A delicious combination of chia, cranberries, walnuts and dates, these coconut-cranberry chocolate truffles are nutritious and guilt-free.raw-coconut-cranberry-chocolate-truffles-recipe

Happy Black Friday guys! How was your Thanksgiving? Mine was awesome!

I finally roasted my first turkey and it turned out delicious!

Today I have a very easy and healthy snack for you.

Energy balls, bites or raw healthy truffles – call them the way you’d like. These cute little balls are one of my favorite post-workout snacks. You can experiment with different ratios of nuts, using different dried fruits instead of cranberries and roll the truffles in cocoa powder, chia seeds or even sprinkles.


I’ve shared other truffle recipes with you before and they are all very easy to make and loaded with flavor. I like to keep them chilled and every time I bite into them they taste almost as chocolate. I said almost!


I love the use of cacao nibs in the recipe, which adds a little crunch and lots of flavor.


These coconut-cranberry chocolate truffles are loaded with protein, fiber and are naturally sweetened.

You can wrap these truffles nicely and give them away for the holidays or even serve them at a party.

The recipe I’m sharing with you today is slightly adapted from the book :”The Chia Cookbook” by Janie Hoffman. If you’d like to learn more about this trendy super food and also try some recipes, I would recommend this book.

I’ve tried most of the recipes from the book and I’m glad I was able to incorporate chia seeds into my diet.
