RAW CACAO TRUFFLES
2 cups whole walnuts
2 ½ cups Medjool dates, pitted
1 cup raw cacao (+2-3 Tbsp to coat)
¼ tsp. Himalayan pink salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 vanilla pod, scraped (or 1 tsp. ground vanilla)
Optional for coating: Cacao powder, shredded coconut, and crushed raw almonds
Blend walnuts in food processor, until finely ground. Add the cacao and salt, pulse to combine. Add the dates one at a time while the processor is running. If the mixture doesn't easily stick together, add a few more dates. Place the date mix in the fridge for a couple of hours to cool. Use a spoon and your palms to make round truffles and lightly coat them in cacao powder or other options. You can store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
It's been a while since my last recipe post, but I've been wanting to share one of my favorite desserts. So good.
