Chocolate peanut butter bites by Tanu (Christmas 2019)


  • 8 medjool dates, stoned, or 150g raisins
  • 50g pecan nuts, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder, plus extra for dusting
  • 1 tablespoon date syrup


  1. Line a plate or baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  2. Put all the ingredients in a food processor and whizz until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
  3. Turn out the mixture into a bowl and roll it into 12 equal-sized balls. Place on the lined tray or plate and chill in the fridge overnight.
  4. To serve, place a little sifted cocoa powder on a plate and carefully roll each ball until coated. Shake off any excess cocoa powder before serving.
