Chocolate truffles brownie bites that are healthy?!?  Yes, they are a real thing but I need you to trust me.  These healthy chocolate truffles actually have very little chocolate in them, yet they are decadent and delicious.  They are made with whole food ingredients, are gluten free, and when you toss couple of them in your mouth, they fulfill that sweet tooth craving without being indulgent.

For my regular readers, you may recognize the base of these healthy chocolate truffle brownie bites as being very similar to my recipe for Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Larabars.  Ever since I discovered the use of dates and nuts as the base for all kinds of sweet, yet healthy treats, my life has become so much happier!

I know many of you will automatically dismiss this recipe because I used of dates.  If that is you, I beg of you, just give it a try!  Even my kiddos love these little bites of heaven and have no idea how good for them they are.

These healthy chocolate truffle brownie bites are easy to roll out when you use a small cookie scoop.  It perfectly portions these into 1 tablespoon bites.  I use my small cookie scoop for so many different applications like making melon balls, portioning mini muffins and of course, making cookies!

Hi there dearie CAROLE. I have been at PInterest for a while and been collecting recipes for almost two months and been buying recipe books and books on the science and techniques of cooking and buying left and right. And am i so glad, you concocted these yummy truffles that are healthy at the same time. My boyfriend is a sweet tooth but he has yet to learn to acquire the taste for dark chocolates. I am not a sweet tooth, but once I start eating truffles, there is no end to it. Supposedly am border line diabetic already and am gaining weight, but i cannot deprive my TASTE BUDS. THANKS FOR THE RECIPE. YOU ARE THE TRUE ANGEL FROM ABOVE. I WILL TRY TO ATTEMPT ON MAKING THIS AND THE REST OF YOUR RECIPES PROBABLY IN AUGUST. I WILL LET YOU KNOW HOW I DID. IF THEY FLOP, PLEASE TELL ME WHY. THANKS ZILLIONES.
