Ingredients

  • 1 cup dates
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder or cacao powder
  • 2 tablespoons hemp seeds
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter or nut butter of choice
  • 2 tablespoons almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips I use lily's or enjoy life
  • 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil

Instructions

  1. In a food processor, add the dates and blend until it forms a thick paste. Add in walnuts through vanilla and pulse until all the ingredients are well-combined and it forms a wet-crumbly mixture.
  2. Using a small cookie scoop or measuring spoon, scoop out about a tablespoon of the date mixture and form into balls. It should create around 12-15 balls. Set in freezer for 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, add the dark chocolate chips and coconut oil to a microwave safe bowl and microwave, on 50% power, in increments of 45 seconds, until fully melted and smooth.
  4. Dip each date ball into the melted chocolate until the whole ball is coated and set on parchment lined sheet tray. Put coated date balls into the freezer for 10-15 minutes to set up so the dark chocolate is hardened
  5. Extra Decorative Step. To make the superfood truffles even prettier, you can drizzle over any leftover melted dark chocolate over the truffle to create a cool design on each truffle. This is not a necessary step, purely aesthetic.
