Hi everyone! I hope you are all having a start to the week so far! I am a little under the weather right now so I am focusing on getting my health back in check so I can get back in the gym. Today I have Sarah Jane on the blog to share her Almond Snow Ball Truffle Recipe with you! I seriously can't wait to make these!

Wow, it’s December already! If you are anything like me, the month of December has crept up on you. I’m not sure why this happens – time is always constant. I suppose I have been busier lately and haven’t given enough thought to Christmas. I might end up being one of those frazzled last minute shoppers!
No worries! I whipped up a fast and healthy dessert recipe just for you that is perfect for the busy holiday season! Whether you need a dessert for dinner guests or need to create a last minute gift, these truffles fit the bill! Have fun with this recipe: use cashews instead of almonds, or dried apricots in place of dates, or even throw in some mini chocolate chips!

- Place almonds and dates in a food processor and process until course.
- Add almond butter and vanilla and process again until mixed well and processed a bit more and it starts to stick together.
- Roll the dough into 16 balls, then roll each ball in the coconut.
- Enjoy! Store in the fridge : )
