Mint chocolate chip oat cookies are the featured recipe today - only 69 calories per cookie and only 2.9 g fat - not too bad. Another lower fat cookie is a macaroon if you like them (or meringues with crushed peppermint chips in them - yum)

15-Minute Dark Chocolate Truffles
Add this winning combination of chocolate and prunes to your Healthiest Way of Eating menu!

Prep and Cook Time: 15 minutes
Ingredients:

1/2 cup pitted prunes
1/4 cup pitted dates
3 TBS almond butter
1 TBS maple syrup
3 TBS unsweetened cocoa
1/2 cup finely grated unsweetened coconut

Directions:
In a food processor, drop the prunes and dates through the feed hole one by one. Scrape the processor bowl and run until the prunes and dates are smooth.
Add remaining ingredients except for the coconut. Run until smooth and scrape the bowl as needed.
Roll the mixture into 12 one-inch balls and roll in coconut to coat. Refrigerate for at least 1/2 hour.
Makes 12 pieces

Healthy Cooking Tips:

If you don't have a food processor, this recipe may be done by hand, which, of course, will take longer (but well worth it). Cut dates and Prunes in quarters. Toss with 1 TBS of the cocoa and chop the mixture until minced. Chopping with the cocoa keeps the mixture from sticking together. Place the chopped mixture in a mixing bowl and combine with remaining cocoa, almond butter and maple syrup. Knead the mixture on your cutting board until well combined. This version will be chunkier than those prepared in the food processor. Continue with the recipe described in step 3.
