DATE AND COCOA TRUFFLES- CLEAN EATING

Can you tell I am having sugar/candy withdrawal?  I am. Seriously, it hasn't been easy eliminating refined sugar from my diet. It has been two weeks and with the help of honey, I have made it!  

I have also rediscovered dates and have a new found love for them and their natural sweetness. 

This recipe is great when you are in a bind for a chocolate fix or a sweet treat and want something healthier than a typical refined sugary treat. After a few failed recipes today...chococado (chocolate pudding made with avocado) and chia smoothie (disgusting), I was overjoyed when I made something that I LOVED and both my kids loved. We snacked on them after school and ate them up like candy!
  
Date and Cocoa Truffles- CLEAN EATING
Adapted from Chimayie's
Makes about 10-15 truffles

10-15 good quality soft dates
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder + more to roll the truffles in
1-2 tablespoons of olive oil/coconut oil/rum/vanilla/honey (optional)

De-seed the dates and process in food processor with cocoa powder until a smooth paste is formed. If it’s too hard (depends on your dates) use a bit of oil/rum/honey to help it come together. I used 1 Tablespoon of coconut oil.



Once done, scoop out a small amount with a spoon and roll it between your palms to make truffles.
If you feel the mix is too sticky, refrigerate for 15-30 minutes or rub coconut oil on your palms.

Roll them in unsweetened cocoa and store in an air-tight container.

These didn't last a day in my house...so good!
We had a snowy adventure outside today. I let him take the lead...the snow was up to his little knees, but he pushed through and managed to cover almost every area of the yard.

This squirrel was determined; he found the bird seed about 7 inches under the snow.
