1 cup dates
1/4 cup cacao powder
1/2 cup almond flour
1/4 cup maple syrup
3/4 tsp vanilla extract
First, let your dates soak in boiled water for 5-10 minutes.
Next, add the dates (unpitted) to a food processor. Once the dates form a paste like texture, add the cacao powder, almond flour, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Process until ingredients are fully combined.
Scoop one tablespoon of mixture at a time and roll into a ball until mixture is gone.
**If too sticky to roll, add more almond flour (recommend 1/4 cup at a time)
Optional : Roll truffles into shallow bowl of your choosing of cocao powder, shredded coconut, or both!
If you don't finish them all in one sitting, place in fridge.
Beware: If you leave these in the fridge, you may come home to find they have all vanished!
