Ok, I have to admit, it should only be prepared by people who don’t tend to get addicted! I’m not kidding, these little balls are absolutely dangerous and super fast gone… 😉 Super delicious and right out of the freezer a real culinary delight for your morning cappuccino or iced coffee. They remind me a bit of Giotto but are much healthier, and thanks to the peanut butter small protein bliss balls! Plus, you get lots of good fats!

Instead of sugar or syrup, I use erythritol. Erythritol is a bit sweeter than sugar per gram but has no calories nor taste. More will follow soon on my blog. You can also use some stevia or xylitol as a sweetener as well.

As an alternative to erythritol, you can also use about 40 g of agave syrup. But then you should omit the coconut oil and use a little more amaranth, otherwise, they are too sticky. You can also mix some shredded coconut or a little cocoa powder. Play around with your ingredients to see what works and what doesn’t. You can replace the cinnamon with vanilla aroma or use a vanilla pod. There’s no limit to your creativity!

Try to use peanut butter with just one ingredient: peanuts! Usually, peanut butter has other ingredients besides sugar and is not that natural. Check the labels to be sure not to buy some crap.

I like to enjoy my amaranth-peanut butter balls cold from the freezer or fridge. But I have to admit that they really don’t survive for a long time because they are way too delicious. How and when do you like them best?
