Cherry Almond Truffle four on plate

If you want to have a sweet chocolaty treat without the guilt, try these healthy chocolate truffles. Not only are they gluten- and dairy-free, they are packed with nutrient-rich superfoods.

By using Medjool dates, I’ve cut the amount of chocolate in half but kept all the flavor. In fact the moisture from the dates makes the truffles rich and gooey. And the addition of other superfoods like coconut, dried cherries, almonds, walnuts and pecans gives you reason to feel good about this special treat.

Food Processor

Although there is an endless combination of super foods you can use, my favorite recipe is for my dark chocolate cherry almond truffles. A close second are my dark chocolate coconut truffles.

I love chocolate but I often feel guilty when I allow myself to indulge. The ingredient in these decadent truffles are good for you and make me feel good about a little indulgence!
