If you are a chocolate lover like me but don’t want to put on a dress size after treating yourself, then you’ll love these guilt-free chocolate truffles made from solely wholesome and unprocessed ingredients. As a bonus, they’re also free from sugar, gluten and dairy. Super duper easy to make, I find these truffles to be the perfect sugar-hit/study-snack to get me through those long dreaded days at Uni. The recipe makes around 20 truffles and I find that they’re best kept in the fridge. Be careful though, you might just end up accidentally eating the whole batch! X
3/4 cup of almond meal
10 medjool dates
1/4 cup raw cacao powder
1/4 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut + 1/4 cup more for coating
1/4 cup water
Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend for a minute or so until the ingredients begin to stick together (similar to a dough-like mixture).
Use your hands to form small balls.
To finish, coat the balls by rolling them in the remaining coconut.
Refrigerate for a few hours before devouring!
