  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1/2 cup finely ground almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup - honey or agave also works
  • 1 teaspoon melted coconut oil

Chocolate coating

  • 1/3 cup semi-sweet or unsweetened chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon Himalayan salt


  • In a medium bowl, mix your almond butter, almond flour, maple syrup, and melted coconut. Use your hands to knead the mixture together well. Roll the almond butter balls between your palms and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Place in your fridge for about a half hour.
  • Add your chocolate chips and coconut oil to a small bowl and microwave for about 30 seconds. Stir well and microwave for an additional 30 seconds if necessary.
  • Swirl your almond butter balls in your melted chocolate and place on a drying rack to allow excess to drip off. Sprinkle each almond butter ball with a small amount of salt and refrigerate for about an hour or until chocolate is firm.
