Choc-Orange Lunch Box Truffles

These chocolate bliss balls feel like a really decadent treat but are actually a healthy every day snack. Great in the lunch box or with a coffee for all the Mums and Dads out there. I love making these during the winter months when our orange tree is providing us with delicious fresh oranges.



13 medjool dates - pitted

1 cup dried cranberries

3/4 cup rolled oats

1/4 cup desiccated coconut (plus extra for rolling)

2 tsp coco powder

zest of 1 orange

3 Tablespoons of freshly squeezed orange juice


Place all ingredients in a food processor and blitz until smooth. Shape into small round balls with your hands and roll in desiccated coconut or for a slightly more sophisticated finish roll in coco powder or drinking chocolate. 


Keep in an air tight container in the fridge. Makes 21
