  1. Line a rimmed baking sheet pan with parchment paper; set aside. Make room in the freezer to hold the pan.
  2. In a large bowl beat the peanut butter, butter and vanilla with an electric mixer until smooth and very well combined. Slowly beat in the confectioners’ sugar until smooth. Roll into 1-inch (2.5 cm) balls and place on prepared pan. Freezer for about 30 minutes, or until firm. They should hold their round shape when handled.
  3. Melt chocolate in top of double boiler or microwave; stir until smooth and place in a bowl that allows some depth to the chocolate. Insert a toothpick about halfway into a peanut butterball and dip it about halfway into the melted chocolate. (Use images to guide you). Lift up and allow excess chocolate to drip back into the bowl. Place dipped ball back on the parchment-lined sheet pan. Repeat with all of the peanut butter balls. Refrigerate to harden chocolate, then moisten a finger and use it to smooth out toothpick holes. Keep refrigerated in single layers in an airtight container until serving, up to 4 days. You can serve them cold or at room temperature.



FODMAP Information

Our recipes are based on Monash University and FODMAP Friendly science.

  • Chocolate: Monash University has lab tested dark, milk and white chocolate all have low FODMAP amounts: 85% dark at 20 g; dark at 30 g; milk at 20 g; white at 25 g.
  • Sugar: Monash University and FODMAP Friendly have both lab tested white, granulated sugar. Monash states that a Green Light low FODMAP serving size of white sugar is 1/4 cup (50 g). FODMAP Friendly simply states that they have tested 1 tablespoon and that it is low FODMAP. Regular granulated white sugar is sucrose, which is a disaccharide made up of equal parts glucose and fructose. Sucrose is broken down and absorbed efficiently in the small intestine.

Please always refer to the Monash University & FODMAP Friendly smartphone apps for the most up-to-date lab tested information. As always, your tolerance is what counts; please eat accordingly. The ultimate goal of the low FODMAP diet is to eat as broadly as possible, without triggering symptoms, for the healthiest microbiome.
