April 22 Office Snack: Paleo Banana Bread Chocolate Truffles
I saw this a while back on Civilized Caveman Cooking and knew I needed to make it for the next office food event we had. We have a lot of these types of food events, by the way. Remind me to tell you about my company’s version of the Freshman 15*.
This recipe is really good, but it takes a while to make everything if you plan to do it all from scratch, which I did. Scratch meaning: I made the almond butter so that I could then make the banana bread; then I made the cashew butter so I could then make the Paleo “cream cheese.” Making nut butters isn’t hard, just time consuming. Add in the amount of refrigeration wait time and this recipe can take a bit of time to do.
One note on the chocolate coating is that I had to use my entire bag of chocolate chips and I still ran out of chocolate. Not sure how I could have been more sparing with it since it globs onto the balls…no big deal, however, I had plenty of truffles for the event!
Everyone seemed to really love them! Hooray! I love taking in Paleo stuff like this and seeing what people think. Everyone always seems so amazed…of course, I do have to remind them that Paleo definitely does not always equal low cal! ;)
*The “freshman 15” is something that apparently happens quite a bit at my company. And it’s no joke. I’ve easily put on ten pounds since starting there, I think, if not 15. It’s partially due to the fact that I haven’t been able to work out for the last month, but more likely a combination of food in the office and residual breakup coping.
At any rate, this bitch needs to shed some pounds.
Should I try for another Whole30?
