What if I told you that it’s possible to make healthy peanut butter balls? Well, it is! This no bake recipe is sweetened with honey and has protein powder instead of the powdered sugar. Dip them in sugar free chocolate chips and you have yourself a healthy dessert. Come on, let me show you how to make this easy recipe!

When I was a litle girl my dad introduced me to the heavenliness that are peanut butter balls. My grandmother would make them for us to enjoy when we made the long drive from Tennessee to Pennsylvania.
I’ve recreated her recipe and made a healthier version of this special treat. Instead of the powdered sugar I’ve used protein powder and added some honey for sweetness. I also used Lily’s Chocolate Chips which are sweetened with stevia leaf extra.
These peanut butter balls may not have all of the sugar but they’re still sweet, and now they’re guilt-free which is even better!
Easy and Healthy Peanut Butter Balls
Yield: 35 small peanut butter balls
16 oz jar Natural Peanut filled
1/3 cup of Chocolate Protein Powder (this whole food protein powder is my favorite)
1/4 cup Honey
1 tsp. Vanilla
2 cups Lily’s Chocolate chips
2 tbsp. Coconut Oil
- Mix together the peanut butter, protein powder, honey and vanilla.
- Using a small scoop, scoop the peanut butter mixture onto a parchment lined baking sheet. (You can also place a scoop in your hand and roll it into a ball if you want a more uniform look.)
- Place filled baking sheet in the freezer for about 30 minutes to let the balls firm up.
- For the chocolate coating, place your chocolate chips and coconut oil in a small bowl and microwave for 60
