4 Ingredient Healthy Buckeyes (Vegan)

4 Ingredient Healthy Buckeyes. 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 I have only driven through it a couple times.

However, I have had buckeye candy and it’s delicious! So I had to create a healthier version.

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.


Healthy Buck Eyes - My Whole Food Life


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.

These flourless peanut butter muffins are so good.  They are vegan, gluten free, egg free, grain free and dairy free.

You can even keep them paleo by using sunflower butter or almond butter.  I used peanut butter in this recipe because my husband loves it.

I do think these muffins would be fabulous with almond butter though.  One thing I have to point out is that these flourless muffins have a slightly different texture than traditional muffins made with flour.

I think they are totally delicious, though.

Peanut Butter Pie (Vegan and Gluten Free)

Peanut Butter Pie.  I am a huge fan of all nut butters.  My whole cookbook is dedicated to them.  Personally almond butter is my favorite, but my husband’s favorite is peanut butter.

He just loves the stuff.  So I created this super easy peanut butter pie for him as well as you peanut butter lovers out there!


Peanut Butter Pie - My Whole Food Life P


This peanut butter vegan pie has 3 layers. A nut and coconut crust, creamy peanut butter mousse filling, and chocolate ganache on top.

It’s super rich and decadent.  It wouldn’t take much to satisfy your sweet tooth.  Just a small slice will do.

Since this recipe is rather rich and  decadent, I would reserve it for those days when you want to splurge a little.  Not an everyday treat. 🙂

If you didn’t want to use chocolate chips for the top layer, you can use the 3 ingredient chocolate recipe in this video.  For more videos, you can subscribe to my You Tube Channel.
