Do you know what buckeyes are? I made some healthy buckeyes for you! Buckeyes are a dessert that originates in Ohio. According to Wikipedia, the buckeye candy resembles the buckeye tree, which is the state tree in Ohio. I am not from Ohio and have only driven through it a couple times. However, I have had buckeye candy in the past. Basically, it’s a peanut butter fudge which is covered almost entirely in chocolate. You can’t really go wrong when you think about peanut butter and fudge right? Well traditional buckeyes are made from powdered sugar and other processed ingredients. Not mine! All you need is 4 ingredients to make my version. If you like recipes with minimal ingredients, you may also like this post with 20 healthy dessert recipes with 5 ingredients or less.
You guys! This recipe is seriously easy to make! The balls themselves have no added sugar. The chocolate chips contain a little. Not much when you think of how thin the layer of chocolate around the ball is. These healthy buckeyes are vegan, gluten free and grain free. I hope you enjoy them. As you read this, I am on my way to Florida for my family’s first real vacation together ever. My husband and I never even got a honeymoon, so this trip is huge for us! We are super excited to be able to take the kids to Disney. Why am I telling you this? Just to let you know that it may take me a little longer than usual to answer any questions/comments you may have. During the time that I am gone, I do have several guest posts lined up, so stay tuned. In the meantime, I plan to be posting a little about our trip on Instagram. Feel free to follow along. Onto the recipe.
