Ok so the other day, I posted a yummy Cookie Dough Bar recipe that I happily devoured. Since I had some left over dates from making it and I didn’t feel like getting anything on my “to-do list” done, I decided to get creative with them. This recipe came from sheer boredom… thankfully they ended up being DELICIOUS! (Maybe now I can convince my Mom procrastination is a good thing? Or maybe not…) =P
Keep in mind that while dates are all-natural, they are still high in sugar. I would personally consider these more of an occasional healthy treat than an everyday indulgence. Because trust me… these could EASILY become an all-the-time-indulgence.. they are THAT good! They are clean despite the high natural sugar though so the “guilt” level is low You won’t regret subbing these clean eating treats for the usual chemical-infused and highly-processed candy that many people treat themselves too!
Sweet & Creamy Date Truffles
- Organic Dates (Depends on how many servings you want, each date is 1 serving)
- Natural Nut Butter of choice (I used Almond & Peanut for the ones pictured below)
- Vanilla Whey Protein Powder
- Baking Cocoa (optional)
For each date, mix 1tsp nut butter + 1 tsp protein powder + 1/2 tsp baking cocoa + 1 tsp water in a separate bowl. Slice dates in half and discard date pit in trash can. Add a dollop of nut butter filling into each half of date. Set on a plate and freeze for at least an hour. Serve cold. ENJOY!
