Healthy Sweet Peanut Butter Balls

Rated as 3 out of 5 Stars

"This is my take on a healthy, protein-packed, energy-filled peanut butter ball. We all know nuts and seeds are nutritious, but getting them into your diet can be hard when eating them raw doesn't appeal. Here they add a lovely crunchy texture and complement the strong peanut butter taste. This is a great low-carb snack between meals or to satisfy an after-dinner sweet tooth. Make sure you use an all-natural peanut butter with no additives."

  1. Spray a small skillet with cooking spray; add sunflower and pumpkin seeds. Warm over low heat until they just start to brown, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to a small bowl. Add peanut butter, almond flour, flaxseed meal, dark chocolate, and honey to the bowl. Mix well.
  2. Scoop out level tablespoon-sized portions of the mixture with a measuring spoon. Roll into balls with your fingers.
  3. Place shredded coconut in a shallow bowl. Roll each ball in coconut to coat. Transfer to refrigerator; chill until set, about 30 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Substitute almond flour for the flaxseed meal if preferred.
  • Use almond flour for rolling the peanut butter balls instead of coconut if desired.
  • Store these in the refrigerator or freezer until serving.

OK taste to these, but not my favorite. I would cut the seeds in half and use oats instead. Also, some kind of dried fruit would have helped with texture and taste. These aren't very sweet at al...
