What you need:

  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup raw cacao powder (or cocoa powder)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup medjool dates (pitted)
  • 1/4 cup goji berries
  • 1/4 pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 tsp of pink himalayan sea salt
  • Agave syrup (optional – depending on the level of sweetness desired)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tbsp sesame seeds, dash of cayenne pepper

 

Directions:

  1. Combine cashews, walnuts, cacao powder, vanilla, salt, goji berries, pumpkin seeds in a food processor
  2. Blend until it looks and feels paste like (you may add agave to add sweetness or extra stickiness if needed)
  3. Remove from the food processor
  4. Grab small tsp size piece of the “dough” and roll into a ball
  5. In a separate bowl add the cinnamon, sesame seeds, cayenne (if you want a bit of heat) and roll the balls to dust them (If you enjoy shredded coconut it would be lovely to roll the truffles in coconut and extra cacao powder)
  6. Place them on a tray and in the freezer for a few hours
  7. Transfer to a tightly sealed container after initially frozen

 

From Ruth: I haven’t ever had these, but the recipe looks interesting.  My only question is why do all these have to look sooooo… well brown.   You know what I am talking about.
