Dessert is not a bad word when it is Dark Chocolate Turmeric Truffles. These savory and delicious bites are nutrient-dense Paleo, vegan, and allergy free.
100 g pitted Medjool dates (about 8 dates)
½ cup raw sunflower seeds
1 tsp turmeric root powder
⅛ tsp salt
⅛ tsp ground ginger
½ tsp vanilla extract
3 oz 80-90% dark chocolate
Add all filling ingredients to a food processor. Blend until the mixture becomes sticky and can be formed into balls.
Scoop out 1 heaping teaspoon of dough and roll it into a ball.
Place the balls on a small pan or plate and stick them in the freezer for at least an hour.
Next, melt the dark chocolate. Place chocolate in a small saucepan and melt on low heat, stirring frequently.
Once melted, dip the balls into the dark chocolate, coating completely.
Set truffles on a flat surface and place in fridge or freezer to set.
