Warning: These Crispy Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls are so scrumptious, you can never stop at just one. They start with chocolate and peanut butter (a perfect pair as far as we're concerned) and then get their crunchy bite thanks to a special secret ingredient.


pitted Medjool dates
3/4 cup
smooth natural peanut butter
1/4 cup
coconut flour
1 cup
crisp rice cereal
2 cups
dark chocolate chips
2 tsp
coconut oil


In the bowl of a food processor add the dates, peanut butter, and coconut flour. Blend until everything is well combined. Transfer the mixture into a large bowl. Fold in the crisp rice cereal. Roll the mixture into 1 inch balls. Arrange them on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Place them in the freezer for 20 to 30 minutes to firm up.

Meanwhile, over low heat, melt the chocolate and coconut oil in a double boiler, stirring often. Once the chocolate is completely melted, using a fork, dip the balls, one at a time, and coat them evenly with the chocolate. Allow any excess chocolate to drip off and set them back on the parchment-lined baking sheet. If using, sprinkle the top of each ball with a little bit of flaked sea salt. Refrigerate until the chocolate has completely set, about 20 minutes.

Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
