Author Notes: This is one of two recipes I created – this one being easy, quick yet tasty – you wouldn’t know it’s raw!. Again this recipe is a raw recipe so a great snack for kids or serve at your Christmas party / dinner – people won’t know! Always use Raw nuts when preparing raw foods – they still have the nutritional value you are wanting in live foods. - See more at: http://www.jodiburke.com/recipes/truffles/#sthash.lCqaWGeS.dpuf —jodiburke
Makes: 8 or more balls
cups Hazelnuts – ground to a powder (throw in your Vitamix flour container to do so, if you don’t have a Vitamix, your blender or even a coffee bean grinder will do but do so in small batches)
cup Madjool Dates (pits removed)
teaspoon Cacao (optional – if you want more of a chocolatey flavor)
- Once the Hazelnuts are ground into a flour, throw all ingredients into a processor and process until well mixed and when you take a little bit and roll into a little ball it does so easily – not falling apart or is too sticky.
- At this point you can also roll the balls into Cacao or Coconut, a mixture of both or nothing!! As you can see in the photo I did several varieties! Enjoy and please feel free to leave a comment or share! Thank you!!!
