Date and nut truffles recipe

If you have a sweet tooth like me, you know what its like to have  ‘all things sweet’ binges. Now I try to binge on the ‘healthy’ sweet options. I came across this date and nut truffles recipe from Dania Tripani’s blog but made a few nibbly changes. For all you sweet toothers out there, here is a little sweet recipe that is sure to satisfy those naughty cravings. It is full of nuts and seeds giving us a rich source of omega-3s and minerals  and raw cacao for that added antioxidant boost. Plus it contains no refined sugar:)

Fact: Did you know that eating pumpkin seeds a few hours before you sleep, coupled with a small piece of fruit maybe especially beneficial in promoting melatonin and serotonin production, helping to promote a restful night sleep.
