Make Your Own Healthy Cherry Pie Truffles

Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups of Pecans
  • 1 Cup of Pitted Dates
  • 1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
  • ¼ Cup Ground Flax
  • Juice of 1/2 Lemon
  • Zest of 1/2 Lemon
  • ¼ Cup Water
  • 1/3 Cup Dried Natural Cherries
  • 1/4 Cup Toasted Coconut (for rolling)

Directions:

  1. Add your two cups of pecans to your food processor and blend until it is in small pieces.
  2. Add your ground flax and pulse until blended.
  3. Add the vanilla extract, lemon juice, lemon zest, dates, and water. Blend until dough texture.
  4. Remove the dough from the food processor and place in a bowl.
  5. Hand mix cherries into mixture.
  6. Begin rolling protein balls into 1 inch balls.
  7. Roll protein balls in toasted coconut until completely covered.
  8. Place balls on a plate or in a container, cover and place in the fridge.

*Special Note – These tend to be quite sticky. Placing these in the fridge for 10-15 minutes before rolling will help. I like to use two metal spoons to do my rolling.

Tip – For a special treat these are delicious dipped or drizzled with chocolate.
