This week for the positive project, we will prepare ourselves for the week by making a batch or two of wholesome & nourishing snacks. Perfect for when you are feeling like a little afternoon pick me up! To help you feel inspired, we have shared our recipe below for these irresistible cocoa & dandelion root truffles. Enjoy!
1 cup brazil nuts or almonds
1 cup medjool dates, pitted
1 cup dessicated coconut
100g good quality dark chocolate
1 tbsp ground dandelion root*
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
3 tbsp melted coconut oil or butter
a pinch of sea salt
*if you don't have dandelion root, you can use ground chicory, or ground coffee. Alternatively it can be left out all together.
In a food processor, add all of the ingredients. Blend for 1-2 minutes, or until the mixture starts to mix together like a dough.
Use your hands to form small balls. Place in the fridge for at least half an hour to set.
The truffles can be kept at room temperature, but we find they are best kept in the fridge, or the freezer for a fudgey frozen treat.
Makes around 20 truffles.
