Healthy Easter Recipe: Raw Chocolate Truffles
150g almond flour
250g cacao nibs
1 vanilla bean, cut into thirds
170g raw dates, chopped (or regular dates)
50g pure maple syrup or yacon syrup
Pinch Himalayan salt
1 ripe banana, peeled (not over-ripe, as the flavour will be too strong)
Extra dried fruit or cacao nibs (optional): 1 cup dried, unsweetened cranberries, or chopped dried apricots and ginger; 1/2 cup cacao nibs
HOW TO MAKE
Process cacao nibs, vanilla bean and dates in a blender.
Add syrup, salt, almond flour, banana and blend until everything is well mixed and clumped together.
If you like, mix in extra dried fruit at this stage.
Either roll mixture into small balls for truffles, or press into a square dish for fudge. Place in the fridge to harden.
