Peanut Butter Balls

This is for all of my peanut butter lovers out there! Here is a lighter, healthier version of the classic Peanut Butter Ball without powdered sugar and butter that the classic recipe normally calls for. Betcha can’t eat just one. 😉

Peanut Butter Balls

PEANUT BUTTER BALLS

(Gluten free, vegan)

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup natural smooth peanut butter, stir well
  • 4 tbsp pure maple syrup or honey
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 3/4 cup of gluten free crispy cereal (I use Nature’s Path Crispy Rice Cereal)
  • 3/4 cup Enjoy Life chocolate chips
  • 1/2 tbsp coconut oil

DIRECTIONS

In a large bowl, mix together the peanut butter (make sure the peanut butter is well stirred) and maple syrup/honey until it thickens. Stir in the coconut flour until combined. If it seems dry add a touch more of maple syrup/honey, or if it’s too runny add a tad more coconut flour.  Stir in the crispy rice cereal and shape into small balls. I made about 16.

In a small pot, add in the chocolate chips and coconut oil and stir frequently over low heat until melted. Remove from heat.

With a fork, dip the balls into the melted chocolate, shake off any excess chocolate and place them onto a plate or cutting board lined with parchment paper.

Place balls in the freezer for around 8-10 minutes and enjoy!!!
