As promised yesterday, here is an Earth Day-inspired recipe that is simple to make and a way to satisfy the sweet tooth without any added sugar (unless you want to add a little).
I came across this recipe at the Whole Foods Market recipe site, but made it over so that it didn’t contain sugar. I always love when I find recipes that are easily sweetened by fruit…recipes that leave you feeling good about what you ate instead of weighed down and sluggish.
You might want to double this recipe if you have children or are bringing this to share because they don’t stay on the plate for very long.
If you’re curious why I recommend buying fair-trade cocoa powder, read this post.
6-ingredient chocolate earth truffles
Prep Time: 10-15 minutes
Chill Time: 1 hour
- 1 cup peanut butter
- ½ cup date paste
- 2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder, preferably fair trade
- ½ cup raisins
- ½ cup cacao nibs (or dairy free chocolate chips)
- 1/3-1/2 cups unsweetened shredded or flaked coconut
In a food processor, add peanut butter, date paste and cocoa powder and blend until all the ingredients are well combined.
Spoon mixture into a large bowl and add raisins and cacao nibs or chocolate chips. Stir until thoroughly combined.
Place mix in the fridge for about one hour to firm up.
Scoop out spoonfuls of truffle mix and form 1” balls.
Roll balls in shredded/flaked coconut.
Store in an air tight container in the fridge. Will keep for about 2-3 days if properly stored.
You also could roll the truffles in finely ground walnuts, pecans or almonds.
To make these raw, use raw peanut butter
