Three Ingredient "Chocolate" Truffles

Truffles.jpg

These Truffles…my goodness y’all! Not only are they rich and chocolaty…thanks to AIP friendly Carob Powder…but they’re only THREE ingredients! The base is the mighty Medjool Date, which has all sorts of healthy goodness wrapped in a sweet little package. They are fiber-rich, help with constipation (eh-hem, ladies 😉), and have been shown to positively impact cholesterol levels. ANDDDD they pack a one-two punch with both calcium and phosphorus, so your bones will love you back.

 •12 medjool dates
•1 tbsp finely shredded coconut
•1 tbsp carob 

  1. Boil dates in a shallow amount of water for 10 minutes. Remove from the water, gently mash with a fork and remove any pits.

  2. Combine all ingredients in a food processor.

  3. Process until a paste forms.

  4. Roll into balls, and roll in toppings of choice (pictured are carob powder, coconut and crushed almonds...AIP Reintro)

  5. Refrigerate for about an hour before serving; store in an airtight container, refrigerated.
