It’s always nice to make something extra for the weekend, I like to think I am filling my cabinets with healthy goodies, so that the temptation isn’t too big and you go to the nearest store and buy a bunch of candy! So today I made these wonderful chocolate (carob) truffles that are both healthy and will still your sweet tooth. Try them with different seeds and find your favorite. If you’re allergic to nuts you can replace the peanut butter with almond butter if that is better for you.
Healthy peanut and coconut truffles
This makes about 20 pieces
1 cup creamy coconut milk (if you can’t find the creamy version, use the thick part of the regular one)
12 medjool dates, pitted
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup carob (you can use unsweetened cocoa powder if you do not have carob at home)
4 tablespoons chia seeds
1 pinch of vanilla (this is about 1/2 of the seeds from a vanilla bean)
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup coconut flour
Extra coconut flour and carob/cocoa powder to roll them in.
In a food processor bled coconut milk, the dates, peanut butter, carob and chia seeds into a creamy mixture. Don’t start munching you mix right now even if it looks and tastes really good! :) Scrape the mixture into a large bowl and add vanilla, all seeds and coconut flour and stir around. Make the truffles by rolling them with your hands. It the mixture seems too sticky, add a little extra coconut flour. Then roll them in some coconut flour or carob to get a nice finish! Keep them in the fridge until serving.
