Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 18 Truffles

Ingredients

  • 15 Pitted Medjool Dates
  • 3 tbsp Raw Cacao Powder
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Flour
  • 3 tbsp Almond Butter
  • 3 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 1 tbsp Melted Coconut Oil
  • 1 tsp Maca Powder or Adaptogen of Choice
  • Dash of Cinnamon
  • Dash of Sea Salt

Instructions

  1. Soak dates for 5 minutes in hot water to soften them.

  2. Drain the dates & add them directly to a food processor or high speed blender, along with the rest of the ingredients. 

  3. Blend until the ingredients create a dough-like consistency. If you are using a blender, you may need to stop & scrape down the sides in order for it to continue blending. 

  4. When the "dough" is achieved, separate & roll it into small to medium size balls. I was able to make 18 small truffle balls following this recipe. 

  5. Sift a tsp of raw cacao powder on top of the truffles for a light chocolate dusting! 

  6. Enjoy now or store in the fridge for later!

Recipe Notes

  • I used 15 small Medjool dates for this recipe. If you are using larger dates, you may only need to use 10-12 at most!
  • Although optional, this recipe is a great way to incorporate adaptogens. I used Moodbeli's Bliss Booster which is a blend of maca, cacao, & cayenne.  
  • If you find that your dough is too dry, try adding another 1/2 tsp of melted coconut oil!
