  • To a small mixing bowl, add almond flour, peanut butter, maple syrup, and sea salt. Use a spatula or spoon to totally combine collectively. If it appears too moist to deal with, add extra almond flour. If it appears too dry, add extra peanut butter.

  • As soon as the entire eggs are fashioned, place the baking sheet or plate into the freezer and freeze for at the very least quarter-hour.
