  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Add almond flour, arrowroot starch, and salt to a medium bowl. Whisk ingredients to combine.
  • Add peanut butter, maple syrup, and vanilla to dry ingredients. Stir mixture until dough forms.
  • Use a tablespoon to scoop dough and roll into balls. Place balls on cookie sheet in rows. Transfer to the freezer and freeze for 20 minutes.
  • While peanut butter balls are chilling, melt chocolate chips and coconut oil in a small microwavable bowl for 30 second intervals. Stir after each interval until almost all chips are melted. Then stir until completely melted.
  • Remove peanut butter balls from freezer. Use a toothpick (or fork) to dip each ball in the melted chocolate, leaving a top circle uncovered so that the peanut butter is showing. Allow excess chocolate to drip off and transfer back to cookie sheet. Continue until all balls have been dipped.
  • Place cookie sheet with buckeyes in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or until chocolate is set.
  • Store buckeyes in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator.
