Melt in the mouth Sesame Chocolate Truffels

Sesame Chocolate Truffel

Sometimes it has to be chocolate. Usually I´m not such a big fan of sweets. Most of the time I would prefer savory treats, like a good piece of goat cheese, some spicy toasted nuts, a left over piece of pizza, … you get the idea. But once in a while I need chocolate to be happy. Even better, when it´s not only scrumptious but also healthy and loaded with proteins, omega-3 fatty acids, and dietary fibers. Like my super easy creamy bitter sweet sesame chocolate truffels.

I freeze the leftover truffles. When I get a chocolate craving, I pull one of these heavenly little balls out straight from the freezer and enjoy it cold.

Chocolate Sesame Truffels

Sesame Chocolate Truffels:
inspired by Dr. Ben Kings Almond Sesame Squares

1/2 cup sesame seed
1/2 cup sunflower seed
1/2 cup raw unsweetened cocoa powder
8 pitted dates
1/4 cup coconut butter (you can substitute the butter with good quality coconut oil)
1 TB agave syrup or maple syrup (you can take more if you like it sweeter)
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of sea salt
pinch of cardamom (optional)

for coating:
roasted sesame seeds, coconut flakes, cocoa powder

Soak the seeds for at least 2 hours or overnight.

Drain the seeds in a sieve.

Blend seeds, dates, cocoa powder, coconut butter, agave syrup, vanilla extract, salt and cardamom until creamy.

Roll into balls and cover with roasted sesame seeds, coconut flakes and cocoa powder.
