Superfood Raw Cacao Almond Truffles
- 3/4 cup unsalted almond butter
- 6 dates, pitted and soaked in hot water for 10 minutes
- 1/2 cup raw cocoa nibs
- 1/4 cup hemp seeds
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 cup shredded coconut or 1/8 cup walnuts and 1/8 cup goji berries, processed in the food processor until chopped up.
Place almond butter, dates, cocoa nibs, hemp seeds, vanilla and sea salt in a food processor and process for 1-2 minutes, until everything is completely combined.
Place mixture in a bowl and scoop out, 1 tablespoon at a time and roll into balls. Continue until all of the mixture has been rolled into balls.
Place the topping of your choice into a bowl and take each ball and press it into the topping, pressing the mixture into the truffle.
Place truffles in the refrigerator and refrigerate for 2 hours.
Keep truffles in the fridge or freezer.
If you prefer to not give them a topping, they are yummy plain.
If you do add the topping then you will really have to press the mixture into the truffle because it’s tricky to make it stick.
