Buckeyes are a delicious dessert if you are a peanut butter and chocolate lover! They are simple to make and easy to enjoy.
Here are the ingredients that you need to gather:
- 1 medium apple
- 1/2 cup almond butter the drizzly kind
- 2 large eggs
- 6 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract optional
- 5 tbsp peanut powder think PB2
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips (any brand will work)
Here are the instructions you need to follow to make this recipe:
The first step is to preheat the oven to 350F.
Next, you need to dice up the apple. Using either a microwave or the stovetop, heat it up until it’s soft. This is about 3 minutes in the microwave or 4-5 minutes on the stovetop on medium high heat.
If you use the stove, you need to add 1 tbsp of water to help steam the apple pieces a bit to prevent them from sticking. Remove them from the heat at this point.
In a small blender, combine the cooked apple, almond butter, eggs, maple syrup, vanilla, baking soda, salt and peanut powder. Blend all of the ingredients together until a smooth batter forms.
Next, you need to fully grease a mini muffin tin. Pour the batter about 3/4 the way up each muffin slot but make sure you don’t overfill the slots and give them some space to rise.
Then insert 1-2 chocolate chips in the middle of each muffin. Use a toothpick to gently press the chocolate chips down into the middle of the muffin until it fully disappears. This helps ensure it will fully bake in the center without coming out of the top or bottom of the batter. You can tap the baking sheet on the counter to help them sink even more.
Bake at 350F for 16-18 minutes. Remove and let them cool before serving to friends or eating them all at once!
