Easy Marzipan Truffles

I’m going to share one of my very personal secrets today. As a snack loving vegan, I have some favorite snacks (of course!). I believe in a balanced diet, with no calorie restrictions. Which in other words, also means that I make space for a piece of chocolate once in a while. That doesn’t mean I eat chocolate everyday, but I’m definitely not avoiding it for good. I eat healthy snacks such as fruits, vegetables and nuts in the everyday life. And then I make room for these ‘Easy Marzipan Truffles’ in the weekend.

BENEFITS ABOUT HOMEMADE MARZIPAN 

  • It’s refined sugar freeoil free and free from glucose syrup and preservativesWhen you go to the local grocery store and search for pre-made marzipan, you’ll find marzipan that has been stuffed with all these things. Homemade marzipan is 100% natural and nutrient rich.
  • The intestinal system won’t use the same energy to digest these healthy truffles (as if using pre-made marzipan)
  • Homemade marzipan has a lot more flavor than the marzipan you’ll find a the grocery store. I gotta tell, after trying homemade marzipan – you won’t ever buy the pre-made marzipan again.
