Christmas Cookies: Candy Cane Balls

Recipe Type: Christmas Cookies
Author: Michelle from Find Your Balance
Special Note from the author: I’ve had many people make this recipe with success, and a few who had their balls come out like puddles instead. To eliminate extra liquid, make sure to use refrigerated peanut butter instead of the natural stuff that’s super runny when it’s new out of the jar.
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup mashed overripe banana (about 2 small bananas)
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 Tbl. pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 4 drops peppermint essential oil
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened dried coconut
  • 1/2 cup raw cacao nibs
  • Except for cacao, mix everything together in a bowl. Roll into walnut-sized balls, then roll each ball in cacao.
  • Refrigerate overnight to set. Makes about 1 dozen balls.
