Treat yourself or your friends and family right with these extra dark and dreamy, healthy and fuss free Vegan Mocha Chia Seeds and Mixed Nuts truffles on any occasion or just grab one and pop in your mouth whenever you are low on energy. They are easy to whip up, a batch of these can be made within 5 minutes just with some good-for-you ingredients. All you need is a food processor to blend everything together.
From time to time I whip up healthy and fuss free treats like No bake buckwheat and cacao bars, , No bake coconut and fox nut bars, No Bake protein packed Bites , definitely I would bake these comforting Masala Chai Tea Granola Bars. when I have lots of time on my hands.
These truffles are sweetened with soft and juicy Medjool dates, and healthy fats derives from raw nuts rather than cream or butter, and obviously these little tiny but mighty chia seeds are here to perform their magic. That means each of these little delicious truffle has healthy protein and fibre along with chocolate and coffee deliciousness!
According to health experts Medjool dates are the healthiest natural sweetener with bucket full of good benefits.
The base of this recipe is dried fruit, but they don’t contain any refined sugar, the dates in these truffles makes them sweet, but they won’t send you in sugar coma as nuts and chia seeds will balance it out as they are full of protein. Chia seeds are my favourite go-to add in for so many things.
These filling and portable truffles are addictive, but if you are trying to keep things on a healthy side you don’t want to devour the whole batch in one go. Have just one or two as treat!
These truffles make a perfect edible gift for those who appreciate homemade and healthy stuff.
Are you thinking what I am thinking?, these truffles are the perfect solution, why don’t you prepare these truffles and give it to your mum as a Mother’s Day gift, because mums love edible gift because they are delicious and come straight from the heart.
Instead of mixed nuts, you can prepare these truffles only with one kind of nuts.
Omit coffee powder to make this completely raw.
Unsweetened Cocoa powder can be used if you can’t get hold of raw cacao powder.
If you are not using high quality soft dates, soak them in a warm water for half an hour, then discard the water and dry off dates very well.
Although these truffles are made with good-for-you ingredients and 100% natural be sure not to binge on these, especially if you are suffering with high sugar levels as they contain a lots of sugar from dates.
