  1. Combine garbanzo beans, peanut butter, dates, and collagen peptides in food processor. Process for 5-10 minutes (depending on the size and strength of your blender), occasionally stopping to scrape down sides. Stop when everything is one smooth mixture.

  2. Refrigerate peanut butter filling for 30 minutes to make for easier ball rolling.

  3. Roll into 20 balls (approximately 2 tablespoons each). I like to use a small cookie scoop (about two tablespoons) to portion the dough, then roll it between my palms to smooth it out.

  4. I recommend storing in the refrigerator.  Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

You can substitute a different protein powder if desired, or leave out entirely. If you're substituting a different powder, the consistency of the energy balls may change.
