We are always looking for small, sweet little snacks in our house that won't destroy our main purpose of eating healthy.  And when those little treats have NO added sugar & are Whole 30 compliant, well it makes all of us really happy.  

These Brownie Truffles are quick to make & even quicker to disappear!  Store them in the fridge for up to a week.


No Bake Brownie Truffles

ingredients

 10 large medjool dates, pitted

4 ounces, unsweetened baking chocolate bar

1-1/2 cups walnuts

2 tablespoons cashew butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon salt

 

directions

place walnuts in a food processor & grind until small pieces are formed {see pic above to get an idea}

scoop out 1/3 cup of the walnut pieces & place into a small bowl, set aside

add in all the remaining ingredients except the chocolate & process until mostly smooth

melt the chocolate, either in a double boiler or in the microwave on 30 second intervals

pour the melted chocolate evenly around in the bowl of the food processor & turn it back on for about 7-10 seconds until everything blends together.  you may have to scrape the sides a little & pulse again.

using a cookie scoop, scoop out mixture & roll into balls then roll around in the walnut pieces.

place the balls on a parchment lined cookie sheet in the freezer for 10 minutes.

if you want to enjoy them right away then leave them on the counter about 5 minutes or store in the fridge for later.
