Skinny Peanut Butter Truffles

Skinny Peanut Butter Truffles #healthy #dessert #candy #party
 Remember that time when I made you Skinny Caramel Truffles? I surprised you all with my secret ingredient. That was fun ;)
Well, today I am at it again. This time though, I am using peanut butter. I know! Now you may be thinking: How are these skinny? Doesn’t peanut butter have a lot of calories? My answer? Yes. But if you are using good peanut butter it is actually healthy! Full of protein and fiber! They are good calories, so there’s no guilt, mmmkay?
The sweetness in these truffles comes from a banana – NO SUGAR, so these are practically a meal. A healthy meal!

Skinny Peanut Butter Truffles
by: Back For Seconds
  • 1 cup finely ground Fiber One cereal
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2-1 ripe banana
  • 12 oz dark, milk, or white chocolate
  • sprinkles (optional)
In a food processor grind the cereal as finely as possible. Add in the peanut butter and 1/2 banana and pulse until it all comes together. If it seems a bit dry add in more banana. I did not add any sugar and me and my 3 year old could not stop eating the “dough”. If you want it sweeter go ahead and add a little sugar – just keep in mind you are dunking them in chocolate, so they will get a little more sweetness from that. Roll the dough into balls and lay them on a cookie sheet. Freeze for about 30 minutes. Melt chocolate and dunk each truffle completely. Scoop them out of the chocolate with a fork and tap it on the side of the bowl to remove excess chocolate.  Add sprinkles immediately. Store at room temperature for up to 24 hours. Refrigerate or freeze for longer shelf life. Best served at room temp!

    Making these right now! The peanut butter mix was so simple! They are currently in the freezer awaiting chocolate. Can’t wait to taste them with the chocolate. I noticed as I was rolling them into balls, a lot of oil was coming out of the peanut butter. I think I may have spun them in the processor too much??? But they still taste great (so far without the chocolate) can’t wait for the finished product!

    I am trying these tonight righ now as we speak! Yay they look delicious. I can’t wait to dunk them and eat one. My only issue I had was they were very oily as I was rolling them into the balls. My thoughts… maybe I spun them to much in the processor trying to get the banana to mix? Anyway, SIMPLY BRILLIANT IDEA!!!!

    They look delicious AND pretty! I thought they’d be a little complicated to make, but it sounds pretty easy.

    Cereal in Canada is CRAZY expensive…what would you substitute for the Fiber One cereal that is cheaper but still tasty and low-calorie?

    • says

      Aw bummer! I’m not sure what to suggest that isn’t cereal…How about reduced fat graham crackers? I don’t know how those price in Canada, and I haven’t tried them in this recipe, but I would think they would work! Let me know if you try them :)

    Is the 1 cup measurement of Fiber One BEFORE or AFTER grinding? Thanks
