  • 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
