Date palm trees were first cultivated in the Middle East about 8,000 years ago. They require 100 days in 100F heat and lots of water to produce the softest, sweetest dates. The rich fruit from the “Tree of Life” provide enough fiber and complex nutrients to energize you. These no-bake Date Truffles offer you the virtues of a gluten-free, sugar-free, vegan dessert. Rich and spicy with cocoa and cinnamon, they’re perfect after a holiday dinner. Use medjool dates for a sweeter truffle. Leave me your comments below.
I came across this recipe on Shayma Saadat’s luxurious website The Spice Spoon. Her guest, Kulsum of The Journey Kitchen (a site worth reading BTW) posted these Chocolate Cinnamon Truffles. I’ve adapted it slightly. Thank you Shayma and Kulsum.
