Servings: 8 servings

Ingredients

PB Filling

  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
  • 2 1/2 Tbs powdered monkfruit *see notes
  • 2 Tbs + 1 tsp coconut flour
  • Splash of vanilla
  • Optional mix-ins such as finely chopped peanuts, dessicated coconut, or a small amount of rice crispies

Chocolate Coating

  • 1.5 oz sugar-free dark chocolate
  • 1/2 tsp coconut oil optional

Instructions

  • Stir together all ingredients (except chocolate) in a medium mixing bowl. Mix well.
  • Add enough coconut flour so it's scoopable and not too sticky. Taste and adjust, if needed. Optional: add mix-ins.
  • Scoop into balls into desired size (~1 Tbs or 1/2 Tbs) and place on a parchment lined plate. Freeze for about 15-30 minutes to firm up. Then roll balls smooth in your hands. 
  • Chop chocolate into small pieces and place in a small glass bowl.
  • Add coconut oil and microwave in 20-30 second intervals until melted. Whisk smooth.
  • Dip balls in chocolate and turn to coat. Lift out with a fork and return to plate lined with parchment. Repeat with remaining balls. Drizzle extra chocolate on top.
  • Freeze 5 minutes until firm. ENJOY :)
