Simple Whole Food Ingredients
In this recipe steamed pumpkin, coconut flour, dates and cinnamon are blended in a delicious, fluffy dough. Then are rolled into balls and covered with raw cacao powder to create a healthy no-bake treat. Here are the 5 simple ingredients you need:
- pumpkin – I had some leftover steamed pumpkin that I simply mashed. You can also use plain, unsweetened canned pumpkin puree.
- coconut flour – it is needed to thicken the pumpkin mixture, improve the texture, and add fluffiness to the truffles
- dates – use regular dates. They sweeten the pumpkin truffles naturally and are rich in fiber and minerals.
- cinnamon – pairs perfectly with the pumpkin flavor
- cacao powder – I used raw cacao powder as it is rich in antioxidants and many minerals. It adds a perfect chocolate hint to the truffles and is a whole food ingredient. If you don’t have it, you can use cocoa powder instead.
