Almond Butter Truffles


These truffles are like little bombs of deliciousness. They're super quick, ridiculously easy and perfect for dessert or a snack. Plus, they are sweetened entirely with dates which make them (somewhat) less sinful than your average truffles. Don't be afraid to be heavy-handed with the salt: the combination of salty and sweet is what makes these so addictive! 

Rusted Root- Send Me On My Way


10 large pitted medjool dates
2 tbsp almond butter
pinch of sea salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1 tsp coconut oil
optional: chia seeds or large flake salt for topping


Add dates, almond butter, sea salt and vanilla to a food processor. Pulse until the mixture is smooth. With wet hands, roll into balls (about a teaspoon each), and place on parchment paper covered tray. Freeze the balls for about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, melt dark chocolate with coconut oil, stirring often over low heat. After 15 minutes, dip balls into the dark chocolate, place back on the tray. If choosing to, sprinkle  with kosher salt or chia seeds. Place back into freezer. Serve straight from the freezer (they taste best when chilled!)
