Chocolate Orange Truffles

Who doesn’t love a chocolate orange combo?!

These truffles are healthy, full of nutrition and oh so good!

If you’re facing a slump in your day, the citrusy orange provides a nice little zesty, zingy uplift to carry you through.

These truffles have been so handy to just grab out of the freezer when we need a little pick me up, and my son has loved having them in his school lunch box too and they make a great nutrient-dense, filling healthy snack for kids.

Enjoy this Vitamin C-packed party in a bliss ball! We’ve always got a batch of bliss balls stashed away in the fridge or freezer like these nut and date-free Raw Cacao Balls,  the Apricot, Orange, and Coconut Bliss balls from my Easy Wholefood Lunchboxes ebook, and these Chocolate Peanut Butter Bliss Balls.

Many of the ingredients in this recipe can be sourced from my one-stop-favourite, organic wholefoods online store, The Wholefood Collective. They go to great lengths to ensure everything they source is amazing quality, they stock all my favorite products and I don’t even have to leave the house! Oh, and the cherry on the cake is they donate profits to improve food security for vulnerable Aussies.

Here are some of the ingredients you’ll need:

Cacao Powder
Chia Seeds
Medjool Dates
Desiccated Coconut
Cinnamon Powder
Maple Syrup
