Over the next couple of weeks I will be posting some of my favorite Christmas recipes for you to try.  I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

Chocolate and Carob and Nuts – oh my!

I LOVE both of these recipes and make them every year {ok, I admit, I make them all year round!}.  The best part – besides how delicious they are of course is that they are super-duper easy!  As a Mom of 5, with a 2-week old baby, plus 2 step-children, easy is a MUST this year!

Remember to share, they can be a great present for friends, teachers, neighbors or anyone else you want to say Happy Holidays to!  Just make sure they don’t have a nut allergy first.  🙂


Chocolate Truffles

1 cup raw walnuts, unsoaked
1 cup  almonds, unsoaked
1/2 tsp  salt
15 pitted dates, unsoaked
1/4 cup raisins or dried cranberries
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
1 Tbs agave or honey
2 Tbs  water
1/2 cup shredded coconut or 1/2 cup extra cocoa powder (to roll in)

  • Place the nuts & salt in a food processor fitted with the S-blade and process until finely ground.
  • Add the dates, cocoa powder, agave and vanilla process until the mixture starts to stick together. Add water as needed & process briefly.
  • Form into balls and roll in coconut or cocoa powder






Peanut Butter Carob Balls (makes 30 small balls)

  • 1/2 cup carob powder
  • 1/2 cup honey (I used raw)
  • 1/2 crunchy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 ground flax seed meal

Mix all ingredients together by hand. Form the batter into bite size balls and roll them in shredded coconut.


Yummy!  Enjoy!
