Easy Snack Balls
Low-carb, sugar-free, THM:S, Gluten/Egg free
Serves: 30-40 balls
  • 2 cups unsweetened finely-shredded coconut flakes (you could probably use regular coconut flakes as well but the balls might be more crumbly)
  • 1 cup crushed nuts of choice (we like peanuts or almonds)
  • ½ cup old-fashioned oats (use gluten free if necessary)
  • ½ cup sunflower seeds
  • ¼ cup oat fiber (use gluten free if necessary)
  • ¼ cup ground golden flax
  • 2 T cocoa powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • ⅛ tsp. (4 doonks) THM Pure Stevia Extract Powder (adjust the sweetener level to your liking; some may like it sweeter)
  • 2 packets of Truvia (1½ tsp.) or ¾ tsp. THM Super Sweet Blend
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
  • 1 cup natural peanut butter
  • Splash of vanilla extract
  • 2 T water (enough to make the dough moldable)
  1. In a large mixing bowl, stir all the dry ingredients together until evenly mixed. Melt the butter and mix it with the peanut butter and vanilla extract. Pour this into the dry ingredients and add as much water as you need to make the dough fairly moldable; mix it all together with your hands. Use a rounded tablespoon cookie scoop to portion the dough and then roll it into balls with your hands. Place on a cookie sheet and freeze till firm. Store in the freezer.
  2. I recommend keeping your serving size on these limited to two balls/meal since they are fairly calorie-dense.
½ cup of oats spread among 35 balls puts the carbs from the oats at less than 1 gram per ball.
If you don't have oat fiber or ground golden flax, you could try substituting some almond or coconut flours, more coconut, more nuts, more seeds, etc. Having some flour in there gives a smoother texture and helps things stick together better, though.
