These Salted Chocolate Almond Butter Balls are so easy to make and are an all-time favorite of mine. They are an easy grain free dessert. These Salted Chocolate Almond Butter Balls are gluten free, grain free, dairy free, soy free, egg free, and peanut free. They are also vegan friendly and paleo.

Time for a cliche food blogger back story before I share this easy grain free dessert recipe. These Almond Butter Balls have a very special place in my heart. A lot of you probably don’t know that prior to, Eat or Drink was a physical business. I was creating and packaging baked goods in my home and selling them to a local grocery store. It was very fun and exciting selling my treats like that. I loved knowing that people were able to enjoy my treats. These Salted Chocolate Almond Butter Balls were always flying off the shelves.

Why did I stop selling my baked goods like that? There was a lot I didn’t like about that type of business. I didn’t like dealing with packaging or labeling each individual product. I also didn’t like that apart from giving out samples, I never got to engage with my customers. That’s a huge reason I turned to the online world. With I’m able to share recipes and then actually talk to you guys through comments, messages, Instagram, and Facebook. Instead of just pushing out a product I get to help you guys become the best bakers/cooks you can be. I love engaging with my followers and when you’re just selling a product you don’t get very much of that.

So that’s the story behind my Salted Chocolate Almond Butter Balls. I’ve wanted to share this recipe with you guys for so long and I’m shocked I’m just now getting around to it. The center of these almond butter balls tastes just like a peanut butter cookie (but almond instead of peanut of course). These are the perfect easy grain free dessert. I ate this whole batch in 2 days. They’re that good.
