I was thinking about Christmas this morning (I know, a little premature, blame the internet, people are already talking about it) and wanted to find something delicious and chocolatey that I can make for Christmas Eve/Day that my dad can enjoy.
Being vegan, for extreme health reasons, finding chocolate goodies that he can share with us can sometimes be a little tricky.
Then I came across these bad boys! I think they’re a winner 🙂
Almond Butter Cocoa Truffles
1 cup dates
1/3 cup almond butter
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1/8 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup chopped nuts
– Combine dates, almond butter, chia seeds and vanilla in a food processor and pulse until it forms a large ball
– Form into 8 small balls by rolling mixture between hands
– Spread cocoa powder on a plate and roll balls in powder, then in nuts.
– Refrigerate and serve cold (Makes approx 8)
Christmas, here we come!
