These Energy Truffles are fantastic to have on hand. Be imaginative, and alter some of the proportions of seeds/nuts to what you have on hand. I tend to make most of mine with the second recipe using dried dates as it is cheaper. These truffles are fantastic for nourishing your skin, hair and nails as they are full of vitamins and minerals.
Ingredients for Energy Truffles:
1 cup sunflower seeds
3/4 cup pumpkin sees
1/2 cup cashew nuts or almonds (or mixture)
2 Tbsp Sesame seeds
2 Tbsp ground linseed
6 large medjool dates
1 cup desiccated coconut
4 Tbsp cacao powder
2 large Tbsp coconut oil
8 Tbsp filtered water
1 Tbsp raw honey or maple syrup (optional)
Place first 4 ingredients into food processor and pulse, then add ground linseed and medjool dates, process until dates and seeds finely chopped, then add in the coconut and cacao powder, process briefly before adding in the oil and water.
Makes approx 22-24 energy truffles.
Optional – if allergy to nuts, could replace with extra sunflower and/or pumpkin seeds.
Enjoy and be nourished!
Variation (using dried dates) –
1 1/4 cups sunflower seeds
1 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup almonds or walnuts
1/2 cup cashew nuts
2 Tbsp whole linseed
1 1/4 cups dried dates
2 Tbsp coconut oil
5 Tbsp cacao powder
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
1 Tbsp psyllium husk or chia seed
1/3-1/2 cup filtered water
Process first five ingredients in food processor until dates well combined with nuts/seeds. Add in remaining ingredients apart from water and process until well combined. Then add in water, until mixture comes together. You may need to use your fingers to ensure well combined.
Makes approx 30 energy truffles. ENJOY
