Chocolate Pecan Truffles from Recipe RenovatorHi. I am a recovering candy bar addict. I admit it. In the past I have been powerless over my desire for candy bars. So, given that I feel really terrible if I eat candy bars, what’s a girl to do? Have these in the fridge at all times.

These luscious little morsels taste enough like Snickers bars to satisfy me… the dates have a caramel flavor, and the nuts, chocolate, and salt combine for an incredibly satisfying little snack. I allow myself two per day, mid-afternoon, and I can generally stay on my wellness plan.

This version of a truffle is incredibly healthy… natural dates are super-sweet but rich in iron and fiber. Cacao nibs give you all the benefits of chocolate without added sugar, and the pecans add additional heart-healthy fats and fiber. Enjoy!

Suitable for:

vegan, gluten-free, low-sodium, reduced-sugar diets

Not for:

migraine diets

All of our recipes are gluten-free, sugar-free, and made with plant-based ingredients to help you build a healthy life. We support Meatless Monday. Look for midweek essays and Friday giveaways (when available).

Instructions
  1. Remove the pits from the dates.
  2. Put the dates in your food processor with the rest of the ingredients. Process until the mixture is finely ground and holds together when pressed. If the dates are a little dry, you may need to add a small amount of nut milk.

    This is just brilliant!! I’m a snickers girl myself and theres hardly a opportunity at the checkout lane that passes me by from grabbing a big fat snickers bar. This sounds like a excellent substitute!!
