Reminicent of an Almond Joy, these truffles are a great pick-me-up and they take only 15 min to make! Kids love to make (and eat) these too! They are great to pack in a lunch or for travelling.
7 medjool dates, seed removed
2 tablespoon cacao (or carob) powder
1 teaspoon lucuma powder
1 teaspoon maca powder
1½ tablespoon raw honey
2 cup shredded unsulphered coconut
goji berries, soaked 2 hours, (opt)
In a food processor, blend dates, cacao/carob, lucuma, maca, and honey (add goji berries too if using). A ball should form. Then add coconut and blend again. This will form little chunks. Remove a tbsp size amount and roll into ball. Insert an almond in the center and seal the truffle around it.
That’s it! Easy Peasy! ;0)
(if you want to get more creative you can use a cookie cutter to shape the balls into something else)
