3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Balls with Coconut Flour (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Print

My kid loves these! They are a great snack that you can prepare beforehand and grab and go. You can interchange the peanut butter with any nut butter you’d like! I’ve used almond and sunflower butter in the past, too. Also you can roll them in some shredded coconut for added texture.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

These simple sweet treats are a perfect snack, with protein and fiber that will help keep blood sugar spikes at bay, and tide you over until your next meal. Peanut butter is a good source of vitamin E and B vitamins like niacin and B6, as well as potassium, magnesium, and manganese. Just make sure you check the ingredient list. Even “natural” peanut butter often has added sugar and other ingredients, like palm oil. Stick to jars that contain just peanuts and salt.

    These are awesome! My toddler gets to help make them and then eat them; he gobbles them up. Thanks for the great, easy recipe 😁

    My daughter LOVES peanut butter bites, but the commercially produced ones use wheat flour, which is a no-no for my Celiac son. So, these look like they might be perfect for my tricky kids. But, is the maple syrup strictly necessary. My girl is not a big fan of maple in anything but pancakes. If the syrup is needed for consistencey, could honey be a substitute? (Not that that would help my son, since he’s only 1 now, but it’s at least CLOSER to a sharable snack.)

    LOVE LOVE LOVE. I made these for a hike I did – started at 7am and finished making a batch by 7:20am! SO easy – I love that the coconut flour gave it a silky texture. They were the star on our hike and powered us up and down 11 miles of hills!

      Sounds amazing!!!! I love the coconut flour too. Original recipe (the one I had as a kid) was dry milk. I like the coconut flour so much better!!!

        I do too. Sometimes coconut flour can be really difficult to work with because it’s so dry. But it works perfectly in this recipe! Have you tried it yet? I’m thinking of doing another batch soon and testing it with almond butter instead of peanut butter

    Diana these are so great! I make them all the time. I like to sub out peanut butter for almond butter– works really well too. I also add cocoa nibs in there for added crunch, and it tastes amazing. Thanks for the recipe!
