Gather and measure the ingredients. Line a baking sheet with wax paper.
In a mixing bowl, add the peanut butter, maple syrup, and coconut flour and mix well to combine.
Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop out the peanut butter mixture and roll with your hands into balls about the size of walnuts.
Place the peanut butter balls in the refrigerator for about an hour to firm up.
You can enjoy the peanut butter balls as is or coat them in chocolate icing.
While the balls are in the refrigerator, melt the chocolate using the method in the post or recipe notes.
Take the peanut butter balls out of the refrigerator and gently dip in the melted chocolate to completely coat the peanut butter balls. Place them back on the wax paper-lined baking sheet.
Put the chocolate-dipped peanut butter balls back into the refrigerator until chocolate hardens, which is usually only about 10 minutes.
Store peanut butter balls in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week, or 3 months in the freezer.
