- Makes 20 buckeyes
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 2 Tablespoons of maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- A pinch of salt
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips
- 1 Tablespoon coconut oil
- 2 scoops Detox Organics powder
Mix the peanut butter, coconut flour, vanilla, maple syrup and salt together until a cookie dough consistency is formed.
Scoop out with a cookie dough scooper and roll into a ball. Place on a plate and chill in the freezer for 30 minutes. Melt chocolate chips and coconut oil in the microwave for 1 minute. Add in the Detox Organics and stir to combine.
Using a fork, place a buckeye into the melted chocolate and tap the fork to remove excess chocolate. Use a toothpick to slide back onto the plate and store in the freezer to harden until ready to eat!
