No-Bake, Peanut Butter Balls

A gluten-free, grain-free, sweet and simple treat

Prep Time: 15 min

Cook Time: 0 min

Ready in: 45 min

Yield: 28 balls


1-¼ cups, natural, peanut butter (no added fat or sugar)

½ cup, low-sugar maple syrup

1 teaspoon, vanilla extract

¼ teaspoon, salt

¼ cup, coconut flour

1-½ cups, semi-sweet chocolate chips or chopped chocolate (use vegan chocolate, if desired)

1 tablespoon, coconut oil (use refined for no coconut taste)


  1. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the peanut butter, maple syrup, vanilla and salt until combined. Stir in coconut flour. Place in freezer for 30 minutes or until dough is semi-firm for rolling.

  2. Prepare the coating. Mix together chopped chocolate and coconut oil in a small bowl that can be used to melt the chocolate and dip the balls in.

  3. Shape into 2-inch balls and place on a tray small enough to fit in your freezer. Place tray in the freezer to let them firm up more.

  4. Dip the balls one at a time into melted chocolate with a chocolate dipping utensil or spoon, allowing excess chocolate to drip off. Place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

  5. Refrigerate for up to a week or freeze for a few months. Can also be kept at room temperature for a few days (if it's not too warm).
