46 calories per truffle, 15-20 truffle balls per recipe…yes, please!  This is just what us sweet tooth lovers are looking for: Lemon Ginger Truffle Balls!  Granted, I usually enjoy chocolate or peanut butter to be a part of my sweet treat indulgence; I will say that these actually hit the spot regardless of those missing “yum factor” ingredients.  So here’s the skinny on the recipe:

  • 1/2 cup pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 1/2 cup dried apples
  • 1/4 rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons oat bran
  • 2 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

1.  In a food processor, add all the ingredients.  Mix/pulse for at least 1-2 minutes.  It will take a bit for the dough to mix.

2.  Once mixture is processed together and “dough like”, pour mixture in a bowl.  Form balls by packing the mixture together.

3.  Place lemon ginger truffle balls onto parchment/wax paper in a storage dish/pan.  

4.  Place in refrigerator to set for 5 minutes.

5.  Enjoy!
