Gray, gloomy days here, but a new recipe can always spice things up! I just came across a fun recipe you may enjoy. It's super-easy and it's Date-Walnut Truffles. 

Ingredients:

1 and 1/4 cup walnuts
2 cups pitted dates
1/2 cup sliced slmonds
3 Tbs almond butter
2 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 cup sunflower seed
1 cup unsweetened coconut (I couldn't find unsweetened and used the regular kind)

Directions:

Add the walnuts, dates and almonds to a food processor and pulse until the nuts are broken and the dates form a sticky paste. Add almond butter and coconut oil and pulse to combine.
Add the sunflower seeds and 1/4 cup of the coconut and pulse until just combined.
Scoop and roll mixture into 1-inch balls. Make sure these are tightly molded by rubbing them between the palms of your hands.

Place remaining coconut on plate and roll balls in coconut, pressing to adhere. Place in sealed container until ready to eat.

These make a great hostess gift, everyone loves them!
