Chocolate Truffles

 

 

Toddler Friendly Chocolate Truffles

Sometimes that chocolate craving hits and I need something sweet so I like to keep a batch of these beauties in the freezer! Perfect for kids too as they are sweetened with medjool dates and call for cacao powder instead of cocoa powder. I always use cacao powder for a chocolatey flavour as it isn’t roasted and therefore the enzymes in it remain active which means it is nutrient-rich and packed with antioxidants. The almond flour and nut butter add healthy fat and protein to these truffles making them a great snack option when paired with some fruit/veggies!

Cook: 0 mins

Serves: 20 balls

What do you need?

  • ½ cup almond flour

Then...

  1. Add the dates to a blender and blend until smooth, you may need to scrape down the sides.

  3. Scoop out about a tablespoon of dough at a time and roll into balls.
  4. Roll each ball in desiccated coconut.
