Energy Balancing Truffles
Nothing says comfort food like a sweet dessert. After you push your dinner plate to the side, you can pull out these truffles made with ashwagandha and ojas-building dates. They’re sure to make you and your adrenals smile.
10 dates, dried and pitted
2 teaspoons ashwagandha powder
½ cup dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon coconut oil, refined
Sea salt and sesame seeds for topping
Using a blender or food processor, blend the dates and ashwagandha into a paste. Roll into small balls.
If too sticky to shape, and refrigerate for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, heat chocolate chips and coconut oil in a small pan over medium heat. Stir frequently. Dunk the date balls into the chocolate to coat, and rescue with a spoon.
Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and sprinkle with sea salt and sesame seeds. Refrigerate or freeze to set chocolate.
Eat while slightly chilled to avoid melting.
