Merry Christmas Health Truffles

Written by Bridget on . Posted in Ravishing Recipes


No, I am NOT pulling your leg! This is NOT a click-bait post ! 🙂

These REALLY are HEALTH truffles and WILL infuse your cells with mineral and vitamin rich GOODNESS 🙂

Made on ALL natural ingredients with NO preservatives, additives, nasties or fillers! Just 100% wholesome goodness 🙂

Dates are full of fibre, which make them EXCELLENT for your bowels and your heart! 🙂 They are also high in magnesium and Vitamin B6, so they are especially wonderful if you are an active adventurer!

Walnuts and cashews are awesome sources of protein, essential fats, yet more fibre and heart-friendly compounds.

Finally cranberries are not only FESTIVE, they are also high in Vitamin C, other anti-oxidants, fibre and anti-inflammatory agents 🙂

So as you can see, these brownie-cranberry balls of bliss really ARE good for you 🙂

Special thanks to my wonderful friend Marion for this recipe, and I hope to sometime soon share her more with you 🙂 Watch this space!

Enjoy and be sure to send piccies, feedback, questions or your own ideas and recipes!
