Gluten-free and Vegan No-bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls. Easy to make and delicious on a hot summer day!
Ingredients
  • 1 cup all-natural (no sugar added) peanut butter, or other favorite nut butter (I used sunflower seed butter)
  • 3 TBSP honey
  • 1½ TBSP coconut flour
  • 1 TBSP flax meal (optional)
  • 1 TBSP cacao nibs (optional)
  • 1 tsp fine sea salt
  • ¾ cup favorite chocolate chips
  • 1 TBSP coconut oil
Instructions
  1. Mix peanut butter with honey in medium mixing bowl until smooth.
  2. Add in coconut flour and mix well. If mixture is still a bit runny, add more flour until thickens into cookie dough-like texture.
  3. If using flax meal or cacao nibs, add in and stir to combine evenly. These just up the nutrition value of the final product!
  4. Roll "dough" into small balls and place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Mine made 16.
  5. In a small saucepan, melt chocolate chips and coconut oil over low heat.
  6. When chocolate is completely melted, take off heat.
  7. Using a spoon, place ball in chocolate and coat evenly with chocolate, then place ball back on parchment. Repeat until all balls are coated.
  8. Place baking sheet in freezer and freeze 10 to 12 minutes or until chocolate has hardened.
  9. Serve cold. Enjoy!
