No Bake Brownie Truffles {paleo}

I had never bought dates until my mom sent me a delish Moroccan chicken recipe that called for them. I had most of the container left over and didn’t want them to go to waste. I had seen homemade Larabar recipes that called for dates so I tried to make my own. To my delight, my combo of what I had on hand created what tastes like a brownie.

I didn’t know anything about dates so I looked up what the health benefits are -wowza! I should be eating more. One or two of these would be good to eat pre-workout.
