How to make Healthy no bake peanut butter truffles

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

One note here – I used sugar free peanut butter in my recipe, and it’s the only kind I buy!

Just look at the label and the only ingredients should be roasted peanuts and salt.

Add in 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 1/4 cup of coconut flour as my peanut butter was drippy.

Roll filling into small balls and place on a cookie sheet.

Freeze for 5 minutes to chill slightly.

While those are chilling, melt coconut oil and chocolate in the microwave (be careful not to burn).

Once melted, stir in the salt to combine.

Drop peanut butter balls into the chocolate, and use a spoon to drip the chocolate over the balls.

Use a fork to get the balls back out and onto the cookie sheet. (look up a tutorial for necessary, but it’s really quite easy!)

Freeze truffles until chocolate is set and you’re ready to eat!

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

I am not exactly the most talented at truffle dipping, so there are not picture perfect.

But remember, you don’t have to be perfect at cooking or baking, it’s the love that goes into it and these truffles will taste delicious whether or not they are perfectly formed!

After dipping three truffles I handed the task over to my husband, who turned out to be much better (and patient) than me.

Whether they look pretty or not, they are so delicious that no one will care about how perfect your truffle skills are.

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.

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!
