When I was a little girl, I have fond memories of my Mom making peanut butter candy. I loved watching her roll the candy in coconut and then wrap each piece in waxed paper. I may have grabbed a few pieces and shoved them in my mouth during this process, but that was the fun part! I have updated her recipe to make it plant-based and a bit more healthy…I like the result. As I took my first bite, I was immediately transported back to my childhood. Peanut butter makes me smile. I think you’ll smile when you give this candy a try too! (Just try not to eat the entire recipe…you may get a serious tummy ache!)
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup honey
1 1/4 – 1 1/2 cups almond flour or hazelnut meal or coconut flour
shredded coconut, chopped nuts, mini chocolate chips, etc.
In medium-size bowl, mix together peanut butter, honey, and almond flour. Mix in enough almond flour to get the right consistency – you want the candy to be firm enough to roll into balls, but not stiff. Measure out a tablespoon of the mixture and roll into a candy ball. Roll each candy ball into desired toppings of choice – my personal favorite is shredded coconut! Store in the refrigerator.
