Low-FODMAP Chocolate Peanut Butter Crisp Balls Recipe; Gluten-free, Vegan

Although this recipe has not been tested, a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients.

Yields: 36 balls

Serving size up to 3 balls

Prep time: 30 minutes plus extra time for chilling between steps (up to 12 hours in fridge)


  • 1/4 cup vegan margarine (I like Earth Balance) or unsalted butter for non-vegan version
  • 9 ounces all-natural peanut butter, salted or unsalted (should contain only peanuts and salt)
  • 1 & 3/4 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 & 1/4 cup gluten-free (low-FODMAP) crisped rice cereal
    • Many rice cereals are gluten-free but some contain molasses or honey
    • I used Kellogg’s Gluten-free Rice Krispies
  • 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate


  • Beat vegan spread or butter, peanut butter and sugar in large mixing bowl of stand mixer with flat paddle until creamy
  • Add rice cereal and combine by hand or very slowly with the flat paddle
  • Place bowl in refrigerator and chill until cold (About 45 minutes)
    • You may need to replace in fridge intermittently if it gets difficult to handle
  • Prepare a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper
  • Using a small cookie-scoop or melon baller, form into 1 inch balls and place on baking sheet
    • It helps to keep your hands slightly wet when rolling the balls
  • Place the balls in refrigerator for about 12 hours or overnight
  • In a double boiler, melt chocolate
  • Dip balls into the chocolate and replace on the cookie sheet to refrigerate again until serving
    • I found this link and video helpful in showing the best way to do this!
    • Hint for buckeyes, use a toothpick to dunk about 3/4 of the ball.  Then just smooth over the toothpick mark.  Easy peasy!
  • Best served slightly chilled

  • Delicious.  Absolutely delicious.  These low-FODMAP Peanut Butter Crisp Balls will go fast!
