Chocolate Almond Butter Cherry Bombs

These chocolate almond butter cherry bombs are SUPER easy and YUMMY treats that I adapted from the food blog Oh She Glows. They are vegan and gluten free and absolutely dee-lish! They are a fast and fun treat that is a great project for kids and mostly refined sugar-free, except for the little bit of chocolate chips depending on the brand. Their are several ways to get creative with the flavors and change them up a bit (see notes at the bottom). Make ’em, they take 15 minutes and are sure to please!

Raw Carrot Cake Truffles

These tasty delights are easy, healthy and SO dee-lish. To me they represent an alternative to my favorite decadent treat of dense carrot cake with gooey cream cheese frosting. These Raw Carrot Cake Truffles get ya pretty close- but in a much less moment on the lips lifetime on the hips sort of way. If you did want to up the anti however and dip in some melted white chocolate or even some vanilla scented organic cream cheese, I would never tell.
