Coconut-Cranberry Energy Truffles | Blogmas Day 11 | 2016

Good Food = Good Mood

Hello, Everyone!

Today I am going to share one of my all-time favorite recipes. I call them Coconut-Cranberry Energy Truffles; they are basically a ball of nutritious ingredients, great for on-the-go snacking. Let’s get into this recipe!

Here is what you will need:

  • food processor or blender
  • spatula 
  • a large plate that can be put in the refrigerator
  • wax paper
  • a tablespoon

Ingredients:

15-17 pitted dates

1 cup of almonds or cashews

3-5 tablespoons of cranberry concentrate

3 tablespoons of shredded coconut

2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder

**extra shredded coconut or cocoa powder or powdered sugar for step 4

Directions:

  1. Prepare the plate with a piece of wax paper on top, and set aside.
  2. In a food processor or blender add all the ingredients (excpet the **extra) until it forms a giant ball of “dough”. You may have to blend in intervals, and scrape the sides of the blender or processor as you go.
  3. Next, take a table spoon and scoop out a golf ball sized amount of dough and roll it into a ball, then place it on the wax paper.
  4. **Once all the dough is gone, take each ball and roll it in the extra shredded coconut. (You can also use powdered sugar or cocoa powder).
  5. Once you are satisfied will the truffles, put them in the fridge to cool for at least 2 hours. I find that letting them chill over night is best.
  6. Store in the fridge for about 2 weeks. Enjoy!
