A bit like truffles, but not a bad ingredient in the bunch. Those are the types sweet treats that make me really happy & my sweet tooth satisfied. Take these on a picnic, to the beach, on a car ride, post-workout, or just eat them for an afternoon pick-me-up. These are super quick to make, & store wonderfully in the refrigerator. If you like these and are looking for similar ideas, check out my chocolate coconut bites, carrot cake bites, or peanut butter bites. I guess I just like bites of things!
makes approximately 15 small truffles.
Adapted from Apartment 34
1 cup of raw almonds
1 very ripe banana
1 date or 2 dried apricots
1 tablespoon of cacoa powder
1/2 cup almond butter
a pinch of sea salt
1 TBL maple syrup or raw honey
2 tablespoons cacao powder for coating outside
- Place ingredients into the food processor (blender works!) and pulse until the ingredients are thoroughly combined. This will be a sticky process--but worth it!
- Take a TBL of the mixture and form bite sized balls by rolling in between the palms of your hands. Roll into cocoa powder. Set aside on plate or baking sheet and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Store in an air tight container in the refrigerator.
happy eatings & cheers!
