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!
