This recipe is from a very dear and special friend of mine. She suffers from gluten allergy and therefore she is always looking for new and creative ways for eating healthy and gluten-free.
She gave me her recipe here for these “Healthy Energy Truffles” and I just love it. They are easy to make and can be put in the freezer and taken out to enjoy whenever and whereever you need a good healthy snack.
They are full of goodness – seeds, raisins, cranberries, honey and chocolate chips.
Healthy Energy Truffles
1/2 cup toasted sunflower seeds
1/2 cup toasted pumpkin seeds
1 cup toasted sesame seeds
1 cup quinoa flakes
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup of cocoa powder – or 100g dark good quality chocolate
1 cup dried cranberries
2 cups of peanut butter (1 jar @ 500g)
1/2 cup of honey
1 cup of toasted sesame or coconut seeds to roll the truffles in. I used toasted sesame seeds and a bit of pumpkin seeds.
Everything is mixed well together and made into balls the size of a golf ball and finished of by rolling them in toasted sesame/ pumpkin or coconut. Keep what you need in the fridge and freeze the rest.
