Chocolate Peanut Butter Coconut Balls

"These Peanut Butter Coconut Balls are a healthy snack or dessert option. Made with coconut flour, oats, chocolate, and peanut butter, these chocolate coconut balls are gluten-free and full of fiber, protein, and flavor. These energy balls have been KEY for easy road trip snacks. I love chocolate and this combination is just delicious, and has so many benefits; No Bake – Since they don’t require any baking, they come together super quick! Healthy no-bake snacks are our favorites. Fudgey – This isn’t my first chocolate peanut butter rodeo – these peanut butter energy balls with coconut are extra fudgey. Filling – Carbs, fat, and protein make these peanut butter coconut energy balls extra filling! Gluten-Free – Got a gluten allergy or intolerance? Coconut flour is gluten-free, and make sure to use certified gluten-free oats! Great for meal prep – They are also a PERFECT snack for meal prep, adults and kids alike. Notes: - Make sure to use certified gluten-free oats (if you need them to be gluten-free). - If the mixture seems too dry or dense after processing, you can add 1-2 tablespoons of almond milk, as needed to smooth them up. - Also, I recommend letting them firm up in the fridge for 30 minutes or so. It makes rolling them a lot easier and they will stick together better. - Believe me, the hardest part about making these chocolate coconut energy balls is waiting to eat them! "
