Ingredients

Peanut Butter Balls
  • 1 cup unsweetened creamy peanut butter
  • 2 TBS refined coconut oil
  • ½ cup Swerve Confectioners
  • ½ Cup unsweetened protein powder like Tera’s Whey
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ tsp kosher salt (optional)
  • 1 cup Lily’s dark chocolate baking chips
  • 1 tsp refined coconut oil


Chocolate Coating
  • 1 cup Lily’s dark chocolate baking chips
  • 1 tsp refined coconut oil

Instructions

  • To make peanut butter balls, place parchment paper on a small cookie sheet or plate.
  • Combine all peanut butter ball ingredients in a medium bowl until smooth. Cover and place in freezer for one hour before shaping.
  • Scoop out a heaping tablespoon of dough and roll into a ball with your hands. Place a toothpick in the middle of each peanut butter ball, and place balls on parchment paper in the freezer for an hour.
  • 15 minutes before taking out of freezer, whisk chocolate chips and coconut oil in a double boiler until combined and smooth. Remove chocolate sauce from heat.
  • Remove peanut butter balls from freezer. Holding the toothpick, dip peanut balls into chocolate. The peanut butter ball to chocolate ratio is whatever you desire! Place chocolate covered peanut butter ball pack on parchment paper and remove toothpick (optional).  Once all peanut balls are dipped, place in the fridge for 15 minutes.
  • Remove from fridge and enjoy!

Note: when not eating, keep peanut butter balls stored in a Tupperware container in your fridge.
