Healthy Buckeyes from In Johnna’s Kitchen

Protein Truffles Healthy Buckeyes In Johnna's Kitchen

Most of us are familiar with Buckeyes, which are peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate. These much-loved candies are made to look like the nuts of the buckeye tree by leaving an area of peanut butter ball exposed when dipping in chocolate. Typical buckeye candies are pretty heavy on the sugar factor. Johnna (In Johnna’s Kitchen) decided to create Healthy Buckeyes, which she also calls Protein Truffles. Her treats still taste of indulgence but offer a protein-packed, mostly refined sugar-free option. I love healthy makeovers of classic recipes! The ingredients in Johnna’s recipe are: nut butter or not-nut butter, honey or maple syrup, hemp protein powder or pumpkin seed protein powder, Enjoy Life chocolate chips, and healthy oil (such as coconut oil). This recipe is gluten free, dairy free, egg free, vegan, and paleo friendly.

Holiday Trail Mix from What The Fork Food Blog

Gluten-Free Holiday Trail Mix What the Fork

I hope that all of you reading who celebrate Christmas, as I do, have had a merry one! Chances are you’re not done celebrating yet; that’s a good thing! Like Sharon of What the Fork Food Blog, I always have some holiday parties to attend after Christmas, with a New Year’s Eve “bash” being one of them. Now when it’s a New Year’s bash, I’m referring to a small affair—a simple gathering of a few friends. We’ve never gone in for the really extravagant celebrations to ring in the New Year. So Sharon’s Holiday Trail Mix would be ideal for me—and probably you, too—to make in 5 minutes and take to a party. Well, any party really. A late Christmas affair, a ring-in-the-New-Year fete, or any party throughout the year. We’d actually enjoy these on one of our camping adventures as well.

I know many of you are already excited by the mere notion of this recipe, Coffee Fudge. Coffee in fudge?

(That’s probably why we have a good number of desserts which include coffee (or are made to enjoy with coffee) already here on All Gluten-Free Desserts.)
