"Chocolate" Orange Truffles (Paleo, AIP)
Servings: 8 truffles
Bite-sized, REALLY quick and easy to make, freezer-friendly, and super tasty with flavors of carob and orange, this easy AIP dessert is a delicious way to satisfy that sweet tooth! (Also compliant for Paleo as well)
- 10 pitted soft Dates
- 1 Orange (zest of the whole orange and 2 tbsp of the Orange Juice)
- 1 tbsp Avocado Oil or Coconut Oil (melted) (or an oil/fat you tolerate)
- 3 tbsp Carob Powder + 2 tbsp for dusting (you can use Cocoa powder if you're not on the AIP Diet)
Place all of the ingredients into a food processor or blender and blend until it becomes a smooth paste. You may have to scrape down the sides a few times.
Place 2 tbsp of carob powder in a bowl or plate and then scoop out a small amount of the date mixture and roll it into a ball with your hands. Then roll in the carob powder, shaking off any excess.
Store in the fridge for up to a week or in the freezer for longer (simply thaw on the counter for a few minutes before eating).
Freezing Instructions: For longer storage, freeze up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator or on the counter before enjoying.
