Healthy Truffles

Rich, sweet, chocolate truffles that are also healthy do exist! And they require only a few simple ingredients and a small effort to make. They are the perfect any time treat.

Even though they are quite healthy I would still recommend enjoying them in moderation!

Healthy Truffles



1 cup natural almonds
1/2 cup prune or date puree (* I used Bonvit Prune Puree; $5.25 for a 375g jar from a health food shop.)
1 tblsp cocoa powder

To coat

flaked almonds

Preheat the oven to 180C. Place the almonds on an oven tray and roast for approximately 10 minutes. Allow to cool before grinding in a food processor.
