Cocoa powder plains the main role in this recipe, providing fiber, iron, magnesium, and powerful polyphenol antioxidants. Note that antioxidant content is higher in raw cocoa powder (as it is minimally processed) but also has a slightly more bitter taste.

Ingredients: - 1 c unsweetened cocoa powder

- ½ c unsweetened applesauce

- 3 tbsp honey (or agave)

- ¼ tsp peppermint extract


1. In a medium bowl, stir together all 4 ingredients.

2. Chill for at least 30 minutes, or up to 3 days.

3. Working with a heaping tablespoon at a time, roll the chocolate mixture into a ball, and place on wax paper or in individual mini muffin paper liners.

4. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Makes 16 truffles.
