Healthy Chocolatey Truffles for Kids Lunchboxes

By Bronwyn Ward

This one is for Jane, and all the other mums fighting to get your kids to enjoy slightly healthier treats at lunchtime

Chocolatey Truffles

In a food processor I put:

1/2 cup mixed seeds

1/3 ground almonds

1 tsp cinnamon

2 tsp vanilla extract

2 Tbsp cocoa powder

BLITZZZZZ then add:

1 big handful of dates

1/4 cup tahini or nut butter

Blitz again add a little water until sticky dough.

Roll into balls with wet hands and dust with cocoa or 

coconut. Keep in the fridge up to 4 weeks (no chance they'll last that long though!!).

Nutritional Note: Nuts and seeds are excellent sources of protein and calcium, keeping small bellies fuller for longer. Cocoa has natural antioxidants and mood lifting properties for happy faces, enjoy :-)
