  • Servings: Makes 12 balls

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup all-natural salted peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon dark chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil

How to make this recipe

  1. Line a plate with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, combine the peanut butter and honey, stirring vigorously with a wooden spoon for about 30 seconds, or until the mixture begins to stiffen. Add the coconut flour and mix until a soft dough forms. (Use an electric beater for this step if it's too difficult to mix by hand.)

  2. Roll the dough into 12 balls, set them on the parchment paper-lined plate and refrigerate for 1 hour until set.

  3. In a small pan, melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil over medium heat. Stir gently to combine, then drizzle the mixture over the chilled peanut butter balls. Store them in a covered container in the refrigerator.
