Banana Truffles+ Banana Chocolate Cookie Dough Split

In my last post, I included a photo of my breakfast from earlier this week- a Green Pineapple Cooler- with a sneak peek at a snack on the side, and today I’m very excited to share the recipe for that treat! These bite-size Banana Truffles are packed with protein and fiber so they go perfectly alongside your morning smoothie or as an energizing snack during the day.  They are all raw but they don’t require a dehydrator or blender and are super simple and speedy to make.

Experiment with rolling your banana truffles in other ingredients to add extra flavor- cocoa powder, sesame seeds or chopped almonds! I tried raw cacao nibs and it was delicious!banana truffles 5

For our second banana treat, I’d like to share another quick and easy dessert that I came up with as a way to use leftover Cashew Cacao Cookie Dough Dip. This Banana Chocolate Cookie Dough Split takes just a minute to put together when you have the cookie dough made ahead of time.  It’s all raw and sugar-free so it might feel like an indulgence, but you’ll feel great after eating it!
