Welcome to the opening day (Day #1) of Chocolate and Almonds Theme Week.
Today I'm featuring Almond Butter Truffles from Two Moms in the Raw (Longmont, CO).
These Cacao Almond truffles, nestled in a small white tray, didn't leave me with the same sugar and chocolate buzz I get when I eat a solid, single origin bar. (And some of you will think this is great.)
Instead, these slightly chewy, coconut flavored, almost cake-like cacao "truffles" with tiny bits (I'm assuming these were almond bits) lacked the firmness, denseness and sweetness of many chocolates.
The sweet level (supplied by organic coconut syrup and date paste) in this bar was fine with me. However, if you're craving the dense cocoa butter fat that many chocolates contain, you might prefer a pure chocolate bar or other confection.
Today's Cacao Almond truffles were made with sprouted* ingredients, and were Certified Gluten Free, USDA Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified.
*Two Moms founders believe that scientific research suggests that "sprouted ingredients may increase bioavailability." The suggestion here is that it may be easier for your body to absorb nutrients in this form.
