When it comes to healthy snacks, you often think of fruit, raw food or crackers. But did you know that you can make delicious snacks with very little effort? Enjoy these carrot-date truffles over several days as this recipe makes 8 to 10 balls, which you can easily store in the fridge. Peanut butter provides a high-level of satiety, so two truffles as a snack is more than enough. Did we mention that they're really good? The carrot and honey add sweetness while the peanut butter makes them nice and creamy, and the puffed quinoa adds just the right amount of crunch. Can't find puffed quinoa? Substitute walnuts (3 tablespoons) instead. Grind them first in a blender or use a pestle and mortar.
- Chop the dates finely in a food processor.
- Then mix the dates with the rest of the ingredients and roll into small balls.
- If you like coconut, you can roll the truffles through desiccated coconut.
- Store the truffles in a sealed container in the fridge until ready to eat (they stay fresh for about 3-4 days).
