Gluten-Free Gold! Four Ingredient Peanut Butter & Honey Truffles

share on:
variety of peanut butter jars

Have I mentioned that I LOVE peanut butter?!  From kindergarten through the twelfth grade I ate a peanut butter sandwich every single day at school (over 2,000 PB sandwiches consumed!). Recently, I discovered an amazing site which pays homage to one of my favorite delicacies.  I truly think the Peanut Butter Boy is my long lost brother (hey, in my family, you never know what other siblings are out there!).

Ahem, moving on…

So, Peanut Butter Boy is hosting “The Great Peanut Butter Exhibition #4 – No Bake”. Oh yeah! No baking AND peanut butter – I am totally feeling this challenge. I immediately thought of a recipe my mom and I used to make when I was little. It’s no-bake, kid-friendly, and is a healthy treat. The original recipe called for wheat germ, however, I’ve substituted flax seed since “wheat is dead to me”. I must also note that I used to call these concoctions Peanut Butter Balls, but I decided to rename the recipe as it just didn’t sound very, uh, nice.

Peanut Butter & Honey Truffles

1 cup DRY milk (I used non-fat)
1/2 cup peanut butter (Crazy Richards Chunky)
1/3 cup honey (local)
1/4 cup ground flax seed (Bob’s Red Mill)

Mix all ingredients together. Form into small balls. Roll balls in coconut, cinnamon & sugar, or cocoa mix.  Refrigerate for 15 minutes and enjoy!

I humbly submit this recipe to my long lost brother’s Peanut Butter Exhibition #4 🙂

  1. Maureen,

    Thanks again for a great laugh! I am not a fellow Celiac but love to read your stories. I may try those PB “Truffles” – since I am a fellow PB&J sandwich eater and love peanut butter! Keep blogging!


  2. Hey sister, these look great and they really stay together with just those ingredients?!? I can’t wait to try these, they’re so healthy yet decadent looking. Do you need to store them in the fridge because of the milk or can they sit out?

  3. Great question about storage! I did some research on the storage of dry milk and it does need to be refrigerated once it is mixed with a liquid. I’d count Honey as a “sticky” liquid, so to err on the safe side, I’d keep them chilled in the fridge.
