This recipe is the ultimate guilt-free dessert! Completely sugar-free, it still packs a sweet punch with its various superfood ingredients. Bite sized and perfect for any time of the day.
Prep: 20 mins | Serves: Approx 16-20 truffles
- 2 tbsp goji berries
- 4 tbsp pumpkin seeds
- 3 tbsp chia seeds
- 6 tbsp almonds
- 1 tbsp cacao nibs
- 2 tbsp raw cacao powder
- 8 pitted Medjool dates
- 2 tbsp almond butter
- Pinch of salt
- Optional: desiccated coconut, melted dark chocolate
Grind the goji berries, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds and almonds in a food processor until you have a coarse mixture. The coarseness depends on the texture you want your truffles to be.
Add the remaining ingredients – cacao nibs, cacao powder, dates, almond butter and salt to the grinder. Pulse again till the mixture comes together. It should stick together easily when you squeeze it in your hand. Add a spoon or two of water, only if necessary (is contingent on the moisture in the dates).
Take dollops of the mixture and roll into balls. Store in the refrigerator for upto two weeks in an airtight container.
Optional: You can roll your truffles in dessicated coconut, or dip them in melted chocolate (or dip and roll!) before refrigerating. More flavour the better!
