Nothing says comfort food like a sweet dessert. After you push your
dinner plate to the side, you can pull out these truffles made with
ashwagandha and ojas building dates. They’re sure to make you and your adrenals smile.
10 dates, dried and pitted
2 teaspoons ashwagandha powder
½ cup dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon coconut oil, refined
Sea salt and sesame seeds for topping
Using a blender or food processor, blend the dates and ashwagandha
into a paste. Roll into small balls. If too sticky to shape, refrigerate
for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, heat chocolate chips and coconut oil in a
small pan over medium heat. Stir frequently. Dunk the date balls into
the chocolate to coat, and rescue with a spoon. Place on a baking sheet
lined with parchment paper and sprinkle with sea salt and sesame seeds.
Refrigerate or freeze to set chocolate. Eat while slightly chilled to
