Whole Food Ingredients

These sweet potato vegan truffles are made with 5 simple ingredients. Here’s all you need:

  • sweet potato – you need baked, cooled and mashed sweet potato
  • almond flour – I used blanched almond flour, you can use store-bought almond flour or make your own by finely blending blanched almonds.
  • peanut butter – you’ll need natural peanut butter with no additives like salt or sugar
  • dates – use regular dates. They sweeten the pumpkin truffles naturally and are rich in fiber and minerals.
  • vanilla – adds a great hint and enhances the flavor of the balls
  • cocoa powder – needed for rolling, any cocoa powder works, adds a nice chocolate flavor
