Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Balls {Christmas Brunch}

I love treats like this that are on the healthy side, plus very easy to put together! With four simple ingredients that many of us have on hand – I’ll bet some of you will hop right off your chair and get them started right away. And I highly recommend that you do.

But beware – these are little balls of peanut butter, chocolatey, coconutty addictiveness. You’ve been warned.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip BallsYum

1 cup natural peanut butter (I use homemade peanut butter)
1/4 cup coconut oil
2 Tablespoons honey
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Melt coconut oil and honey together in a saucepan. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter until mixture is smooth. Fold in chocolate chips. Spread mixture into a 9×9 inch pan. Refrigerate for about two hours. Roll mixture into 1 inch balls. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

    I love chocolate and pb together. If it wasn’t so late, I’d probably be making some… and probably eating it before spreading it in the pan!

    All I could think when I saw these was that to make them better, I would melt some chocolate chips and a little oil and dip them so that they were covered in a chocolate shell….not quite as healthy, but yum!

    I make some peanut butter balls that look exactly like these. They are one of my family’s all-time favorites, but they have sweetened condensed milk and powdered sugar. I’m going to have to try this healthier version!

    Thank you! I’ve been collecting recipes to make this season with my kids to show them that there are alternatives! This is great!


  5. Saliah Kako says

    For an added bonus, dip these into some melted chocolate and place them in a mini muffin liner and cool in the fridge. Oh yum!!!!


  6. says

    Oooh, the only peanut butter balls I’ve had are the ones made with powdered milk (perfect for hiding crushed up medicine that your sister refuses to take…). I’ll have to try these!

    As I am allergic to coconut–any good alternative? I also will need to use almond butter in place of the peanut butter. These sound absolutely delicious in spite of my allergies.

    Maybe palm oil/shortening if that works for you. Using almond butter sounds great!


  8. Carrie says

    Yep…going right to the kitchen to make some! Our oven has been broken since before thanksgiving; so we can make these! New stove comes Monday:)

    Those look delicious! Does it have to be coconut oil? Or will olive oil work just as well? I’m not a coconut fan.


    Laura Reply:

    I believe olive oil would work, although I haven’t tried it so can’t say yes for sure. :)

    My chocolate melted (guess i was too quick in folding in the chocolate chips) and created a beautiful swirled look. So then I just cut it into squares and called it fudge – oh my- IT IS DELICIOUS! So melt in your mouth (literally!) and creamy! What a blessed Christmas treat for this dairy allergy girl and her not dairy allergy husband! I cannot wait until the dairy allergy kids can try it tomorrow!
