I AM WHOLE Truffles

Buddha Balls, Bliss Balls, Nut Balls, Energy Balls – I prefer to call mine truffles and put a positive affirmation with them.  Introducing I Am Whole Truffles! This is actually the crust recipe for my raw apple pie, but I loved the crust so much I started rolling them into bite-sized truffles.  These are made with whole foods and no sweeteners are added.  All of the sweetness comes from the antioxidant rich dates.  If you need a dose of healthy fats or your sweet tooth is calling, these are for you.

I AM WHOLE TRUFFLES

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 c shredded unsweetened dried coconut
  • 1/4 c flax meal
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 pinches iodized sea salt
  • 1 c pecans
  • 1 c pitted dates
  • 3 heaping Tbsp almond butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Directions:

  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until well combined.  May have to pulse and scrape down the sides until the consistency is mushy.
  2. Use a tablespoon measuring spoon to scoop out a heaping spoonful into your hands (or I just pinch out a small amount with my fingers)
  3. Using the cup of your hand, form/roll into a truffle.  May have to press together firmly to get ingredients to stick together, but once pressed together it holds its form.
  4. Store truffles in the refrigerator for up to 7 days (they will most likely be gone before then).
  5. Makes 12-15 truffles.
  6. Before serving garnish with an edible flower or fresh herb of your choice.
