Real Food Truffles

how to make healthy truffles

Forget packaged ‘health food’ bars. One of these tasty truffles will power your entire afternoon.

I’m on day 17 of my ONLY REAL FOOD diet.

So far I’ve lost 9 pounds and feel amazing.

The only thing is…I’ve missed getting my chocolate fix. Dark chocolate with 73% cocoa still has some sugar in it, so it’s off-limits.

So I threw a bunch of yummy stuff into the food processor, along with some unsweetened cocoa, and ended up with Real Food Truffles 🙂

These are not overly sweet and are high in fat, so one little truffle will give you energy for an entire afternoon without spiking your blood sugar.

    Hi Diana: Just want to be sure I am reading the nutritional information in your recipes correctly, as they are phrased differently than typical recipes. For instance, in this truffle recipe, it says “serves 50”, rather than “makes 50 pieces”. I assume that means the recipe makes 50 pieces and 1 piece is considered the serving size? And therefore the nutritional content at the bottom of the recipe is for only 1 truffle? Thank you for clarifying, I’ve had the same question on a couple other recipes you’ve provided.

      Hello Carole,

      I apologize for any confusion. Yes this recipe makes 50 pieces, so the nutritional content is for each piece.

      Happy cooking! 🙂
