“Naturally Sweetened” Cocoa-Peanut Butter Bites

These little cocoa-peanut butter bites are a great snack. Stored in the freezer, you can grab one anytime you feel like it. And the great thing is that they are naturally sweet, with no added sugar or sweeteners. For a special touch, roll them in finely shredded unsweetened coconut before freezing.

  • 1 cup crunchy Valencia peanut butter
  • 2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 3 Tablespoons freshly ground flax seed
  • dash salt, or to taste
  • finely shredded coconut, if desired (for rolling balls in, to coat)

In a medium bowl, mash the banana; stir in the peanut butter, cocoa powder and ground flax until very thick. If desired add just a little dash of salt (to taste) and stir in well.

Immediately roll mixture into small balls. (I like to use a little cookie scooper.)

Place balls on a parchment paper lined tray or plate (one that will fit easily in your freezer). Now is the time to roll them in the shredded coconut, if using.

Place in freezer for at least 2 hours. Transfer to a sealed container, or Ziploc bag, and keep stored in freezer until serving.

Makes about 2-dozen.

  1. These were very easy to make. My 9yo made them with no supervision from me (only her 13yo sister). They were good, but they weren’t really sweet at all. Do you think honey could be added? Or some other sweetener?

    • These are not supposed to be overly sweet. Just lightly so. But if you desire so you could add honey or other sweeteners as you see fit.

      Everyone’s tolerance of sugar is different. In our family we do not consume very much sugar, so these foods taste fine for us.

      Every 8 to 12 months we go on a “healing fast”, which contains only protein, dairy, animal fats, and vegetables. This resets our bodies to be Fat burners (which is what God intended us to be) instead of Sugar burners (which is what the Standard American Diet is based upon). You can read more about our Diet & Lifestyle.

      Sugar (even natural ones) cause inflammation in the body. To read more about this I’d recommend the book – “Sugar Blues” by William Dufty
