Chocolate Mind Truffle | Temper-lifting recipes
Dark chocolate is a power player for brain health, with flavanols, fiber and minerals. Plus, these truffles add the benefits of nuts, seeds, and whole grains for brain health. You can use any combination of nut butters or seeds, such as almond butter and pistachios, or peanut butter and pecans. If you have nut allergies, swap sunflower butter for the nut butter.
