paleo peanut butter truffles

Paleo peanut butter truffles are sweetened with dried fruit and simply delicious.

I’m doing the happy dance as I scarf down my 3rd no-sugar-added peanut butter truffle!  These truffles satisfy my sweet tooth and showcase a decent amount of protein and fiber!  Thanks to a secret ingredient (pssst…flax seeds) these little gems are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids as well. Hello sexy body, long hair, and gorgeous skin…and chocolate! You need 6 ingredients…let me rephrase that; you ONLY need 6 ingredients to whip up these delicious treats!
