Truffles are a year-round treat in the McJordan home. Don’t wait for the holidays in December or a special occasion to make these because you can enjoy them any time of year. They are perfect right out of the freezer making them ideal for a warm summer day!
These truffles are packed with fibre from the oats and dates as well as healthy fats from the almond butter and coconut oil.
When I first tried them they reminded me of fat bombs but if you’ve never heard of a “fat bomb” and this doesn’t sound enticing to you make no mistake, these are AMAZING.
I actually made them while I was at the office one afternoon so I left them there in the freezer. This was a smart move. I think they would have been gobbled up too quickly if we all had 24 hr access to them.
This recipe is from the Two Spoons cookbook by Hannah Sundarani, the talent behind the popular instagram and food blog Two Spoons. In fact, long before her book came out I interviewed her for the Joyous Health Podcast and she shared her experience living in Paris which her book is definitely inspired by as you can tell from the yummy recipes.
She is so talented. Not only did she create more than 100 French-inspired vegan recipes, but she did all the food photography too. That is a major accomplishment!!
I only made two small changes to her original recipe. The first one was to switch from PB to AB (almond butter). Side note: I try to limit my intake of PB because it can trigger eczema on my hands but I do have it every once in a while as a treat. However, whether you make these truffles with PB or AB you will not be disappointed! And I didn’t have cake sprinkles so I used bee pollen instead which is not only a gorgeous colour, but it’s an excellent source of B vitamins, amino acids and immune-supportive phytonutrients.

These are best enjoyed right out of the fridge or freezer because the chocolate will melt on the outside rather quickly. If you make them for your next BBQ or when entertaining, just take them out 5 minutes before serving. Even if they do start to melt, no one will mind because they will be licking the chocolate off their fingers!
Here’s what I would serve as the main event to go with these truffles:
