Healthy Peanut Butter Balls

healthy peanut butter ballsPeanut butter balls were a Christmas staple in our household! In fact, they still are! My mom and I would spend our evenings mixing, rolling, dipping and snacking away!

I think that maybe why I'm so obsessed with peanut butter...

However! I wanted to make a healthier version of these little bites to share with friends over the holidays and I did just that. They are SO good! No butter, no white sugar... all goodness! Plus... I added in a little extra fibre LOL. Because we all can use a little extra fibre (but really the crunch adds a delish spin)! Here's how to make them and WOW your guests:

natural peanut butter balls


Ingredients:
1 cup natural smooth peanut butter
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons coconut flour
*optional: 1/2 cup Smartbran cereal (OKAY, you can also use Rice Krispies or something that tickles your fancy, but the buds add such a lovely crunch)
1 dark chocolate bar

Directions:
1. Mix together peanut butter and maple syrup with a spoon. Mix it well.
2. Add in coconut flour 1 tablespoon at a time. Honestly, you may need to add more or less. You want to be able to work with your dough and not have it stick to your hands. Add more if needed.
3. Add in cereal and mix again.
4. Chill dough for like 5 minutes to harden up a bit
5. Roll into balls and place on a parchment-lined baking tray. Then put the tray in the freezer until they are hard (15 mins).

Once they are hardened:
1. Melt chocolate bar on the stovetop on low heat
2. Take out the tray from freezer and (you may need to reshape your balls here now that they are harder), and dip them into the chocolate one at a time.
3. Place back on the baking tray, top with chopped nuts if you wish
4. Put back in the freezer to harden

SO SIMPLE! SO DELISH!
