I have had many requests for my recipe for these absolutely mouthwatering yet healthy (who knew there could be such a thing) orange chocolate truffles. They are made with naturally wholesome ingredients and are free from gluten, dairy and refined sugar – making them entirely guilt-free ;)
If you can resist from accidently eating the whole batch at once, then kudos to you!
1 cup almond meal
10 medjool dates
1/2 cup raw cacao powder + a little more for coating
zest of one orange
juice of one orange
In a food processor, blend the almond meal, dates, cacao powder and orange zest to form a flour-like mixture. Add the orange juice and continue to process until the mixture starts coming together like a dough.
Using your hands, roll into bite-size balls (your hands may get a little sticky here).
To finish, coat the truffles by gently rolling the balls in the remaining cacao powder before transferring to a plate.
Best to refrigerate for a few hours before consuming but you won’t want to!
