For peanut butter filling:

For chocolate coating:

In a medium bowl, mix together the peanut butter, honey and a pinch of sea salt. Add in the coconut flour gradually– starting first with a 1/4 cup, then adding it in a tablespoon at a time until a "dough" forms. I ended up using a 1/2 cup of coconut flour, but it may vary depending on the texture of your peanut butter.

Using a cookie scoop, drop the dough by rounded tablespoons onto a pan lined with parchment paper. (Roll with your hands to make them smooth, if you like.) Place them in the freezer to set for 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes, melt the chocolate together with the coconut oil. (I used an oven-safe bowl– 5 minutes at 400F– but any method works!)

Remove the peanut butter balls from the freezer, and dip each one into the melted chocolate mixture, coating each one thoroughly. Return the chocolate-covered balls to the parchment paper to set. There will inevitably be some areas that won't get covered (where your fingers touched), so feel free to spoon some extra chocolate over the tops when they've all been dipped!

Return the balls to the freezer to set for another 30 minutes, then serve. They are delicious when served cold, or at room temperature!

I recommend storing them in the fridge or freezer for longer shelf-life.

These turned out great. You never miss the typical recipe with powdered sugar.

This sounds great! What kind of dark chocolate do you use?

I made this and added 1/4 cup chocolate protein powder and they turned out great

These look healthier than the usual peanut butter ball and I bet they're delicious. I was glancing through looking for bite sized desserts to made for a party next week - this will be one of them

These peanut butter balls are great. My kids enjoyed them without the chocolate. After I dipped them in dark chocolate, they would not eat them. Next time, I will not dip them in the dark chocolate.

hi is there an alternative to the coconut flour?
# Posted By Nettie | 12/11/12 8:28 AM
Alternative to coconut flour: as noted in earlier comments, you can use protein powder (the version I started with). I'll also be trying it with almond flour.

Any suggestions with how to make this with cacao powder instead?
# Posted By Loraine | 7/22/13 1:56 PM
I made these 3 times this week and used almond flour each time. BEST DESSERT EVER!
