Quick & Healthy Recipe: No-Bake Brownie Truffle Bites

Posted Feb 10 2009 10:07am
I can't think of an easier, quicker recipe.

My favorite part of serving these is telling people the rich dessert they are enjoying takes no more than five minutes to prepare!

Added bonus: each bite is a good source of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients!

YIELDS: 12 bites/balls

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup raisins
5 tablespoons cacao powder or unsweetened cocoa powder (pictured at left)
2 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt

OPTIONAL ADD-ONS:

1 1/2 tablespoons ground flaxseed/oat bran/wheat germ
1 1/2 teaspoons coconut extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon

INSTRUCTIONS:

Grind walnuts in food processor.

Add raisins and blend.

Add remaining ingredients and process again.

Scoop out mixture, in the shape of small truffle-like balls, onto baking sheet.

Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Enjoy!
