  • 1 cup almond meal**
  • ⅓ - ½ cup smooth peanut butter start with ⅓ cup and add the rest a spoonful at a time if the dough is too dry
  • 3 T maple syrup or agave
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 T raw cacao nibs or mini chocolate chips/chopped dark chocolate


  1. Combine all ingredients into a bowl until you are able to pinch the dough together. If it’s too sticky, add a bit more flour, about a tablespoon at a time. If too dry, add more peanut butter as instructed above.
  2. Once the dough sticks together when pinched, allow it to rest for at least 10 minutes. This allows the dough to firm a bit.
  3. After the waiting period, roll the dough into 1-inch-sized balls and consume!

Recipe Notes

**I think oat flour could work, as it is significantly less expensive than almond flour, but I’ve found that it is not as easy to find around the world. Gluten-free folk would have to find certified gluten-free oat flour in this case. If you give this a shot, please let me know so I can make a note in the recipe.
