~ Raw Cacao Truffles ~
« on: November 30, 2010, 12:49:55 PM »

Not only do these have all of the goodness of raw cacao, they also have quality protein as well as coconut oil.  And they're dairy and gluten free! 

Not sure what to get someone for the holidays?  Well here ya go.  You're welcome  ;)

1 C raw cacao nibs, ground fine (a coffee grinder is perfect)
1 C raw cacao powder
1/4 C sweetener of your choice (honey, maple, brown rice syrup)
3 T extra virgin coconut oil
3 T raw almond or other nut butter
1 t sea salt
dried coconut, chopped nuts, cacao powder, etc to roll the truffles in

Mix all of the ingredients (except what you'll be rolling the truffles in) until well incorporated.  Form into balls, roughly 1T in size.  Roll in your preferred ingredient and chill at least one hour before serving.  They should be kept in the fridge so they remain firm. 

** Whole Foods sells raw cacao, as does your local health food store.
