Peanut Butter Chocolate Dough Balls

I love all manner of raw bliss ball type snacks, but these are my absolute favourite. 

There's just something about peanut butter and chocolate, and the soft doughy feel of these. Once refrigerated, they have a firmer, cakey texture which is also quite addictive.  

And just four ingredients!

I used to make a version of these years ago with soy powder. I remember arriving home from work needing something rich, sweet and fast to make and they always did the trick. 

However, soy powder is not usually something I have in my cupboard. I decided to recreate a healthier version of these dough balls using coconut flour. Also, I have quite a bit of coconut flour to use up! The coconut flour is perfect in texture for these balls and doesn't have an overwhelmingly coconutty flavour. 

Ah, first my obsession with besan flour, now coconut flour! I've tried baking with coconut flour a bit, but I prefer it in raw recipes. 

Janet at the Taste Space has some fantastic vegan coconut flour recipes I am looking forward to trying. 

What are your favourite recipes using coconut flour?

Peanut Butter Chocolate Dough Balls

1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1/4 cup coconut flour
2 heaped tbsp cocoa powder
1/4 cup rice malt syrup

Combine all ingredients and roll into balls! 

They are softer at room temperature and firmer once refrigerated. 


  1. Yum!! I love how simple these are - no food processor required and hardly any ingredients :) The ingredients in question are ones I always have to hand, too. I'll definitely be giving these a go.

    1. Thanks Kari, hope you like them! No blender definitely a plus, no waking sleeping babies :)

  2. these are too addictive for me, I eat half before I even get to the ball rolling stage.

    1. Haha I do the same! Part of the fun of making them :)
