Valentine’s Day Healthy Truffles

Valentine’s Day can be sweet and without the big sugar crash with my Healthy Truffles recipe!

Hi guys!

I hope everyone had a great Super Bowl weekend!  I actually went over to a friend’s house this year, which was a lot of fun.  I made my Healthier Jalapeno Popper Dip and it was a hit. With Super Bowl over the countdown to Valentine’s Day is on.  I’ve talked about in the past how I usually don’t make a big deal about the holiday.  The Hubs and I like to make a fancy dinner at home the weekend before or after the holiday, whichever makes sense.  The older I get the more I really appreciate a Valentine’s Day at Home.

Even if we don’t blow up the holiday, it is fun to still have some festive healthier treats around the house and this Valentine’s Day Healthy Truffles recipe is downright perfect for the occasion.  They are so easy to make, taste incredible and really are good for you.  Plus they are only 4 ingredients making them a must try recipe.

These bites taste rich, decadent and chocolatey…  you’ll think they are pure chocolate…. but they are not!  You’d never guess they are made with four simple ingredients including a bunch of dates.

YES!  The base of these are kind of like an energy bite.  I softened and blended dates then added enough cocoa powder to make them taste dreamy.  I also added a touch of peanut butter and vanilla extract to round out the flavor.  If your peanut butter is on the oily side they should form bites easily, but if not you may need to add just a touch of melted coconut oil.

Through the magic of dates… the result is a rich, sweet, chocolate-ly truffle-y bite of goodness.

You can leave them plain, or dress up them up with sprinkles.

In my mind you should always go with the sprinkles. 🙂

Since this healthy truffle recipe is naturally sweetened with dates instead of sugar you get a sustained energy boost instead of a sugar crash… making this a bite you can feel good about eating.  They actually make you feel better instead of worse.

Make a batch now so you can feel the Valentine’s Day love without the guilt all week.  So even if you are like me and don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day you can still have a taste of something special.

These healthy truffles also  make a great edible gift for anyone you care about.  I’ve got a feeling they will love them too.

    Oh these are so cute! I love the heart-shaped sprinkles, they give a very nice aesthetic and festive touch.
    I feel like there was definitely a time when I really liked to go all out on Valentine’s Day… but now I do actually just enjoy a quiet evening home with some good food, especially a good dessert – I may just make these little guys =)

    You know, when I started reading this I thought it might be like something awful I saw on Pinterest awhile ago — chocolate covered BRUSSELS SPROUTS! Talk about ways to destroy your children’s trust forever and ENSURE they spend thousands of dollars in therapy complaining about you…!! But your truffles sound like they truly are a tasty treat. Dates and chocolate? I am so intrigued!! Thanks for sharing your recipe!
