SunButter Truffles

Share it Please
Little innocent truffles, soon to be devoured
Thank you, thank you, thank you Chocolate Covered Katie for giving me the basis of this recipe! I absolutely adore you and these awesome truffles!

Today I went to CCK's blog and found some 2-Ingredient truffles that I could eat! Ha ha! Success! Immediately, I ran to the food processor and grabbed the ingredients.

My finished product was............. well..........boring. I decided to spice things up a little and add a few ingredients. They turned out a lot more.... what's the word?......delectable or enticing. They are one of the most delicious raw (is sunflower seed butter raw?) desserts I've ever had. So delicious, I accidentally took a bite of the photo shoot. Oops.

Did I mention these are nut-free! They are! They're also free of gluten, soy, gums, dairy, and eggs.

So go ahead! Don't feel guilty about indulging in one, or two twenty of these babies!

2/3 c. dates, chopped and pitted
1 1/2 T. coconut butter
very scant 1/8 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 T. sunflower seed butter (or other nut or seed butter)
Optional: throw in some nuts or chocolate

1. Add the chopped dates to the food processor along with the coconut butter and salt.
2. Pulse until pebbly. Then add the vanilla and sunflower seed butter.
3. Pulse again until completely combined.
4. Form into balls or bars and freeze until hard. (I made about 9 balls)

Inquiry of the Day:

Do ever improvise if a recipe doesn't turn out the way you think it should?

One time, I tried to make fudge out of frozen tofu and sunflower seed butter. It didn't go so good. The fudge had a weird texture and taste. Wasn't fudge at all :(. Oh well, that just means there's room for improvement.

    1. Yes, it is part of the fun. I like to improvise too, much to my family's chagrin. Ah, well, they'll just have to get used to it. ;)

  2. I've got an avocado fudge recipe (look up Uncool Fudge) that might appeal to you! Avocados, cocoa powder, coconut oil, & sea salt

    Truffles look great!
