Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Balls
Super cute and easy gluten-free peanut butter balls are a sweet treat perfect for the fall holidays.


  • 1 1/2 cups gluten-free peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted (dairy-free use Smart Balance or Earth Balance butter)
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • gluten-free red and yellow gluten-free food coloring
  • gluten-free pretzel sticks


  • In a large bowl combine peanut butter, melted butter, pumpkin pie spice and vanilla mix until fully combined with your stand up mixer or hand mixer.
  • Add several drops of the red and yellow food coloring and mix until you get the orange color you want.
  • Add the powdered sugar and mix until fully combined.
  • Scoop out a heaping tablespoon of the peanut butter mixture and form into a ball. (I use my cookie scoop.)
  • Using a toothpick create the dents in the pumpkins.
  • Inserts a piece of the gluten-free pretzel in the center to be the pumpkin's stem.
  • Place on parchment lined cookie sheet, either refrigerate or freeze. (I prefer them to be frozen.)
  • Enjoy!

  1. Audrey,
    My son and I just made these. So easy and a lot of fun!
    I don’t know how you came up with all these recipes, with all your family has been through lately. Best of luck with the storm recovery.

    1. Thank you so much Ginna for the wonderful 5-star recipe review! I made these pumpkin peanut butter balls last year with my kids and they were super fun. We are slowly recovering from the hurricane. We still don’t have an internet connection, so I am having to drive into town to Starbucks or Chick-fil-A to post new recipes to my blog. It’s been a challenge. I’m trying to keep posting one new recipe a week. I really appreciate your kind words. Thank you again!
