These naturally sweetened chocolate truffles are made from six simple healthy ingredients that make them really special and utterly delicious. They are raw, vegan and all-natural energy bites that will put a smile on your face even if you don’t like sweets as much. With no added sugar, flour or butter, they are a real treat.
The recipe is quick and easy and it can be your inspiration to make your own Christmas truffles, which you can proudly share with your friends and family.
You can change or add any of the ingredients but my advice is to keep the recipe simple. I used almonds as a nut base, dates, cacao powder and nibs, cashew butter and a dash of cold-pressed coconut oil.
You’ll need a blender or high-speed food processor, a bowl, spatula, and a big smile. Food is our medicine and I believe that the energy we put in the process making is of great importance.
Now off to the kitchen for more recipe inspirations 😉
