Peanut butter balls can be made with 3 basic ingredients.
Peanut Butter: I have used creamy natural peanut butter here, but feel free to use crunchy peanut butter (with or without salt), almond butter, cashew butter, coconut butter. melted, pecan butter, sun butter, etc.
Sweetener: Just use your favorite all-purpose liquid sweetener here, like pure maple syrup, agave, or honey (not for vegans). If you want to make peanut butter scoops without sugar or keto, then this keto maple syrup works too.
Coconut flour: It is not flour at all; it is simply dried coconut that has been finely ground until it resembles the texture of wheat flour. There’s a coconut-free option included in the recipe post below, or oatmeal works too if you prefer.

Above watch the peanut butter ball recipe video
- 1 1/2 cup peanut butter or antiallergic submarine
- 2/3 Cup coconut flour or oatmeal – here is a version without coconut
- 1/3 Cup liquid sweetener, such as pure maple syrup or keto syrup
- optional 3 oz of chocolate (melted with 3-4 teaspoons of oil if desired for a smoother sauce)
If it’s not already soft, warm it gently to soften the nut butter until it’s easily stirred. Combine all the ingredients except the optional chocolate – I have found that using a food processor is much easier and results in a more completely mixed dough, but technically stirring by hand also works with a lot of force. arms. Toss until it resembles a peanut butter cookie dough. (If using dry nut butter, add a little oil or additional sweetener if needed to form a dough. Or if the dough is too soft, add more oatmeal.) Roll into balls. If desired, dip them in melted chocolate, then place them on a parchment or wax-lined tray and refrigerate or freeze to set. If you’re not using chocolate, they don’t need to be refrigerated.See the nutritional value
