Oh my. These truffles.
I don't know that "truffles" is quite the right word, but couldn't decide between balls, bites, or truffles and truffles sound the least weird. So here we are with some raw brownie truffles.
They're reminiscent of Larabars but pack less sweetness, more quality fat, and includes some super amazing ingredients. They're a delicious dessert (read: not a snack and never a breakfast) that comes together in just a few minutes!
Make these for your next par-tay, take them to work, propose to your girlfriend with them, mail them to me. Just make them.
Raw Paleo Brownie Truffles
1 c medjool dates, pitted
1/2 c cashews
1/4 c coconut manna
3 T cocoa
2 T unsweetened almond butter
2 T raw honey
1 tsp of vanilla
2 tsp hemp seed powder
2 scoops collagen peptides, optional
Dash of sea salt
Finely shredded coconut, for rolling
Cocoa, for rolling
In a blender or food processor, add dates and cashews then blend on medium-high or until dates and cashews are chopped finely. Add coconut manna, cocoa, almond butter, honey, vanilla, hemp seed powder, collagen, and salt and blend until mixture is thick, sticky, and well combined. Roll mixture tightly into ping pong ball size truffles and roll in coconut or cocoa, then place on a parchment paper lined sheet. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the fridge.
