Raw Chocolate Truffle Recipe
We recently made these delicious raw chocolate truffles (dusted in a lovely sprinkling of strawberry powder) and can only say, man or woman, boy or girl, you just have to try these at home!! So here’s the recipe y’all:
1/2 cup cacao powder
1/4 cup carob powder
1 cup cashew nuts
1 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup liquid sweetener of choice (e.g. cold pressed honey, agave syrup, coconut nectar etc.)
1 Tablespoon coconut oil (melted)
1 tablespoon lucuma powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
pinch of salt
fruit powder/ desiccated coconut/powder of choice
First grind/blend the cashews and sunflower seeds together in a blender or food processor. Next add all the other dry ingredients and blend together. Lastly add the liquid sweetener and melted coconut oil and blend in. From the resulting mixture into truffle sized balls, and roll each one in your favourite powder (could also be coconut if that’s your thing). We used strawberry powder as we had it to hand on that day, and we just love the combination of colour and the fruity zing that accompanies these raw chocolate taste bomb sensations!
The recipe above, can of course, be adapted depending on what ingredients you have available, experiment with your own version and see how long they will stay in your fridge for before someone snaffles them all up… nom nom nom!
