Healthy Peanut Butter Balls
Happy New Year's Eve! This recipe is great and will be sure to be a fan-favorite at any New Year's gathering!
Peanut Butter Balls:
3/4 cup natural peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
1/4 cup any Dickey Farms honey (or maple syrup)
1/3 cup coconut flour
Pinch of sea salt
4oz dark chocolate (about 1 heaping cup of dark chocolate chips)
Coarse sea salt, for topping (optional)
In a medium bowl, mix together peanut butter, honey, coconut flour, and salt. Stir until a dough forms. You can add another tbsp of coconut flour to the mixture, if needed to get the right texture for rolling.
Scoop the dough by tbsps and roll the dough between your hands to make balls. Place the balls on a pan lined with parchment paper, then put in the freezer to set until firm, about 20 minutes.
When the peanut butter balls feel firm to the touch, melt the chocolate. (You can use a double boiler to do this on the stove, or the microwave if you prefer in 30 second intervals.)
Remove the peanut butter balls from the freezer, and dip each one into the melted chocolate mixture, coating each one thoroughly. Top the chocolate with a sprinkle of coarse sea salt, if desired. Return the chocolate-covered balls to the parchment paper. The chocolate should start to harden right away, but you can place them in the fridge or freezer to set completely.
Serve cold, from the fridge to keep the chocolate firm. These should keep well in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
