This is a really really fun recipe to round the whole family for and make together over the festive period. It’s a wonderful way to get everyone involved in Christmas snack-making!
The truffles themselves are dairy-free, gluten-free, and feature absolutely no artificial sweeteners or random ingredients.
4 tbsp chopped dates (41g)
1/4 cup (27g) pea protein powder
3 tbsp pumpkin seeds (31.5g)
3 tbsp hulled hemp seeds (30g)
4 tbsp ‘Christmas Fruit’ (i.e. a combo of dried apricots, raisins, and sultanas)
3 tbsp dried cranberries (27g)
1 tbsp (21g) honey
1 tbsp (16ml) almond milk
1 tbsp (16g) walnuts
Cinnamon to taste
Mixed spice to taste
Grated orange peel (I just grated 1/2 of an orange into the mix – this is optional but delicious!)
1. Throw everything in a small food processor until you get a well-combined and delicious dough!
2. Divide this dough into 16 little truffles
6g carbs (out of which 1g is fibre)
Note: If you don’t care about making your truffles vegan, you *could* use an unflavoured whey protein. However, we suggest you add some ground almonds to your dough if you do that to ensure it ends up with the right consistency.
