3 Ingredient Keto Peanut Butter Balls (Low Carb)

peanut butter keto energy balls: just 3 ingredients for quick ‘n easy keto peanut butter balls that are low carb!

Are you going keto or low carb this year? Not gonna lie, Erik and I’ve been doing keto on and off for the last few years or so and it truly is something else. One thing that I’ve taken away from it? You stay full for so much longer when you’re eating more healthy fats!

I know, some of you are face-palming right now, like, “Duh, Demeter!!” But you know what? I’m a child of the 80s/90s and guess what? We were taught to be super duper scared of fat and eat tons of carbs (like 8-12 slices of bread a day) and also wear spandex cut way too high on the thigh when going to the gym. I mean, there were so many bad ideas during that period!

So, let’s skip the duh’s and just go, “Ah, I see! Now gimme all the keto energy balls!!!” That’s better.  Well, one thing I learned going keto was that you don’t have to be on the keto diet to strategically drop a couple keto energy balls and/or other keto snacks in your diet to stay satisfied for longer.

As such, I’m sharing my Peanut Butter Keto Energy Balls recipe with you—both for keto and non-keto folks alike.

4 easy steps with just 3 simple ingredients for keto peanut butter balls that are lightly sweet and totally satisfying.

How to Make Keto Peanut Butter Balls


First, line a baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper. You can even use a plate if that’s what you have on hand!

Add Ingredients

Add all keto peanut butter balls ingredients to a medium bowl: peanut butter, coconut flour and keto maple syrup. 


Using a fork, go ahead and stir it all together until well mixed. I like to finish this off by stirring and folding with a rubber spatula. 

Scoop and Enjoy!

Using a small or medium cookie scoop, scoop and drop keto balls onto the prepared baking sheet (or plate!). Now, enjoy the easiest keto peanut butter balls ever!

  1. Could you use keto syrup? I couldn’t find keto maple and wanted to try these immediately

    1. Hi Sherry! Every brand works a bit differently, but as long as it’s not a flavoring syrup (like for drinks), it should be fine. The maple flavor definitely isn’t necessary. Hope this helps! 🙂

  2. Works great for making cannabis edibles. Just add cannabutter and a little extra coconut flour until it’s the right thickness. Taste delicious and you’ll sleep like a baby!

  3. Used Lakanto maple syrup and added Lakanto chocolate chips – wow! So delicious. Thanks for the recipe

  4. i love peanut butter! i hear about these energy balls all the time – can you share more about the why they’re important for keto? i’m just sort of not eating carbs but need to learn more – they look so good!

  5. This is the perfect bite size treat! I always start craving a sweet treat in the afternoon and this is perfect!
