Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 15 balls
Ingredients
  • 1 cup 100% natural peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup, to taste
  • 2-3 tablespoons coconut flour (I used 2)
  • 6 tablespoons gluten-free rice crisp cereal
  • ¾ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ tablespoon coconut oil
Instructions
  1. Stir the jar of peanut butter well before using. In a large bowl, mix together the peanut butter and maple syrup vigorously, for 30-60 seconds, until it thickens up. It will go from runny to thick during this time.
  2. Stir in the coconut flour until combined We're looking for a texture that isn't too sticky, but not too dry either. Let it sit for a couple minutes to firm up as the coconut flour will continue to absorb moisture with time. Add a touch more coconut flour if necessary. Or if it's too dry, add a touch more syrup.
  3. stir in the cereal.
  4. Shape into small balls (I made about 15) In a small pot, add the chocolate chips and coconut oil and heat over low heat, stirring frequently. Once half the chips have melted, remove from heat and stir until completely smooth.
  5. With a fork, dip the balls into the melted chocolate. Tap off excess chocolate on the side of the pot and place the ball on a plate or cutting board lined with parchment. Repeat for the rest.
  6. Place balls in the freezer for around 15 mins until firm.
  7. Enjoy store in fridge.
