Chocolate (Cacao) Vegan Recipes

Paleo Buckeyes (Vegan & Gluten Free)

This recipe was inspired by The Big Mans World website. To all of my Ohioans, this tastes like Buckeyes! I’ve prepared this with both almond butter and peanut butter. Both are delicious, but I do prefer the taste of the peanut butter a little more. Let me know what you think!


Dough Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond or peanut butter
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp pumpkin puree
  • ½ Tbsp pumpkin spice
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 Tbsp coconut flour


Chocolate Coating Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 tsp coconut oil (optional)
  • ½ tsp Pink Himalayan Sea Salt (optional)



  • Blend all dough ingredients together. I used a Food Processor for this.
  • Roll batter into small balls & place on parchment paper.
  • Place in fridge x 3-4 hours. Or Freezer x 2 hrs.
  • Optional- melt chocolate chips over low heat with coconut oil. Use a toothpick and coat the balls with chocolate & place back onto parchment paper. You can sprinkle pink Himalayan sea salt on top of them. Place back in the fridge for 1-2 hours.




  • If batter is too thin, add more coconut flour. If it’s too crumbly, add in a small amount of water or maple syrup.
  • The chocolate coating is optional. They’re really good
  • Store in fridge or freezer.


JUST EAT REAL FOOD – Stop focusing on calories & focus on what you’re eating and how it makes you feel. Your body is always giving you signals, but many times we ignore them. Pay attention if you develop nausea, gas, bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, headaches, joint pain, rashes, sinus problems, or cold sores. If you develop any of these things after eating, it’s a good indicator that your body is giving you a clue to stop consuming something in your food. Many times these symptoms come from consuming chemicals, artificial coloring, and preservatives. Other times these symptoms can occur from a food allergy or sensitivity. Pay attention. Creating a food diary is a really great way to help you figure out what your triggers are. Food elimination diets are a great way to figure out what your triggers are.
