Date Truffles using Oats



Cuisines across the world use dates in small and large quantities, but it is also important to note that the fruit of the date palm tree also comes with a lot of health benefits. These sweet fruits are packed with plenty of nutrients, making them an excellent snack in moderation. Dates normally grow on date palms in small clusters. And the term date comes from the Greek word daktulos, which means fingers. Dates are a good source of various vitamins and minerals, energy, sugar and fiber. It also contains calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium and zinc.






Well here I have come up with a truffle recipe using date as 'Date Truffles using Oats'. These are completely sugar free and easy to prepare as well. Some oats here I have used as a binding element. Before adding the oats, those are dry-roasted and then grinded to a powder texture. Although only walnut and almond are used, still any other dry fruits can be used as desired. These are so perfectly fit to satisfy our hunger pang surely. Also kids'll enjoy to grab while playing mood on ๐Ÿ˜‰
