Raw Vegan Cacao Superfood Truffles

It must be my lucky day – two healthy truffle recipes in one week! In case you can’t tell, I’m a truffle addict. This Raw Vegan Cacao Superfood Truffles recipe has been kindly shared with us from Maz at Sadhana Kitchen. This version has a few more nuts than our last truffle recipe, but both are equally as tasty and the best thing you can do is try them both!

Appliances you will need:
  • Food Processor
 
Ingredients (makes 15-25 truffles, depending on how big you roll them):
  • 1 cup  almonds (www.veggiewave.com/soaking_chart)
  • 1 cup cashews (www.veggiewave.com/soaking_chart)
  • 1/2 cup hemp seeds
  • 3/4 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut plus extra for rolling
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup brown rice syrup (depending on how sweet you want them)
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
 
After preparing all of the above:
 
1. Place all ingredients except for the last three in a food processor and mix until the consistency of almond meal (very fine crumbs).
2. Slowly add coconut oil, brown rice syrup, vanilla and good vibes until a sticky dough forms.
3. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and shape into balls by rolling between the palm of your hands.
4. Finish by rolling in shredded coconut and place in the fridge until ready to serve.

 
TIP: Check out VeggieWave’s Soaking Chart with lots of hints and tips on soaking your seeds and nuts to get the most out of them nutritionally and making them easier to digest.
