Healthy Energy Truffles

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.

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 cup dried cranberries

2 cups of peanut butter (1 jar @ 500g)

1/2 cup of honey

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.

    • Thank you Brandi! You are right they would be awesome with maple syrup too or agave.
      They taste so good that I will be making them again and again and again ……… 🙂
      I think they would also be really fantastic with almond butter or cashew butter too.

  1. Yum! Further proof it’s time that I make something like this … these gorgeous treats are the final straw! These look so yummy, not to mention simple! Thanks Anne!

  2. This is such a simple, healthy, and tasty recipe! I’ll make it regularly, may skip chocolate chips for myself. Thank you so, so much, Anne!

  3. mmmm they looks similar to the ones i made at Christmas really good texture. i would use agave instead of honey being vegan though.. i have to try these 🙂

    • These would be just as delicious with agave!
      I hope you get a change to make these – they are so good!
      Did you blog about the ones you made at Christmas?
