How to make Healthy no bake peanut butter truffles

Step 1: use a mixer to beat together peanut butter, maple syrup, coconut palm sugar, and salt for the filling.

Step 2: add in the coconut flour slowly, until the mixture is not wet but not very dry.

It should be easy to roll the balls without the mixture sticking to your hands.

This will depend on your peanut butter texture how much flour to add.

I used ¼ cup of coconut flour as my peanut butter was drippy.

Step 4: While the peanut butter balls are chilling, melt the coconut oil and chocolate in the microwave (be careful not to burn).

Once melted, stir in the salt to combine.

Step 5: Drop the peanut butter balls one at a time into the chocolate, and use a spoon to drip the chocolate over the balls.

One note is that these will melt at room temperature, so it’s best to eat them straight from the fridge or freezer!

  1. Really easy to make and yummy, but this is only a vegan recipe if you get semi-sweet chocolate chips that are dairy free – the typical Nestle bag contains milk and won’t cut it. From what I can see, this isn’t directly stated in the recipe.

  2. so delicious! we used almond flour as well instead of coconut, since we didn’t have that… and dark chocolate, because I can’t do dairy, and they were still amazing! thanks for the great recipe.

  3. 5 stars
    These were delicious! I’m not really a fan of peanut butter & chocolate but these were great! I used pb w/out sugar. And I probably could have made a chocolate sauce with cocoa powder (or raw cacao powder ) mixed with melted coconut oil & maple syrup – but just used 3/4 cup normal chocolate chips with 1/4 cup butterscotch chips! Just like scotcheroos!

  4. 5 stars
    i followed the recipe as is and these came out so delicious! thinking of subbing the choc chips with vegan ones to make this a little less fatty.

    thanks for sharing!

  5. Hi there,

    This recipe looks so tasty!

    I see that you have an asterisk next to the coconut flour that says see recipe notes, but there’s nothing in the recipe notes area. Is it possible to substitute regular flour for coconut flour?

    Thanks so much!

    1. Hi Emily,

      Sorry for the confusion! I meant to say see instructions, not notes, as you may not need quite 1/4 cup of flour. As far as the flour substitution, I don’t think regular flour would work. Traditional peanut butter truffles use a lot of powdered sugar, so the coconut flour is helping us replace that to make it healthier. The texture of coconut flour is very light whereas normal flour is a lot heavier. Hope that helps!

      1. @Allison, hey just wanted to let you know, regular all purpose flour is not safe to eat raw.
        The recipe looks delicious, Joy! Can’t wait to try.
