Healthy Peanut Butter Truffles

Thursday, May 14, 2015

I have been thinking about chocolate truffles for a while now and I couldn't believe that they were so easy to make! I am a big fan of Dana and John who have a food blog called Minimalist Baker. I'm sure you have all heard about it. Her simple and delicious recipes inspired me to make some raw peanut butter truffles. I changed the recipe a bit to suit my taste and I think they came out pretty good for a first try. They are so simple, healthy and filling! 

  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 4 tablespoons shredded coconut
  • 3 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
  • a handful of crushed peanuts
  • dark chocolate for dipping

  • Before making the truffle mixture, crush a handful of peanuts in a food processor
  • In a large bowl, combine the ingredients - peanut butter, honey, shredded coconut and peanuts
  • Roll little 3cm balls with your hands
  • Place them on a tray/small plate/container and freeze for 25 to 30 minutes
  • Melt the chocolate and set aside to cool down 
  • Take the peanut butter balls out of the freezer and use a fork to dip them into the melted chocolate
  • Place them on a plate/tray and cool in the fridge for 2 hours before serving
