    Chocolate orange and date truffle

    Orange and Date Chocolate Truffles: Gluten Free, High Protein, No added Sugar

    I’d recommend making two batches of these as they won’t last long regardless of how many people in your house are going to eat them. These truffles are high in protein, are naturally sweetened from dates and contain no gluten.

    INGREDIENTS

    • 1 egg whisked
    • 2 tbs of flaxseed meal
    • 90 grams of chocolate whey protein isolate
    • 1 handful of dates
    • 1/2 cups to 1 cup of desiccated coconut (depending on texture)
    • 1 orange rind
    • Juice of half an orange
    • 1/2 cup of hot water
    • 1 tsp of raw cocoa powder
    • 6-8 squares of dark chocolate 70% or better
    • 1 tbs of coconut oil
    • 1 stevia tab

    METHOD

    • Crack one egg in a bowl and whisk
    • Add flaxseed meal, 1/2 cup of coconut and cocoa powder to bowl
    • Using a fine grater or zester, grate a whole orange rind into bowl
    • Take dates and place in food processor with 1/2 cup of hot water
    • Blend until dates are a paste like consistency
    • Add date paste to bowl and stir well
    • If mixture is too dry, add another egg
    • If mixture is too wet, add more desiccated coconut
    • The consistency should be sticky and gluggy but not dry or wet
    • Place in freezer for around 15-20 minutes
    • After approximately 15 minutes, take dark chocolate squares and coconut oil and place in a bowl then heat in icrowave for approximately 1 minute or until melted
    • Add 1 stevia tab to chocolate mixture and stir then pour melted chocolate onto baking paper
    • Remove truffle mixture from freezer
    • Grab another plate and cover with baking paper
    • Using a tablespoon, portion out mixture and roll into balls with your hands
    • Once you have made a ball, drop it in the melted dark chocolate roll it around until it’s covered
    • Place each ball into the new plate with clean baking paper
    • Place back in the freezer for another 30 minutes or until ready to serve
    • I have found that these truffles can be kept in the freezer and won’t freeze solid
