Healthy Pure Chocolate Truffle Snacks
Prep time
Total time
For slightly sweeter snack balls that still have ample cacao benefits, you can substitute dark chocolate chips. Note that the prep time does not include chilling time in the refrigerator.
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: about 9 truffle bites
  1. Soak the dates in hot water for 10 minutes. Drain.
  2. In a medium bowl, mash (I use a fork) the soaked dates with the melted chocolate chips and almond butter, until relatively smooth and well-distributed. Add in sweetener, to taste, if desired.
  3. Scoop the mixture by the generous ½ tablespoon and roll into balls.
  4. Place some almond flour or almond meal (about 2 tablespoons, or more as needed) on a plate, and roll the balls in it to coat.
  5. Refrigerate the truffles for 30 minutes to set-up. They can be stored in the refrigerator or freezer* until snack time!
*These healthy bites actually stay tender when frozen, so they can be eaten straight from the freezer and will keep there for a few months in an airtight plastic bag.
