PBJ Truffles

chocolate balls

I love peanut butter and raspberry jam but…

I was getting pretty tired of the standard PBJ on toast, so I created these yummy & nutritious 2-bite ball snacks.  They freeze well and even keep in the fridge for weeks, although trust me, they wont last!  These do come with a warning label though, as they are highly addictive!

Makes 12 balls

Ingredients

1/2 cup peanut butter (you can use other butters, the flavour will change a bit but will still be delicious!)

2-3 drops Lakanto vanilla sugar-free liquid drops https://rawelements.ca (Use CODE: food4u to get 10% off everything)

1 tbsp maple syrup

1 tbsp ground flax

1 tbsp maca powder, gelatinized for better absorption

1 tbsp molasses (great source of iron)

1 tbsp raw cacao (high antioxidant & magnesium)

1/2 tsp turmeric

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp sea salt

3 tbsp raspberry jam or 1/3 cup fresh raspberries

Directions

  1. Place all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and mix well.
  2. Take a 1 tbsp measuring spoon and scoop out a little less, start rolling into a ball and place in a container.  They are now ready to freeze or refrigerate, but you might want to try one, or two, or a few 🙂
