Peanut Butter Honey Truffles

I'm a grazer when I am at home (the first step is admitting you have a problem, right?) so I keep little to no snack foods, e.g. chips, candy, pretzels, etc, at home because I will eat them and gain weight (definitely not needed!).  However, I do snack on dark chocolate and cheese and peanut butter and whatever I am making for Ben for dinner (sometimes it's the dangerous pasta or mashed potatoes.... but mostly on the meat/veggies I make for him).  I also notice that I get a 'sweet' craving around that time of day.

{Delicious peanut butter honey truffles!}

I saw a recipe for peanut butter honey truffles on one of my favorite blogs, The Shiksa, and knew I had to try it as a snack.  ;o)  Luckily, it is packed with protein and hits that sweet craving right on the head in a single truffle (for me at least).  Plus they are easy to make!  Ben LOVES these; in fact, I wouldn't be surprised if he is eating the rest of them right now ( he LOVES peanut butter--almost too much!).

Peanut Butter Honey Truffles

Makes 30 truffles


1 cup oats
12 oz jar of natural peanut butter
1/2 cup honey
1/2 tablespoon vanilla
2 cups dried shredded coconut
  1. Grind the oats in a food processor until powdery like flour.
  2. In a mixing bowl, mix together the oat flour, peanut butter, honey, and vanilla until thoroughly mixed.
  3. Grind the coconut in a food processor until cut into smaller pieces or powdery.
  4. Roll peanut butter mixture into 1 inch balls.
  5. Roll each ball in dried coconut to coat.
  6. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before service.
I bought coconut flakes and didn't grind them more, but I wish I did.  They are still awesome though, and I will defeinitely do it next time.

What do you like to snack on?
