For the almond butter filling
- 3/4 cup natural almond butter
- 1/4 cup raw honey (or maple syrup)
- 1/2 cup fine ground almond flour
- pinch of salt
For the chocolate coating
- 1 cup (8 oz.) gluten-free dark chocolate chips, melted
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil
- In a medium bowl, mix together almond butter, honey and a pinch of salt.
- Add in the almond flour gradually, starting first with a 1/4 cup, then adding it in a tablespoon at a time until a dough forms. I ended up using a 1/2 cup, but it may vary depending on the texture of your almond butter.
- Using a teaspoon, tablespoon, or cookie dough scoop to scoop up almond butter mixture, roll into a ball and place on parchment paper lined cookie sheet or cutting board. Continue until all dough is rolled into balls.
- Place in the freezer for 30 minutes. Once frozen, remove from the freezer and set aside.
- In a microwave safe dish, melt chocolate and coconut oil, approximately 1 minute. Dip almond butter balls in chocolate and turn to coat. Place back onto the parchment paper and cover any areas where your fingers touched with chocolate.
- Store in the refrigerator.
