Chocolate, date and nut truffles

These are absolutely amazing - the kids loved them AND thought they were being allowed a treat - when in reality they are packed full of goodness. I just wish I'd come up with the recipe myself - this is slightly adapted from the recipe for chocolate snowballs over on the wonderful Shivaay Delights blog.

Ingredients (makes 8)
100g chopped dates
40g walnuts
50g raisins
1/2 tbsp almond butter
1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 tbsp sunflower oil
1/2 tbsp maple syrup
35g desiccated coconut

Put all the ingredients apart from the coconut into a food processor and whizz up into a thick paste.

Using a little oil roll out little balls of the mixture with your hands into truffle size. Dip into the coconut and roll around until completely covered.

Chill in the fridge for at least an hour.
