Today it suddenly occurred to me how close December is. 19 days to be exact. Wow, how time flies.
I’m one of those persons who love, love, love Christmas. It really is the most wonderful time of the year. Everything about Christmas is just perfect. Well, except that the food isn’t exactly healthy. But we can fix that! I’m working in a couple of recipes on healthy christmas foods. Yum!
I think the best “candy” you can ever have is dried fruits and nuts (and dark chocolate). I don’t like the thought of all the artificial ingredients in store bought candy. Ugh. Therefor I almost always make my own treats for “Friday-candy” or other occasions where you get sweets.
This time I’ve made a new kind of treats. I know they look like these healthy oatmeal bites, but they are nothing like them. I was just “stupid” and rolled the oatmeal-ones in cocoa. They didn’t need that. These truffles, however, definitely need the cocoa. Well, they taste good without the cocoa, but is really adds a nice touch. And cocoa is an antioxidant! (source)
So instead of the usual christmas sweets grape truffles or two (or five, if you are like me). They are so good! I promise.
