Peanut Butter Chocolate Balls- Healthier Version

 

Peanut Butter Chocolate Balls Recipe

These Peanut Butter Chocolate Balls are so delish.  I tried them when my workout buddy, Ashely, made them for our 80 Day Obsession Refeed Day. They are the perfect balance of sweet and nutty goodness.  Just be careful because you will want to eat more than one.
Serving Size: 1 ball = 1 yellow and 1 tsp
INGREDIENTS
  • Parchment Paper
  • 1 cup all-natural creamy peanut butter (only ingredient should be peanuts)
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch (I used GMO-free)
  • 3/4 cup coconut flour
  • 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup (I used stevia)
  • 8 oz semisweet chocolate (62% cocoa or higher)
  • 2 tsp extra-virgin coconut oil, unrefined

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Combine peanut butter, cornstarch, coconut flour, and maple syrup in a medium bowl. Blend well with a spatula. The mixture will turn in to a dough.
  3. Shape dough into 24 1-inch balls. If dough is sticking to your hands, spray your hands with a little coconut oil spray. Place each ball on the prepared baking sheet and stick a toothpick in the center of each ball. Place in refrigerator for approximately 20 minutes.
  4. When peanut butter balls are ready, place chocolate and 2 tsp coconut oil in a microwavable bowl. Heat in microwave at 50% power in 30 minute increments until chocolate is just melted. Be sure not to burn the chocolate.
  5. Remove balls from the refrigerator. Hold each ball by the toothpick and dip into chocolate, swirling to coat. Use small spoon as needed to help coat each ball. Return to baking sheet and repeat until all peanut butter balls are covered.
  6. Place baking sheet back in refrigerator for at least 1 hour or until chocolate is hardened.
  7. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator or freezer.
