Quinoa Date Nut Truffles [Vegan]

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :
I adapted these truffles from the Date Nut Pop’ems recipe in Dr. Joel Fuhrman’s Disease-Proof Your Child. There are so many variations to making these, but since I am quinoa crazy lately, I thought why not try it out in these. The creamy, crunchy texture of the quinoa makes an irresistible combination with the chocolaty nuttiness of these truffles.

Another nutrient-rich and delish snack your whole family will love. Have the kids help make these too! Oh what fun!
