Happy Valentines Day!   I hope you all have a very special day with your loved ones!!
Gluten Free & Sugar Free Chocolate Truffles

Ingredients:
1 cup of walnuts
1 cup of almonds or hazelnuts
4 tablespoons of gluten free unsweetened cacao/cocoa- see note below
2 tablespoons of coconut oil
1 1/2 cups of dates, figs, prunes or any unsweetened dried fruit
2 teaspoons of gluten free pure cinnamon
1/4 cup of Truvia stevia, to taste
1 tablespoon of flax meal or chia seeds
1 tablespoon psyllium husks-opt

Instructions:
  1. Place the ingredients into a food processor and blend for about 5 minutes until a gooey, sticky mixture forms.
  2. Don’t allow the walnuts and hazelnuts to become totally smooth as their little crunchy pieces really add to the texture.
  3. Roll the dough into little balls using your oiled hands and then shake in a large baggie with additional cocoa. 
  4. Or for easy protein bars- press into a large greased baking dish and cut into bars
  5. Refrigerate over night
Makes 25 truffles
