If you’re reading this site, chances are you have at least a slight interest in health. And if you’re human, chances are you like chocolate. If you don’t like chocolate, there’s a PRETTY good chance you may be an alien. (That’s ok! Don’t leave. You’re welcome here). Anyway, if you’re anything like me, HEALTHY and CHOCOLATE in the same sentence is music to your sweet little ears. That’s why I’m here to tell you about a deliciously healthy autumn treat from our friends at Gnosis Chocolate. Raw Pumpkin Spice Truffles!!
During the fall and winter months, from roughly Halloween to New Years Day, people tend to indulge in lots of sugary sweets. Well, Halloween is over, and you can’t take back the bags of candy you ate, but you CAN move forward into the holiday season prepared with healthy, tasty superfood sweets in hand!

I had the pleasure of trying the pumpkin spice truffles this week (found them at Integral Yoga Natural Foods, if you’re in NYC and you need to have them immediately like I did. If not, you can order them online). They taste so creamy and pumpkiny, you won’t believe they are so good for you. I love all things pumpkin, and all things raw chocolate, so this is a total win-win.
These seasonally-appropriate treats would be the PERFECT gift for a health-minded friend or loved one, to bring home as a treat for Thanksgiving, or just to treat yourself for being so awesome. Order your truffles HERE!
Aside from the truffles, Gnosis also has incredibly delicious raw chocolate bars. Currently my favorites are Dazzling Darkness, Fleur de Sel and Superchoc. Order some! Ok, I’m drooling. Gotta go!
