Healthy Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Power Bites

Print Friendly

You remember how much I loved those teeny tiny little dark chocolate and blueberry energy bites . . . and then I kicked things up a notch with those healthy, 5 min, no bake espresso brownie bites . . .

well . . .

I’d like to introduce you to my Healthy Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Power Bites.

You guys . . . these are so good its bad. But bad in the best possible way.

Chocolate and peanut butter together I mean thats a dangerously delicious combination all on its own.

The addition of peanut butter makes these bites the most incredible texture. They seriously taste like fudge. Chocolate peanut butter fudge minus the guilt. Bring. It. On! (←and you’re so very welcome)

I stuck with using almonds as the base because they have such a neutral flavour which just lets the chocolate and peanut butter flavours really shine through. Next time I think I will crush up some peanuts to roll these babies in them  and serve them truffle style.


The perfect snack.

Pre or post workout – yes.

Cure for that 330itis post lunch/pre dinner come down – oh yes

Satisfying that post dinner super intense sweet craving – yes, yes a thousand times yes!

And just look at how fudgey they are, are you kidding me?!

A decadent and indulgent guilt free treat with only 6 ingredients and ready in less than 5 mins . . . just yes!

Healthy Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Power Bites
Makes 50 super healthy, super fudgey, power packed peanut butter bites

Ingredients –

1 cup raw almonds

3/4 cup pitted dates, about 6 – I used medjool

4 Tablespoons of cocoa powder – I use Hershey’s Special Dark

2 Tablespoon of dark chocolate chips

1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Pinch of salt flakes

3 Tablespoons of peanut butter (or nut butter of choice home made, store bought or PB2* will all work, your choice baby)

Method –

1 – Place almonds in your food processor/blender and pulse until crumbly, you want there to still be a few bigger chunks to give the bites some nice texture.

2 – Add dates and pules until the mixture starts to come together.

3 – Add chocolate chips, cocoa powder and salt then pulse until combined.

4 – Add peanut butter and vanilla and pulse again until combined and the mixture is starting to come together into a loose “dough”

5 – Using your hands, roll approx 1 teaspoon of mixture unto little rounds then transfer to an airtight container (or even just a ziplock bag) and store in the fridge or freezer until required.


* In Australia PB2 can be ordered through the wonderful people at Gladiator Nutrition . Great product, great price and great deals on shipping too.

Question of the day –

What secret snack gets you through the day? Go on, do tell – its ok, really . . . we all have them

    Whoa! These look absolutely fantastic. I’m always looking for small bites of sweet treats that aren’t packed with sugar or butter. These would do the trick nicely.

    I have to have chocolate mid afternoon, to make it the rest of the day. This will absolutely do the job, thanks!

      Well, not sure I can help you there as these babies don’t last long with me either 😉

      Maybe keep some in the freezer?

      So glad you like them as much as I do 🙂

    Hi there do you have to use dates? I’m allergic?

      Hi Stephanie,

      You could probably swap out for anther dried fruit like prunes or figs, maybe even raisins/sultanas. I haven’t tried this though but I think like it could still work.

      Let me know how it turns out 🙂

    Just made these, very good! I added chocolate protein powder and just did one less tbsp of the cocoa and had some salted cashews mixed in the almonds (so omitted the salt), worked well! But it certainly doesn’t make 50 of these, and I did just tbsp balls, it came to 20 of them.

      Oh I am so glad you like them Rachel.

      I actually use a teaspoon to scoop and roll not a Tbsp, sorry for the typo.

      Enjoy 🙂

    I am really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout
    on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?
    Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog
    like this one these days.

    OMG!!! These are wonderful! I had my daughter try them, she’s 15( didn’t tell her what was in them). She loved them! She couldn’t believe they were made with dates! Now she wants to make more and give them out for Christmas! I know these will be a staple in our house!

      Hi Carol,

      I don’t provide a nutritional breakdown on my recipes, you could get this information using an app such as my fitness pal which will allow you to wither enter recipe ingredients manually yourself or you can import them from the internet.

      Hope this helps
