“The Best Ever” Almond Butter Buckeyes

(makes 20 pieces)


  • 1/2 c. butter, softened
  • 3/4 c. raw almond butter**
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • pinch of celtic sea salt
  • 1/2 c. powdered xylitol
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, optional

chocolate coating:

  • 1/2 c. coconut oil
  • 1/4 c. raw cacao powder
  • pinch of celtic sea salt
  • stevia to taste


  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine xylitol/cinnamon with butter, almond butter, vanilla extract, and salt and mix on medium speed until well incorporated.
  2. Use a small scoop, or form balls in your hand, and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Freeze for about 20 minutes.
  3. In the meantime, put coconut oil in a small pan and melt. Add the rest of the ingredients (add stevia a little at a time) and stir well. Let cool. Remove baking sheet from freezer and dip the centers in the coating. Put back in freezer for about 5 minutes.
  4. Repeat 2 more times to make a nice coating. Store in freezer.

**you can replace this with an allowed nut butter of choice; but be aware it may change the flavor.
