butter (roughly 9 heaped tbsp)
  • 90 g ground almonds
  • 7 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 pinch salt


  • In a large mixing bowl add the peanut butter, ground almonds, maple syrup and salt. Whisk until it’s well mixed together
  • With a spoon, scoop up a small amount and roll into a rough ball, no need to be perfect as we will roll them again later which will make them smooth
  • Place each ball on a tray and place in the freezer for 30 minutes
  • Take the balls outs the freezer and roll again in your hands until smooth
  • They are now ready to enjoy


These will last in the fridge in a sealed container for up to a week. You could also freeze them if you wanted to store for longer.
