Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Balls

Posted on August 28, 2012


We have been experiencing lots of rainy, wet weather from the Tropical Storm the past few days.  I decided tonight that we needed an exciting pick-me-up.

I had just added Chocolate Covered Katie’s, Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Balls to my “Recipes to Try” Pinterest Board and thought what a better pick-me-up than chocolate.  And the thought of chocolate combined with peanut butter in one scrumptious bite sounded even better!

I had a new jar of Peanut Butter & Co.’s “Mighty Maple” that I thought would be tasty in this recipe.  I also popped open a jar of the new Earth Balance “Coconut and Peanut Butter Spread” that I have been waiting to try.  You can use fancy, flavored spreads, or plain creamy peanut butter will be just as delicious.

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Balls:

Adapted from Chocolate Covered Katie

  • 1 cup organic rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup peanut butter (or substitute regular creamy peanut butter)
  • 1/2 cup Earth Balance coconut and peanut spread (or substitute regular creamy peanut butter)
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons organic raw blue agave nectar
  • 2 tablespoons spelt, almond or all-purpose flour (I used spelt).
  • 3/4 bag of vegan chocolate chips
  • dash of salt

Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl.  Roll into bite-size balls.  Enjoy!
