There isn’t much to say about the peanut butter bites except YUM! Most peanut butter bites are made as a dessert and are filled with sugar and coated in processed sugary chocolate. Because of that you wouldn’t really consider them a healthy snack so much as a sweet treat. These bites are different. They are refined sugar free, only have 4 ingredients and not coated in sugar, either. Yet, they taste sweetly delicious. The secret for the sweetness is in the coconut flour. Coconut flour is high in protein, fiber, and healthy fats but low in sugar (and therefore low on the glycemic index). That’s the kicker, coconut flour is low in sugar yet brings a distinct sweetness to any recipe.
1/2 cup natural peanut butter (be sure to find PB that does’t have added oil or sugar)
1/2 cup coconut flour
3 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
- In a large bowl mix all your ingredients until combined.
- Roll into balls a little smaller than golf ball sized.
- Refrigerate for 30 minutes to stiffen them. You can store them in or out of the refrigerator in a air tight container. We personally prefer them in the fridge.
