HOW TO MAKE PEANUT BUTTER TRUFFLES


Want a healthy snack that won't raise your sugar or add on the fat.
This is one of the best snacks to consider, packed with protein and
a great taste that will make you want to make some more.



INGREDIENTS
• 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
• 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup, divided
• 2 tablespoons coconut flour
• 2 tablespoons coconut oil
• 2 tablespoons carob powder
• Splash of vanilla extract

• Any nuts of your choosing



DIRECTIONS:

To Make the Peanut Butter Filling:
1. Combine peanut butter and stir until well combined. Add 1 tablespoon maple syrup and stir until

smooth. Add coconut flour and stir until it firms. It should resemble a stiff cookie dough. If your

“dough” is too wet, add more coconut flour. If it’s too dry, add more peanut butter. This recipe is

very forgiving.
2. Roll into 1/2 tablespoon-1 tablespoon balls, place on the plate, and place them in the freezer for

20 minutes.

To Make the Carob Coating:
1. While your peanut butter balls are in the freezer, melt coconut oil in a small bowl, then add carob

powder, 1 tablespoon maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Stir until combined.
2. After 20 minutes, remove your peanut butter balls from the freezer. Re-roll them into smooth

balls if desired. Dip balls one-by-one into carob coating, being sure that the entire ball is covered.**
I used a small dessert fork and it worked perfectly.
3. Return carob-dipped balls to a parchment paper-lined plate, and place in the freezer to set. Store

the truffles in the freezer for an indulgent treat anytime!

*You can sprinkle crushed nuts for added taste & protien.
