These no-bake peanut butter balls are so easy they’re basically an UNrecipe, but my kids ask for them all the time so I figured they were worth sharing. And really, who says recipes have to be complicated? They’re adapted from these cookie dough bites, which y’all have had quite a bit to say about . . .
These are amazing! My picky son couldn’t get enough of them (and honestly, neither could I!).” – Monica
Ah!! Finally! A cookie dough recipe that doesn’t suck! I’ve tried so many cookie dough ball recipes that didn’t even close taste like the real thing. But this recipe is amazing!! -Leah
I made these. And they are AWESOME! They’re like grain free cookie dough. Soooo happy. Yum.” – Tracy
All you need are a handful of ingredients – peanut butter, maple syrup, salt and vanilla – and either coconut or tigernut flour.
Which flour should I use?
When I first created the cookie dough bite recipe, my goal was to incorporate more resistant starch into my family’s diet. Unlike most starches, resistant starch is indigestible to us, but a favorite food of the good bacteria that live in our digestive tracts.
The thing is, tigernut flour is not something everyone has in their pantry, so I made it my mission to recreate the recipe with coconut flour. Although it is not a type of resistant starch, coconut flour is also amazing for gut health because it contains both soluble and insoluble forms of fiber – both which nourish beneficial bacteria.
So which flour should you use? The answer is either, but keep in mind that you typically want to start slow with resistant starch and work up the amount you consume, so if you want to eat these all in one sitting it’s probably best to go with the coconut flour.
Either way, I hope you love them as much as we do!
No-Bake Peanut Butter Balls Recipe (With Resistant Starch)
Makes 16 balls
Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix together with a fork until well-combined. Place in the fridge to chill for about 20 minutes, then roll it into one large ball and divide in half until you have 16 balls. Store in an airtight container in the fridge to keep them from drying out.
