truffles2These healthy truffles are a surefire way to satisfy your chocolate craving. They are grain-free, gluten-free and vegan with no refined sugars (well maybe a just little in the chocolate ;)). I decided to add a few extra ingredients to make them even more delicious. Almond (or any nut butter), salt, cinnamon and vanilla balance out the sweetness and give it an extra edge.
truffles1I was recently in California (hence the TJ’s theme here) and couldn’t resist the fresh local medjool dates at the College of the Desert Market in Palm Springs. I normally use medjool dates to make chocolate turtles with pecans, but I was looking for something a little different this time. I came across this recipe from Running With Spoons. Thanks Amanda for all of your recipe inspiration!!IMG_7183Roll out the date balls and place on a parchment paper lined trayIMG_7185Dip in melted chocolate.IMG_7187IMG_7186IMG_7195IMG_7201
