Raw Chocolate Almond Truffles Recipe
If you think raw chocolate almond truffles must be a difficult, unhealthy recipe to have on the menu; think again. One of Australia’s most-loved nutritionists, Lola Berry, has created the truffle dream. Easy to make, packed full of anti-oxidants and good fats and they taste incredible.
– 2 cups medjool dates, pitted
– 1 cup almond meal
– 1 cup chopped walnuts
– 1/2 cup of organic goji berries
– 2 tablespoons extra-virgin coconut oil
– 2 table spoons Almond Breeze unsweetened almond milk
– melted 1⁄2 cup raw cacao powder
– 1⁄4 cup raw cacao nibs
– 1/2 cup organic desiccated coconut
1. Place dates, almond meal, walnuts, coconut oil, almond milk, goji berries and cacao powder in a blender or food processor and whizz until well combined.
NOTE: The mixture should be a bit crumbly, but not too dry, so add another teaspoon of coconut oil if you need to.
2. Next, stir in the cacao nibs, but don’t blend them because we want them to stay super-crunchy.
3. Finally roll the mixture into little balls and toss through the desiccated coconut.
4. Place in the fridge for 2 hours to set (if you can hold off eating them for that long)!
Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
TIP: Medjool dates are usually found in the refrigerated fruit and veggie section of supermarkets, but if you can’t find any, use regular dried dates, but you’ll need to soak them in water for 20 minutes so that they’re sticky enough.
RESCU Recommends: Make a big batch of these on a Sunday and you’ll have healthy treats to reach for when you’re craving that 3.30pm chocolate hit!
