IMG_0267

Amy:

For the second ball of Christmas, I’d like to offer you….these delicious sunflower seed butter truffles!  These are a non-nut alternative for those with sensitivities or allergies to nuts.  But believe me….peanut butter balls are dang tasty too!  Feel free to swap out for whatever nut or seed butter you have on hand.  The earthy sunflower taste, balanced with honey and chocolate is madly addictive!  The beauty of it all?  Simple ingredients.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup sunflower seed butter or other nut/seed butter

2-3 tbsp honey

3-4 tbsp oat bran or finely processed oats or ground flaxseed

1/2 cup chocolate chips or good quality chocolate

1 tsp coconut oil

Directions:

1. Mix together sunflower butter, honey and oat bran until well combined and dough-like.  Roll dough into 1 inch balls, set aside on parchment paper. Wet hands if too sticky.

2. Melt chocolate chips and coconut oil on the stove or in the microwave.  Using a fork, coat each ball in chocolate and allow excess to drip off.  Place on parchment paper.  Freeze for about 10 minutes until chocolate is hardened.

3. Store in the fridge or freezer.
