Raw cocoa truffels

IMG_5929

These super delicious truffels are really good for you. The dates provide you with plenty of vitamins and minerals. They are good source of energy, sugar and fiber. Also containing essential minerals such as calcium, iron, phosphorus, sodium, potassium, magnesium and zinc. And vitamins such as thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate, vitamin A and vitamin K. The nuts are high in protein, packed with heart-healthy fats  and minerals like iron and zinc. I use raw cocoa for even more health benefits, since I use it in it’s raw uncooked state the antioxidant level is much higher than in processed cocoa.

Long story short, eat these little gems guilt free. And the best part (for me), my beautiful teen daughter likes them. Dubble yeah!

Simple as can be;

1 cup unsalted nuts, mixed

1 cup pitted dates

1/4 cup raw cocoa

1 tbsp agave syrup

shredded coconut for rolling in.

Blend all the ingredients in the food processor. Adding a splash of water if it appears to be too dry. Then roll in to bite size balls and roll into shredded coconut.

You could add things like dried cranberries, or goji berries if you like.
