Here’s how to make them:


For the Peanut Butter Mixture:

  • 1 ¼ cup natural peanut butter

  • 1 tablespoon of melted coconut oil

  • 2 scoops of vanilla protein powder (we like vegan vanilla Shakeology)

  • 2 tablespoons of 5 Sparrows Brand Salted Caramel

  • ⅓ cup almond flour

  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon Stevia

  • 3 tablespoons of sugar-free mini chocolate chips

For the Chocolate Coating:


  1. In a medium bowl or a stand mixer, combine the peanut butter and coconut oil and mix until smooth. Add the remaining peanut butter mixture ingredients and mix until combined. Cover tightly and allow to chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  2. To make the chocolate coating, place the coconut oil in a glass bowl. Whisk in the cocoa powder, 5 Sparrows Brand Dark Cocoa Mix, and Stevia, and mix until smooth. 
  3. Form ½” balls with the peanut butter dough and carefully dip each into the chocolate coating mix.
  4. Place the finished balls on a baking sheet lined with wax paper and chill for 1-2 hours.
  5. Enjoy cold! Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator or freezer.
