Assorted Chocolate Truffles

These are little beauties, delicious chocolaty truffles, full of great ingredients and a perfect after dinner bite, especially good with an espresso. (Also good after workouts, according to my other half).

I’m always on the search for recipes I can make healthier without compromising on taste and I think these are a perfect example.

Date and Chocolate Truffles

350gr oats – blend to a finer consistency if very big oat flakes
7ox seeded dates chopped
10fl oz water
4oz good quality chocolate
2oz mixed seeds

Put dates into a pot with 10fl oz water
Bring to the boil and turn down to a simmer under soft and fudgy
Meanwhile melt 100gr good quality chocolate (I use the date pot to place the chocolate bowl over!)
Stir the dates and water until they are well combined and add the melted chocolate
Stir in the oats
Add 2oz mixed seeds of choice.
Stir well to combine everything.
If it is a bit wet, add a handful more oats.
Form into small balls and roll in your toppings of choice.
I used cocoa, coconut and blended cashew nuts,

Delicious and full of really good ingredients!
Keep them in the fridge but take out for about 30 minutes to soften and release their flavours before eating.
