In a large bowl, cream together the almond butter, maple syrup and coconut oil using an electric hand mixer until very smooth.
Stir in the almond flour, salt and vanilla and mix well. Chill the mixture in the freezer for 30 minutes or until firm enough to roll into balls.
Roll into one inch balls (about 22-25) and place on a parchment or wax paper-lined baking sheet. Put a toothpick in each one for easier dipping then place back in the freezer for 30 minutes.
While they're freezing, make your dipping chocolate. If using chocolate chips or chopped chocolate, simply place in a microwavable bowl and melt on increments of 30 seconds, stirring in between, until fully melted.
If you're making the keto version of these healthy buckeyes, melt the coconut oil, vanilla, salt, unsweetened cocoa powder and your favorite sugar substitute in a medium bowl and set aside.
Once balls are firm, remove from freezer and carefully dip each one in the chocolate and coat about 2/3 of the way as shown in the photos. Place back on the baking sheet and repeat for all. Once done, refrigerate or freeze until firm and serve right away.
