Healthier Vegan Buckeyes

I did go to THE Ohio State University for undergrad, so it’s only appropriate that I come out with a buckeyes recipe, even if it is 6 years later lol. Buckeyes have long been a favorite of mine and really are a perfect and easy-to-make sweet treat. I made a better for you version with real + minimal ingredients that requires ten minutes of your time.

I highly recommend adding some sea salt to the top if you are a fan of the sweet + salty combo. sea salt seems to very much enhance the flavor of the chocolate and peanut butter! also, if you’re not a peanut butter fan, make a swap for almond butter, cashew butter, sunflower seed butter or even tahini.
