Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup natural, unsalted creamy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • ¼ cup raw cacao powder or unsweetened cocoa powder

Instructions

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper. Clear some space in the freezer for this sheet. Set aside at room temperature.
  2. In a medium bowl, add peanut butter, maple syrup, coconut flour and cacao powder. Whisk as long as you can. When the mixture gets harder to stir, use a rubber spatula to fold until well incorporated. Fold until thickened.
  3. Using a cookie scoop, scoop and drop peanut butter balls onto the prepared baking sheet, spaced evenly apart. Here are the 1-tablespoon and 2-tablespoon cookie scoops I use.
  4. Transfer to the freezer to chill for 20-30 minutes, until somewhat firm.* Remove from freezer and roll into balls, or enjoy as is! Enjoy! Storing instructions below.Try the non-chocolate version here: 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter No Bake Energy Bites.

Notes

  • Adapted from my 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter No Bake Energy Bites.
  • *Bites will become firmer and less moist the next day.
  • Storage Notes: Store in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator for 1-3 weeks. Bites will become drier, but are still tasty in the 3rd week.
  • Nutrition Information: is an estimate based on the ingredients listed in Where to Buy Ingredients. Also, it’s estimated based on 23 servings per recipe.
  • Freezing instructions: store in an airtight container in the freezer for 1-2 months. Firm, but soft enough to eat straight out of the freezer.
