So, yes Christmas is over, but this amazing dessert eCookbook will be your go to guide for making healthy and tasty desserts all year long (alongside BecomingSweet of course :)).
‘A Healthy Christmas’ is packed with over 50 amazing desserts and today I am featuring the Chocolate Orange Truffles.
These were so easy to prepare and taste absolutely amazing. They are also gluten and dairy free, as well as being vegan and paleo friendly. These truffles are perfect if you are short on time and they are also great to give as a gift.
I am looking to making these again when I next have visitors over.
- 1 1/2 Cups Dates (only soften the dates if your blender is not strong enough)
- 1 1/2 teaspoons Orange Rind
- 1/3 Cup blanched Almonds (or another nut)
- 1 1/2 Tablespoons Maple Syrup or Honey
- 1/4 teaspoon Cardamom
- 1 1/2 Tablespoons Cocoa
- 1/4 Cup Desiccated coconut
- Place all the ingredients, except the coconut, in a blender and process until well combined.
- Divide the mixture into even portions and roll into balls.
- Roll the balls in the coconut and refrigerate.
