Chocolate Almond Truffles

April 12th, 2018 | no comments

This recipe is courtesy of Carla IaFelice, a Wellness Consultant for Heinen’s Grocery Store. It’s no-bake, uses only six simple ingredients, and takes less than 10 minutes to prepare.

The raw cacao powder-almond butter-sea salt combo means these truffles are a decadent blend of salty, sweet, and creamy. Whip up a quick batch and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week or freezer for up to a month.

Oh, and by the way…each truffle contains 4 grams of fiber and only 5 grams of sugar!
