RECIPE | RAW Coco-Nutty Rough "Truffles"


These little bite sized balls of goodness are deceivingly healthy! You will think you are eating something very naughty when in fact there is nothing bad in them! I made these tonight with my 5 year old (who loves them!), they are super easy and quick to make and impressive to serve with a cup of tea after dinner!

Ingredients:
1/2 cup almonds
1 cup walnuts
1/2 cup organic raisins
3-4 medjool dates
1/2 cup shredded or dessicated coconut plus a little extra 
1 tablespoon cold pressed organic coconut oil
1 teaspoon filtered water

Directions:
Mix nuts and coconut in food processor until fine. Add remaining ingredients until it all resembles the texture of breadcrumbs. 
Roll them into balls, they will make 10-12 larger pieces or around 20 smaller bite sized pieces.
Once done, roll them in the extra shredded or dessicated coconut to serve.
Refrigerate for at least an hour to set.
That's it! Easy peasy deliciousness!


Tip: When rolling them into balls they may fall apart a little, if this happens just pick up the mixture, squeeze into a ball shape then gently shape, once they are rolled in coconut and put in the fridge they will set and hold together.

Enjoy!
