Fig, Date & Cacao Truffles

Since first making these I virtually haven't stopped. SO delicious (if you are a chocolate lover) and with so  many health benefits...
     
  • 1 Cup figs
  • 1 Cup dates
  • 1 Cup desiccated coconut
  • ½ Cup walnuts (can substitute with Flax meal, almonds, nut butter, pepitas, tahini etc)
  • ½ Cup raw cacao powder (or carob)
  • ¼ – ½ Cup coconut oil (add gradually)

Roughly chop fruit, add to food processor, pulse a few times.
Add coconut, walnuts, cacao powder then process till smooth.

Finally, add coconut oil, blend till smooth and glossy.
Roll into walnut sized balls, roll in coconut, cacao powder or nut/seed meal.

Variations: Absolutely endless. Different dried fruits, nuts, seeds, tahini, nut butteer.
