Okay guys, ready for a super easy healthy dessert?
Dessert, Mid-day snack, ya know whatever works! Dates also are a great healthy source of energy.
Ive made them a couple different ways, and you can really coat them in whatever toppings you like.
vanilla protein powder, oats, and cocoa powder coatings pictured below
Confession time, I always see this BIG box of dates at Costco for such a great deal but never bought them becuase
I had NO IDEA what to make with dates? I immediatly thought of prunes, and the idea of making a prune dessert just
totally grossed me out HA! So I did some research (aka stalked pinterest for a couple of hours) and realized
Dates are an awesome NATURAL form of energy and super sweet too! So I found a couple of recipes and
decided to tweak my own. Thus the Chocolate Date Balls.. I mean Truffles were born
(truffles sounds a bit more classy, wouldn’t you say?!)
Chocolate Date Truffles
1 package of Dates (about 12 dates PITTED)
Blender OR Food Processor (I recommend a food processor but I used a blender and it worked just fine)
Desired Toppings: Crushed nuts, PB2 powder, cocoa powder, etc
1 scoop of [xyz-ihs snippet=”ChocolateMuscleMilk”]
1 CUP of all natural Peanut Butter
1/2 cup of rolled oats
1.Blend all ingredients (except for the toppings), in a blender/food processor.
2.Mixture should feel like a “dough”. Scoop out and roll into balls, pressing with palm of hand.
3.Roll each ball in desired topping. I separated each topping on an individual plate.
4.Store in refrigerator in a tupperware container.
Recipes makes about 30 truffles.
You can tweak the recipe by adding additional ingredients or toppings! Have fun!
