Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup erythritol
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (or almond butter for Paleo)
  • 1 tbsp warm water
  • 1/2 tsp gelatin
  • 1/2 cup sugar free chocolate chips (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine almond flour, erythritol, peanut butter and sea salt. 

  2. Whisk warm water and gelatin in a small bowl and then add to peanut butter mixture. Mix in thoroughly. 

  3. Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler over the stove or in the microwave. If you use the microwave, heat in 15 second increments stirring in between to avoid burning the chocolate. 

  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment and roll peanut butter mixture into 12 balls.  

  5. Use a spoon to roll them in the melted chocolate. I like to roll some and just drizzle the chocolate on some. 

  6. Place on lined baking sheet and transfer to fridge or freezer to set for at least 30 minutes. Once firm, place in an airtight container and store in the fridge.
