Many years ago, a friend introduced me to the wonders of these chocolate truffles. They are full of superfoods like raw cacao and raw honey, and when you’re dying for chocolate but don’t want to break your healthy-eating streak, these are a great alternative to something more decadent. We rolled them in a few of our favorite toppings, but go crazy: the possibilities for different combinations are endless.
Recipe adapted from Kimberly Snyder.
- Scant 1/2 cup raw cacao powder (high quality cocoa powder will work, too)
- 1 cup almond meal
- 1/4 cup raw honey
- 1/2 tablespoon melted coconut oil (you may need more if the mixture is dry)
- Pinch sea salt
- Unsweetened coconut flakes
- Goji berries (ground up in food processor)
- Bee pollen
Mix the cacao powder, almond meal, honey, coconut oil and salt in a bowl until well combined. Roll into balls, and dip into your favorite toppings. Allow to harden in the freezer before eating.
