Cacao Nut Truffles

I LOVE truffles, but not the highly processed, high-sugar version. These truffles are not only delicious but they are sugar free, all natural and contain no processed junk. Basically, they are the closest thing to guilt-free chocolate you can get!

Ingredients

Makes 24 balls.

300 g (2 cups) natural almonds or walnuts
30 g (¼ cup) dark cocoa powder
½  teaspoon ground cinnamon
1  teaspoon vanilla bean
16 fresh-pitted dates

To Decorate: Coconut, goji berries, nuts, cocoa.

Method

Combine almonds, cocoa and cinnamon in a food processor.

Process 15 seconds until crumbly.

Add vanilla and dates then process until mixture is combined. If squeezed together, it should form into a soft ball.

Add 2 tablespoons of water – only if needed so that the mix forms a soft ball. The mix should be firm and sticky, but not mushy.

Remove power ball mixture from the food processor into a bowl.

Form into 24 round balls.

Roll balls in your choice of garnish.

Store in the fridge covered for up to 3 weeks.
