I'm on a ball kick, what can I say? I know I just shared with you the most yummy Buckeyes, but these Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles are also very delicious and decadent and I just couldn't help myself!!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles are the best eaten right out of the freezer (highly recommend). They are creamy and fudgy and chocolatey and peanut buttery and why am I so obsessed with CHOCOLATE AND PEANUT BUTTER??!
My kids absolutely want to devour these the second they know they are in the freezer. So just a little pro tip: Hide a few from your family so you can get some too!!!
Are these healthy?
What's your definition of healthy? To me "Healthy" means whatever feels best for YOUR body- mentally, physically and emotionally.
I'm all about busting out of diet culture and taking back our autonomy when it comes to listening to our bodies. Eat the food. Does it feel good? Eat more. Does it feel bad? Eat less. Are you hungry? Eat. Are you not hungry? Don't. Feel your feelings, don't eat them. Easier said than done sometimes right? That's ok. We're all a work in progress.
I personally choose to eat a Whole-Food, Plant-Based Diet that is mainly based in starches and usually lower in fat because that's how I feel the best in my body. These are NOT low fat. BUT, they are made completely of whole foods and you can even choose to leave off the chocolate coating completely if you'd like it to be 100% WFPB!
These are a chocolatey and decadent treat that I feel good about feeding to my kids and myself too every once in a while.
Let's make some Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles!
They are SO simple and SO stinkin' yummy, I really impressed myself here.
Chocolate PB Balls require only 4 Simple Ingredients, take only 2 minutes to stir it all together and another 2 minutes to roll them out into balls. Then, and here comes the hardest part... the wait. Pop them into the freezer and let them chill.
But what about the TOPPINGS?! Gosh, I love me some good toppings. It's like condiments but the sweet version! And those who know me know I'm a real sucker for condiments.
Roll those balls in some chopped peanuts before freezing them OR freeze them a bit and then drown them in some chocolate. I highly recommend both versions. My toddlers recommend the chocolate, as per usual. (These Dark Chocolate Chips have minimal ingredients and are my favorite to use!)
Enjoy this easy, wholesome treat and let me know your review below! <3

Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles
Chocolate PB Balls
- ½ cup almond flour 50 g
- 2 tablespoons cacao powder 11g
- 1 pinch sea salt (if peanut butter is unsalted)
- ¼ cup peanut butter
- 3 tablespoons maple syrup
- ⅓-½ cup dairy free dark chocolate chips* amount varies based on how to choose to coat your truffles
- ½ chopped peanuts amount varies based on how to choose to coat your truffles
- Whisk together almond flour, cacao powder and salt.
- Stir in peanut butter and maple syrup until fully combined
- Roll batter into balls using hands, about 1 tablespoon at a time. (You could also choose to make them smaller if you'd like!)
Chopped Peanuts Coating Only (no melted chocolate)
- If using chopped peanuts only, immediately roll your (non-chilled) balls into chopped peanuts until covered. Then chill in the freezer for at a few hours (even better overnight) and enjoy!
Chocolate Coating Instructions
- Chocolate Coating- Set up a double boiler (a sauce pan with a few inches of water and a stove top safe bowl over top) Add chocolate to bowl and put under low to medium heat, watching closely and stirring frequently till chocolate is melted.
- Carefully dip balls into chocolate and place on a parchment or wax paper lined plate or baking sheet. Alternative you could drizzle balls in chocolate as well.
- Sprinkle with chopped peanuts if desired. Chill for a few hours (the longer they chill the better texture they become, I recommend at least overnight if possible!)
