Peanut Butter Balls - 6 Ingredients!
These are just fantastic. There are no other words, really. They taste like that peanut butter cup we all know and love, but its full of healthy, real ingredients.
I made these for the kids as a healthy holiday treat and 3 out of 3 Bower boys recommend. Needless to say, these will now be made year round in our house!

1 cup of all natural peanut butter (just peanuts and salt)
1/2 cup of raw honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp. of oat flour
1 cup of Enjoy Life semisweet chocolate chips
1 tsp refined coconut oil
In a small bowl, combine the peanut butter, honey, vanilla extract, and oat flour and stir until completely combined and lump free. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
Using a small cookie dough scoop or tablespoon, scoop about 1/2 tablespoon out and roll into a ball using your palms. Repeat, and place the peanut butter balls on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Pop the balls in the freezer for at least an hour.
In a small bowl, combine the chocolate chips and coconut oil. Melt in the microwave for 30 seconds, remove and stir. Microwave again for another 30 seconds, remove and stir. Repeat until the chocolate is completely melted.
Remove the balls from the freezer and using a fork, dip each ball in the melted chocolate and remove with the fork. Gently shake the excess chocolate off and place the ball back on to the parchment-lined cookie sheet. Sprinkle with flaky, crunchy sea salt. Repeat until all balls are covered in chocolate and sprinkled with salt. Pop the balls back in the fridge for another hour and serve when ready.
These need to be kept in the fridge, and if stored in an airtight container, will stay good for quite some time. But I promise they won't last very long!
