raw chocolate + maca truffles (paleo + vegan + whole30)
this recipe is my favorite sweet treat to make these days. these chocolate truffles are rich, fudgy, healthy, EASY and kind of addicting. they’re a healthy alternative during that time of the month when i get chocolate cravings, full of nutrient and antioxidant rich cacao, dates, walnuts and i and organic maca powder for energy, mood and hormone support. (read more about maca powder health benefits here.)
INGREDIENTS (14 truffles)
1 1/2 cups raw walnuts
1 cup (about 10) medjool dates pitted
1/4 cup cocoa powder plus extra for coating
1 tbsp maca powder
a pinch of flakey salt like maldon or pink himalayan
2 tbsp vanilla almond milk
1 / in a food processor or blender grind the walnuts into a fine meal.
2 / add in the rest of the ingredients, and process again until a sticky, uniform dough is formed (you may need to add more liquid and stop and mix with a wooden spoon or spatula in between pulses).
3 / with wet hands form balls with the mixture, then roll on a plate to coat with cacao powder. then place them in a tupperware with a lid in the fridge and enjoy cold.
they pair perfectly with fresh strawberries <3 anders will literally eat a whole batch of these in one go.
