What’s your last meal?
You know, the death bed meal, or the last thing you ever want to eat. Personally, mine is a nice warm loaf of french bread. Crispy, warm, crunchy, and perfect. Serve it with a nice garlic / oil dip and I’m good to go. You listening to that, heaven?
For many people (including my friends and family), there’s involves chocolate. My friend, Simmi, wants nothing more than a big chocolate bar. Remember that Spongebob character that says nothing but “CHOCOLATEEEE?” Yeah, that’s her. She sends me daily videos of chocolate porn via Instagram DM’s, with the tongue emoji and heart eyes attached. True friendship.
As you may or may not know, I’m not a huge chocolate person. I prefer vanilla bean or the fruity flavors. However, ever since I went to France, my tastebuds have changed, and I have grown to like it. My one condition? There must be other flavors involved. Whether it’s a nut, some fruit, or even a flavored extract, I want something to go with it. That’s why these truffles are so perfect- you have the pecan flavor, and the chocolate adds the perfect touch!
My mom has been requesting a truffle recipe for a while now, and after seeing all the dates I had in the fridge, I knew it was time. The base of these truffles is simple- dates and walnuts. Then, you roll them in a chocolate sauce and boom- easy, healthy-ish truffles! In fact, these would make for a great energy boosting snack as well 😉
These truffles are vegan, gluten free, no bake, refined sugar free, and absolutely delicious! My mom was blown away when I told her there wasn’t any sugar in them, and that’s saying something, because she has a gigantic sweet tooth and craves sugar daily. When you make these, don’t forget to send me a photo on Instagram @tennishealthfitness.
