Buckeye Balls!

 

This is the first time I have made buckeye balls and, even though they might not have turned out exactly how I had wished, the taste is amazing and they are very addicting. Definitely a repeat recipe in this household! I researched several recipes on healthy buckeye balls and found lots, but nothing that really suit me. The recipe I have below is a bit of an experiment derived from another recipe for peanut butter fudge. Lets just say, it was a GOOD experiment (a little sticky) and delicious!  🙂

Buckeye Balls

Ingredients:

2 cups of peanut butter (equivalent to one 16oz. jar)

1/2 cup browned butter

1/2 cup of coconut flour

1/4 of tapioca flour (cassava works too)

1/4 cup of raw honey

1/2 teaspoon of salt

1/2 teaspoon of vanilla

1 bag of Simple Truth chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Brown the butter by placing it in a shallow sauce pan and melting it until it turns a dark golden brown.
  2. In a medium sized mixing bowl combine the peanut butter, flour, browned butter and honey, mix well. Add the sea salt and vanilla and stir to combine.
  3. Cover the bowl and place it in the freezer for 20-25 min, depending on how sticky it is. I put mine in for a good 25 min. (I’m not a big fan of working with sticky batter).
  4. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and melt the chocolate chips.
  5. Now your ready for the fun part, using a teaspoon (or tablespoon depending on how big you like your buckeyes) scoop and roll the batter into a ball. Place on the parchment paper and scoop chocolate over it until it’s well covered. Originally I was supposed to take a tooth pick and stick each ball into the melted chocolate, but as my batter was a bit sticky and not cooperative I resorted to just pouring some chocolate over the ball.
  6. Cover baking sheets and place in the freezer until hardened.  Enjoy!

Have a good Friday and enjoy your weekend!!
