Guiltless


 I am actually pretty surprised at how easily I have transitioned back into healthy eating. I actually forgot how fun it is to try and find healthy swaps and eat delicious and naughty tasting food without the guilt! Enter the date truffle.... 


As I told you last week I have become obsessed with Instagraming for support and tips. It's also keeping me accountable because I try to post everything I eat like a food journal. Yesterday I found a user and blogger called lipstick and berries who has some gorgeous vegan and raw food photos and I was inspired to make some date truffles. 
I have made date fudge before and it is basically the same but you roll it in balls. 



I didn't measure out but you simply need dates, cocoa powder, coconut oil, and a food processor. 

Puree medjool dates and add in a small amount of coconut oil and as much cocoa powder as you want. I like mine really chocolaty! 

Refrigerate so the paste becomes sort of firm and then roll into balls.

I made three different varieties.

Rolled these in Qi'a cereal 

I rolled these in cocoa powder and topped with a goji berry 


And I rolled these in a blend of PB2 powder and flaxseed meal and topped with cacao nibs 



So good and good for you - as long as you don't eat the whole tray at once!
