I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, but when I do have a craving for something decadent I want it to be rich, creamy and delicious. Know what I mean?
And that’s how I came up with this simple recipe for truffles. They are indeed rich, creamy, delicious and very easy to make. So here you go:
Simple Truffle Recipe
(Yields 16-20 truffles)
1 cup raw, smooth almond butter
6 tablespoons raw cacao + ¼ cup for rolling your truffles
4 tablespoons maple syrup
¼ cup shredded coconut
¼ cup hulled hemp seeds
1. Combine almond butter, 6 tablespoons raw cacao and maple syrup in a medium bowl. Blend well. It will look like a thick chocolate frosting.
2. Using a spoon, take about 1 tablespoon from the bowl and roll between your clean palms making it into a ball.
3. Now gently roll the ball in a small dish with your extra cacao (or coconut or hempseeds)
4. Place your coated truffle balls into small baking cups or directly on a platter.
5. Repeat process for the remaining truffle mixture. Depending on the size of your truffles you should get 16 – 20 truffles… unless you eat a few as you make them.
6. Place your truffles into the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve. And store any uneaten truffles in the refrigerator.
