  • 3/4 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • optional toppings: sea salt, lime zest, sprinkles


  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together almond butter and coconut flour until a thick paste forms. 
  • Scoop a heaping teaspoon of the mixture onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper or form the mixture into a ball using your hands. I used a small cookie scoop like this one. Continue until all the mixture is used.*
  • Place the baking sheet in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  • Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl in 30 second increments until the chocolate is completely melted.
  • Using a spoon or fork, dunk the cold almond butter balls into the melted chocolate, making sure to fully cover every side.
  • Place the chocolate covered balls back onto the parchment paper and top with desired toppings.
  • Place the balls back into the freezer for 10 minutes or until chocolate has set.



Tip: You may need to add more coconut flour if the mixture isn't staying in the ball shape or more almond butter if the mixture is too stiff and dry. I find that almond butter that is made with only almonds and nothing else tends to be a little more oily than other almond butters because of the natural separation that can happen. If that's the case, simply add in 1 more teaspoon of coconut flour at a time until the mixture isn't too soft.
