No-Bake Chocolate-Peanut Butter Bites

By: Jamie Webber

If there’s one flavor combination I’d prefer for a sweet treat, it’s chocolate and peanut butter. It’s a classic favorite so I’ve created a couple healthier versions, like the Mini Peanut Butter Cups.  Since it’s been a while since I’ve been in the kitchen with another chocolate peanut butter recipe, I figured it’s time. These balls are the perfect dessert to bring to a party so you don’t keep too many in your own fridge! I like to enjoy one every so often when I need something sweet, but it’s important to not go crazy and eat too many at once. That’y why I like to make them, have one, and bring the rest in for my co-workers!

  1. Combine peanut butter, coconut flour, maple syrup and coconut oil in a bowl and mix until well combined.

  2. Make quarter-sized balls with the peanut butter dough and place on a plate. Sprinkle with sea salt.

  3. Add balls in the fridge to harden for 30 minutes.
  4. To make chocolate coating, melt the chocolate over low heat in a sauce pan. Add to another bowl.
  5. Dip the peanut butter balls into the chocolate, and roll them around until they are fully covered.

  7. Add to freezer for 30 minutes, then take leftover melted chocolate and drizzle on the balls.
  8. Place back in fridge for 20 minutes then serve. Keeps in the fridge for 5 days.
