This recipe is based on Cookie Bites by Erika over at Good Clean Food. With my first taste of those nutty-chocolaty bites, I knew I’d be making them at home – and making them again with a few minor twists. Enter peanut milk and peanut meal.

Cocoa PB Balls [Vegan]




  • 1/2 cup roasted peanuts
  • 1/2 cup fresh peanut milk
  • 1/2 cup fresh peanut meal
  • 1 cup mixed grains
  • 2 tablespoons. cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup hulled hemp seeds
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed meal
  • 1/2 cup sweetened cacao nibs
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch sea salt


  1. In a food processor, process the mixed grain (or oats) until broken down into small pieces.  Remove from the processor and place in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Put the peanuts, peanut milk and peanut meal in the food processor and process into a nice, thick slurry.  Add the cocoa powder, chia seeds, maple syrup, cinnamon, salt and vanilla and process to combine.  Remove from the processor bowl and add to the grain mixture.
  3. Stir in the hemp seeds, coconut and flaxseed meal and mix until all the ingredients are moistened and thoroughly combined.  Add more peanut milk if the mixture seems dry.  Store in an airtight container for a few hours or overnight.
  4. Form the mixture into walnut-sized balls.  Keep in the refrigerator.

I was into my 30s before I began running and working out, but I was still missing something: diet.  The animal products I was consuming were undoing the benefits of all of that physical activity.  Today my body runs on a plant-based, low-fat, low sugar diet that keeps me healthy and strong. I’m sharing – via An Unrefined Vegan - what I've learned by offering simple, delicious and nutritious recipes that nurture body, soul and conscience.
