This clean eating, healthy carob truffles recipe is no different.This carobs truffle recipe has a lovely festive taste and is an indulgent snack, which also doubles up as a healthy dessert. 4 ingredients, a bit of rolling and a bit of chilling in the fridge, job done! Sofia can almost knock these up on her own, I only do the blending part and the eating part. If ground poppy seeds are hard to find, use black sesame seeds or chia seeds as they will give a similar appearance and texture. Between me and you, I am a bit bored with all the date, nuts and cacao energy balls, so this is a slightly different version.This carob truffles recipe is completely chocolate free, using the much underrated and underused carob. Of course, if you want you can use cacao, but carob has a slightly caramelly and sweet flavour, so I prefer it. I personally think carob and dried fruit make up an amazing truffle! Here is another carob recipe for you.
