Raw treats are some of my favorite desserts to eat.
Unfortunately, most recipes require copious amounts of nuts, which I don't tolerate well in large amounts, and since my oldest daughter can't have them at all, I wanted to create a delicious, chocolat-y treat for us to both enjoy!
These easy, decadent truffles are made up of just four ingredients, and they are fancy enough to serve to guests!
Please enjoy the following video for these delights.

I love making little sweet chocolate snacks to munch on when my afternoon sugar cravings hit. The best thing about these has to be how healthy they are - so you definitely can consider I will be recreating the recipe Lauren!
Thanks so much Thalia, you always leave the nicest comments! 🙂

You're too cute Lauren! Love these truffles and how easy you made these. Annd I pretty sure you could be hoisting you very own TV show soon! 😀
Lol, I don't know about that, but thanks Laura! 🙂
Thank you Lauren. these days I am not sure what I am tolerating. sometimes nuts and sometimes not. I really don't do well with coconut flour either. was trying to think of another type of whole grain 'flour' or the like that is not flour. maybe 'buckwheat'? not sure if that would be any better tolerated in the flour state.
I actually just lightly toasted up some whole rolled oats. I will grind them down to a flour and see how we do over here. 🙂 thanks Lauren and honestly amen to you for 'speaking' your truth to those who love to just delve in without thinking..... funny people.
another alternative for Oat flour?
You could try 1/4 cup or nuts or seeds, if you tolerate them. 🙂
Big fan of your videos (as always) and those truffles look amazing!

I love that these are lighter than most truffles! I bet they're super fudgey with all the dates too 🙂
