Reese's are one of the most popular candies on the market, but one of the most densely caloric. All of that chocolate and peanut butter may taste good, but offers none of the nutrition needed to sustain your body.

But, there's an easier way to get this candy taste with one of the most popular super foods on the planet: chia seeds! These no-bake chia seed truffles have less fat and sugar than the traditional candy, but have added fiber and protein. Seems like a fair trade to me.

    Add chia seeds to the mixture in the same bowl, one tablespoon at a time. Be careful not to add too many seeds, as an excess of seeds will suck up all of the liquids in the rest of the recipe.

    Add chocolate chips to the mixture. The amount of chocolate chips added to the mixture will depend on the size of the chips available (ex. you may need more mini chocolate chips than regular sized chocolate chips).
