Servings 16 balls
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes


  • 1 cup peanut butter (I used natural peanut butter yet any peanut butter works well)
  • 1/3 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup almond flour can substitute with coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1-2 tablespoon coconut oil melted


  • In a bowl, add the peanut butter, honey, vanilla, and salt. Give it a stir. Transfer to the freezer for 20 minutes. This will help the dough harden and make it easier for rolling into balls.
  • Take the dough out of the freezer. Use your hands to form into balls. Set the balls on a parchment lined tray.
  • Heat up the chocolate using the double boiler method. Heat a pan with a little bit of water and then place a smaller pan or metal bowl on top. You can also warm the chocolate up in the microwave. You don’t want to heat the chocolate up too soon because it will harden and won’t be easy to dip your peanut butter balls in.
  • Then use a fork to dip the balls in chocolate and then quickly remove. Set on the healthy peanut butter balls on the parchment lined tray.
  • Transfer the peanut butter balls to the freezer to set for another 20 minutes.


I also tried using baking chocolate with a drizzle of honey instead of the chocolate chips. This option worked well and was easy to melt the chocolate. Yet I know that chocolate chips are more common to have at home.
