keto peanut butter balls
Peanut Butter Cookie Dough:
powdered Swerve Sweetener
lightly roasted peanut flour
sugar-free dark chocolate
or 1/2 tbsp coconut oil
finely chopped salted peanuts
Line a large baking sheet with waxed paper or parchment paper.
In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter and peanut butter together. Stir in the sweetener and vanilla extract until smooth.
Add the peanut flour and stir until a stiff dough forms. Add more flour if your dough seems too sticky to roll into balls.
Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and place on the prepared baking sheet. Freeze until firm, about 1 hour
Place the chocolate and cocoa butter in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water. Stir until melted and smooth.
Drop the frozen peanut butter balls in chocolate and use a fork to roll around to coat. Lift out and tap the fork firmly against the side of the the bowl to remove excess chocolate.
If making buckeyes, use a small skewer to dip the peanut butter balls most of the way into the chocolate, swirling to coat. Leave just the very top of the ball uncoated.
Place back on the baking sheet and sprinkle with chopped peanuts, if desired. The chocolate will set quickly if the dough balls are frozen so sprinkle each truffle right after dipping in chocolate.
