Paleo Peanut Butter Balls

Paleo Peanut Butter BallsThis peanut butter ball recipe started out as a GAPS peanut butter pie recipe (from the Internal Bliss cookbook by Natasha Campbell-McBride). It is definitely much different from the original recipe, but it was the inspiration for them. These are definitely a classic, and great for any occasion: serve them at parties, throw together for last-minute visits, or keep some on hand for quick snacks.

 

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter (you can replace with almond butter or sunflower seed butter if you don’t eat/can’t tolerate peanuts)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/3-2/3 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

 

Directions:

Mix together peanut butter, honey, and vanilla in a medium bowl. You can use a hand mixer if you’re in a rush or are just lazy :P.

Thoroughly mix in 1/3 cup of the almond flour. You may need to use your hands to make sure it’s completely combined (what, is that a bad thing?). If it’s still sticky, gradually add more almond flour until it resembles a dough. It should not be sticky or crumbly. If you add too much almond flour and it is crumbly, just add extra peanut butter and/or honey until it is the right consistency.

Form mixture into tablespoon-sized balls and roll them in the chopped pecans.

Refrigerate until serving time.

Makes about 30.
