Peanut balls recipe

Almonds and peanuts are both high-protein foods, making these a protein-rich snack. Protein is made up of amino acids that are the building blocks of your brain’s networks and can nourish your brain.

Serving Size:

Makes 20



  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 3 tbs smooth peanut butter
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 2 tbs rice syrup


Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and shape into balls.

Roll the shaped balls in extra coconut and enjoy.


  • If balls are not holding together well, add more rice syrup as required.
  • Instead of rolling balls in coconut, you can roll them in chopped peanuts.
