Lemon Poppy Seed Truffles

Yesterday was the hardest day yet, and it was only day 3. We had friends over for dinner and they made venison, pasta, and salad. I had my kale, cucumber, orange, lemon juice with a salad . Talk about good smells. The smell of the meat cooking, mmm, and then watching everyone eat it. But i didn’t eat any, even though i wanted to SO badly. I made lemon poppy seed truffles though.They were so good, and they are RAW!! Here is the recipe.

Lemon Poppy Seed Truffles

3/4 Cup Almonds
1/2 Cup Cashews
1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
Lemon Zest
1/8 Cup Poppy Seed
1 Cup plus 4 Dates
2 TBS water

Mix Nuts in food processor until ground like a flour. Add lemon, dates and poppy seeds. Blend well. Add water (or you can omit this if it is moist enough). Roll into bite size pieces and refrigerate. Enjoy!

Good for you for not giving in! I'm wondering if instead of poppy seeds, could I use Chia seeds? I'm trying to use what's in my cupboard before buying more! Thanks, these look scrumptious!

Chia seeds would be a great substitute!
