These energy boosting, mood balancing, Raw Cacao Truffles made with maca powder, make for a perfect, healthy, vegan dessert or mid-day snack!
Soak dates for 5 minutes in hot water to soften them.
Drain the dates & add them directly to a food processor or high speed blender, along with the rest of the ingredients.
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.
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.
Sift a tsp of raw cacao powder on top of the truffles for a light chocolate dusting!
Enjoy now or store in the fridge for later!
