Dietitian and author Frances Largeman Roth makes one of her favorite nutrient-rich treats: energy truffles. This recipes uses sunflower butter, which is a completely nut-free option that can be used instead of peanut or other nut butters. Energy truffles are a wonderful and healthy protein alternative to snacks laden with sugar such as granola or candy bars.

Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients

  • 1 cup puffed rice
  • ⅓ cup sunflower butter, at room temperature
  • ¾ cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • ½ cup puffed millet
  • ⅓ cup semisweet chocolate chips (or carob chips)
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
  • ½ cup sesame seeds

Instructions

In a large bowl, toss together the puffed millet, puffed rice, and sesame seeds. Add the chocolate chips. Stir in the sunflower butter and maple syrup. You should have a nice sticky mess at this point! Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Place the coconut in a small bowl. Using a tablespoon, scoop the mixture and form it into 1-inch balls with your hands. Roll the balls in coconut and transfer to a container. You can store the truffles in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or in the freezer in a zip-top freezer bag for up to 1 month. Makes about 25 truffles
