Salted Buckeye Balls
These no-bake buckeye balls are an upgrade from your traditional recipe, which typically uses shortening, powdered sugar, and cheap peanut butter “spread” (ahem… Jif). They are plenty sweet and filled with better-for-you ingredients:
- Natural peanut butter with only one ingredient…peanuts (vs. Jif or other junky peanut butter loaded with sugar and other ingredients that don’t belong in peanut butter)
- Coconut oil or Kerrygold grass-fed butter (vs. shortening)
- Gluten free oats and pure maple syrup (vs. powdered sugar)
- Organic dark chocolate chips (vs. GMO-filled traditional chocolate chips)
Store these bad boys in the freezer and pop one out for a decadent upgraded treat at the end of your meal (to reduce effect on blood sugar).
