Cinnamon Spiced Date Truffles

Cinnamon-Spiced Date Truffles | Danielle Joy In the midst of being surrounded by candy during this time of the year, I present to you a sugar-free alternative: Cinnamon-Spiced Date Truffles.
These are sweet, yet guilt-free, and absolutely delicious.

Dates are known for having numerous health benefits. Because they have a low glycemic index they are a great source of lasting energy. Cinnamon slows the rate at which the stomach empties after meals, reducing the rise in blood sugar after eating. This, too, has a positive effect on your energy! So go ahead and indulge in these sweet treats knowing that, while your kids bounce around the house post-sugar rush, you’ll be able to keep up with them ;).
