Raw, Vegan, Chocolate Goji Almond Truffles
by Sarah Farsh February 2nd, 2014
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/4 cup oats (optional)
  • 1/4 cup goji berries
  • 2 medjool dates, pitted
  • 4 tbsp raw, organic cacao powder, unsweetened
  • 1 tbsp raw cacao nibs, unsweetened
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract or 1/2 vanilla bean
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch sea salt
  • sliced or ground almonds to dust, or coconut

In VitaMix or food processor, pulse all ingredients together until ground and blended together - but be careful not to over process. You want to consistency to look similar to very crunchy style peanut butter. Roll mixture into individual balls using hands, I used about a tablespoon for each truffle. Roll each ball into topping of choice (almonds) and place onto parchment or wax paper. Freeze for 3 hours and server right out of the freezer for best results. Keep cool.
