Raw Peanut Butter and Date balls

These peanut butter and date balls make for a fabulous energy snack and are gluten free and packed with nutritious seeds. They are also so quick and easy to make and the beauty of a no-baking recipe is that you can taste as you go and create the perfect flavour balance. You can try adding cocoa nibs and experiment with other nut butters as well. Enjoy!
