Peanut Butter. Chocolate. Rice Bubbles.

But believe it or not, these Peanut Butter Crunch Balls aren’t just delicious – they’re also low in sugar, which makes them the perfect guilt-free treat!
Simply mix the ingredients together, roll into balls and pop them in the freezer. After 30 minutes, dip them in melted chocolate and coconut oil, then pop them in the freezer again until they’re ready to eat!
Here’s how you make peanut butter crunch balls:
- 195 grams All Natural Peanut Butter
- 80 grams Maple Syrup
- 2 grams Sea Salt
- 90 grams Oat Flour
- 15 grams Rice Bubbles Cereal
- 50 grams Dark Chocolate
- 1 tsp Coconut Oil
Step by Step Instructions
In a mixing bowl, mix together the peanut butter, maple syrup and sea salt. Add in the oat flour and mix well until a soft dough forms. Gently fold in the rice bubbles cereal until evenly distributed.
Line a baking tray with baking paper. Use a tablespoon to drop small balls onto the baking paper then use your hands to roll them into a ball and smooth them out. Store in the freezer for 30 minutes.
Set up a double boiler: Fill a medium pot with an inch of water and place a smaller pot or heat-safe bowl on top ensuring the water is not touching the bottom of the smaller pot or bowl. The smaller pot or bowl should rest tightly on top of the pot and any water or steam should not be able to escape.
Bring water to a boil then reduce to lowest heat. Add the dark chocolate and coconut oil to the smaller pot and stir continuously until melted. Remove from stovetop.
Remove the baking tray of peanut butter balls from the freezer. Using a spoonful of melted chocolate at a time slowly drizzle the chocolate over top of each ball, or alternatively, dip each one into the melted chocolate mixture and place them back on the baking paper.
Let the peanut butter balls set in the freezer for 30 minutes to harden. Remove from freezer and enjoy right away, or store in the fridge or freezer to eat later.
