  • Chop the dates finely in a food processor. 
  • Then mix the dates with the rest of the ingredients and roll into small balls.
  • If you like coconut, you can roll the truffles through desiccated coconut. 
  • Store the truffles in a sealed container in the fridge until ready to eat (they stay fresh for about 3-4 days).
  • Can't find puffed quinoa? Substitute with 3 tablespoons of crushed walnuts. Just grind them first in a blender or use a pestle and mortar.
