Chocolate Truffles

This is an awesome treat! It’s so rich in chocolate and it’s refined sugar,gluten, diary and nut free. I make these and stick them in the freezer for when I need my chocolate fix.

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup pepitas
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • Pinch of salt
  • 8 pitted dates

Directions:

  1. Soak the dates in boiling water till soft.
  2. Drain the dates and keep the date water aside.
  3. Blend the cocoa powder, pepitas and sunflower seeds in a food processor or blender.
  4. Add the desiccated coconut and salt and blend again.
  5. Add the dates and blend untill a ball forms.
  6. Add roughly 1/4 cup of the date water to make the dough sticky.
  7. Roll into balls and roll in some nuts or coconut for decoration.
  8. Enjoy!
