Raw Truffles

20131223-180024.jpg

I went to Scotland last week to visit Mr (not entirely) Grain Free’s family and wanted to take some home made Paleo treats for them. I decided to try these out on my own parents before making them to give to his. I have to say, I was very pleased with how they turned out. They are ridiculously easy and quick to make and unbelievably moreish!

Raw Truffles
(makes around 20, depending on size)

1 cup sunflower seeds
9 medjool dates
3 tbsp cocoa powder
200g coconut cream concentrate
1 tsp vanilla
Pinch of sea salt
1/4 cup desiccated coconut

Melt the coconut cream concentrate in a Bain Marie.
Blitz sunflower seeds in a food processor.
Add in the dates and whizz until it forms a thick mass.
Add the rest of the ingredients and process until everything is well mixed.
Take small teaspoonfuls of the mixture and form into balls.
Roll in desiccated coconut.
When all the truffles are done, place in the fridge for at least 30 mins to firm up before serving.

About Gorgeously Grain-Free

I love food. I live to eat. Some may say I'm obsessed with food. However I want to feel and look good. Since I gave up grains and sugar and adopted a 'primal', whole foods diet, I have never felt (or looked) better!
