Buckeye Balls

Author: Heidi Boortz
Servings : 40 each


  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup honey divided to 1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp
  • 2 cup old fashioned oats (use gluten free if desired)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate cocoa powder unsweetened


  • In a blender or food processor, process the oats until they are a fine powder.
  • Combine processed oats, peanut butter, 1/2 c. honey, and salt in a small bowl. Stir well until a dough forms. Make 40 1 inch balls from the dough, and place each about 1 inch apart on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Place in freezer for 1 hour.
  • Melt coconut oil over med. heat until melted. Remove from heat and stir in cocoa powder and 2 T. honey. Stir well until cocoa is dissolved.
  • Remove cookies from freezer. Using a toothpick, dip almost all the way into the chocolate. Shake to remove excess. Place back on the parchment-lined baking sheet and repeat with all remaining balls. Allow to chill 10-15 minutes or until chocolate is hardened. Place cookies in airtight container and store in freezer. Makes 40 cookies.
