My most popular posts are those that involve baking and sweets. I understand why. Usually, these recipes are at the top of all black lists -no matter which diet you choose to follow!
The beauty of whole, healthy 'primal' products, is that if you have a bit of imagination and you dare to be adventurous, you can treat yourself to built-free bakes, cakes and yes...truffles! At least once in a while!
What you need
•a food processor
(makes 45 truffles)
•50 g of coconut shreds (unsweetened and pure);
•140 g of raw macadamia nuts
•170 g of raw almonds
•2 tbs of flaxseed
•2 tbs of chia seeds
•1 tbsp of cinnamon
•1 cup of fresh orange juice
•zest of 2 oranges
•2 tbsp of agave nectar (or maple syrup)
•2 tbsp of cacao nibs
•6 tbsp of cacao powder for coating
•8 (Medjool) dates or 10 'regular' dates, unpinned
What you do
•put the coconut, macadamia nuts, almonds, linseed, chia seeds, cinnamon, orange zest, agave nectar, cacao nibs and dates in your food processor and blitz the ingredients till their finely ground
•add the fresh orange juice bit by bit, till the mixture turns into a sticky (but not too wet) paste;
•take the gooey paste into your hands and roll small balls (bite size)
•put them on a flat surface and into the fridge for approx. 1 hour
•coat them with cacao powder and serve
I haven't tried it yet but I am pretty sure it is possible to freeze the balls (uncoated).
