Almonds are a healthful nut, and a super food. They are action packed with good fats, monounsaturated fats, the same kind you find in olive oil, and that help to reduce risk of heart disease, as well as lower cholesterol levels. Almonds are also loaded with vitamins and minerals such as biotin, vitamin E, manganese, phosphorous, magnesium and fiber. Dates contain no saturated fat or trans fat. They are also free of sodium and cholesterol. They are loaded with vitamin A, C, D, and B12. Pumpkin contains loads of fiber. Together these ingredients combine to make a rich and delicious truffle that also has plenty of great nutrition for you.
These truffles are easy to make, and not very expensive. You simply blend most of the ingredients, roll out the truffle shape, then chill and eat. You do not have to use vegan chocolate unless it is important to you, your family, or guests. Just be sure you use a good quality chocolate. Use the same approach with the coconut oil. The higher quality products really do taste better. Keep this recipe book marked for the holidays. The fresh taste of pumpkin will be appreciated by all your guests. Enjoy.
