Dark Chocolate Truffles

Try this healthy version of sweet fun food.


1/2 cup apricots (or prunes)
1/4 cup pitted dates
3 Tbsp. almond butter
1 Tbsp. maple syrup
3 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa
1/2 cup finely grated unsweetened coconut (don't like coconut? use some unsweetened cocoa powder)


In a food processor, drop the apricots and dates through the feed hole one by one.  Scrape the processor bowl and run until the apricots and dates are smooth.
Add remaining ingredients except for the coconut.  Run until smooth and scrape the processor bowl with a spatula as needed.
Roll the mixture into 12 one-inch balls and roll in coconut to coat.  Refrigerate for at least 1/2 hour.
