Healthy Peanut Butter Balls
Healthy Peanut Butter Balls are a fun spin on the traditional recipe. They're made with only 5 ingredients, including peanut butter and coconut flour, and they're the perfect afternoon or post-workout snack.
Servings: 18 balls
- 1 cup peanut butter see notes
- 3/4 cup coconut flour
- 5 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1/4 cup butter softened
- 1/3 cup chocolate chips
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil
Whisk peanut butter and maple syrup together; then, add softened butter and whisk. It's ok if there are a few lumps of butter -- it'll all blend together in the end.
Next, fold in coconut flour until well combined. Use your hands to form mixture into 15-20 balls, placing them on a lined baking sheet and then placing that into the freezer.
Melt chocolate chips and coconut oil together until smooth. (I usually do this in the microwave in 30 second intervals).
Take peanut butter balls out of the freezer, then drizzle them with chocolate. Store balls in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.
*Calories are for 1 peanut butter ball and are an estimation
*Use peanut butter where the only ingredient is peanuts, or peanuts and salt. That way, the texture is correct and the recipe will turn out perfectly.
*Can use dairy free butter and dairy free chocolate chips to keep these vegan
*If mixture still seems too soft, add 1 more tablespoon coconut flour; if mixture seems too dry, add 1 more tablespoon maple syrup -- it should be easy to roll into balls
