Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls

Yield: 24 peanut butter balls, 1" diameter

Ingredients

  • 1 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup lentil puree
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2-3oz melted dark chocolate mixed with 1 tsp canola or butter

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix peanut butter, maple syrup, lentil puree, ground flaxseed and salt until it forms a rollable dough. (To make lentil puree, whirl 1 cup cooked lentils with 1/4 cup water until the consistency is similar to pumpkin puree.)
  2. If the mixture seems too wet, add more ground flaxseed.
  3. Make 1 inch dough balls, rolling into round balls in your hands.
  4. Place chocolate and canola oil in a heatproof bowl and put on top of a pot of lightly boiling water. Stir chocolate until it melts. (Or place chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave bowl in 30-second intervals. Stir in between intervals until chocolate melts.)
  5. Using a fork or two spoons, coat the dough ball with melted chocolate.
  6. Place on parchment lined baking sheet or plate.
  7. Put in fridge for an hour to harden.
  8. Store in fridge.
