Serves 20
Prep time 3 hours

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups raw cashews (soak at least 2 hours in filtered water)
  • 1/4 cup raw cacao or cocoa (unsweetened 100%) powder (raw option = cacao)
  • 1/4 cup organic maple syrup or agave (raw option = agave, but maple syrup is high in minerals)
  • 3 organic medjool dates
  • 3 Tablespoons raw coconut oil (cold-pressed)
  • 2 Teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon pink himalayan salt
  • list of topping options in the steps below

Directions

Step 1
Blend all the ingredients in your mini food processor. Make sure mixture is smooth and creamy in appearance.
Step 2
Divide mixture into at least 20 portions. Roll each portion in your palms in a ball shape. Place on a platter and put in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
Step 3
Select your toppings; pick at least 3:

pomegranate powder, lucuma powder, chai flavor (mix cinnamon, cardamon, vanilla powder in a 2:1:1 ratio), bee pollen, cacao nibs, cacao powder, cocoa powder (unsweetened 100%), raw chopped nuts, goji berries or coconut flakes (mix with vanilla powder)

You can mix these, do truffles in half of one or another, or just do them straight. Have fun with it!
