Raw Organic Cacao Truffles

TheScreamingArtichoke_CacaoTruffles

For anyone who likes to dabble in raw/organic/wellness foods you probably have all these ingredients at home. I did, but mostly because my dear friend regularly visits supermarket superstores and dumps huge bags of various superfoods on me that I then have to come up with imaginative recipes for (for months to come in the case of things like raw cacao and coconut flour). I quite like being forced to be creative, and when I’m working from my home studio sometimes the best distraction is one that requires a bit of thinking and not too many calories, case in point. So thank you, Bella, for helping maintain my sanity.

These are actually pretty fab and I am going to hide them in the freezer for as long as I can as it’s the place the boys look last when they’re on a fridge binge. Shhhhh.

I feel that if I had some Medjool dates in the pantry they could’ve been even better, so try that if you have some handy.

Makes approximately 16 truffles

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 3 tbs raw organic cacao powder
  • 2 tbs raw organic coconut flour
  • 3 tbs organic honey
  • 2 tbs organic molasses
  • 1 tbs organic coconut oil (melted)
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1/4 cup desiccated coconut

METHOD:

  1. With the exception of the desiccated coconut, mix together all of the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Mix in the honey, molasses and coconut oil until well combined.
  3. Using heaped teaspoons of mixture, roll in your hands until you have even sized balls.
  4. Roll each ball in coconut.
  5. Freeze until hard. In hot weather they’re also best stored in the freezer until ready to serve.
