These are really simple, and incredibly tasty. Not only that, but they’ll keep in the fridge (in a sealed container) for about a week, so it you make up a batch on a Monday, you’ll have snacks on hand for when you need a bit of a lift. Best of all?  They are made of healthy ingredients such as dates, cashews, walnuts, maca and raw chocolate!

Makes: 12 truffles
Ingredients

  • ½ cup cashews, soaked 2-4 hours
  • ½ cup walnuts, soaked 2-4 hours
  • 8 large medjool dates, pitted
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons Sprout Living Chocolate Maca Protein Powder
  • 2 tablespoons cacao nibs
  • about 2 tablespoon cacao powder, for dusting

Instructions

  1. Drain and rinse the cashews and walnuts and transfer them to a food processor along with the dates. Process until well incorporated.
  2. With the motor running, slowly add the melted coconut oil. Blend again until very smooth.
  3. Add the Chocolate Maca protein powder and puree until completely incorporated. Add cacao nibs and pulse a few times until mixed together.
  4. Transfer to a small bowl, cover, and refrigerate for one hour until the truffle dough is hard enough to roll into balls.
  5. Roll into balls about 1 tablespoon in size, coat in cacao powder, and enjoy!
  6. Store in the refrigerator.

Maca is incredible – you’ll find it in most health food shops in powdered form, and it smells almost caramel-ey. In addition to tasating delicious, it’s also an amazing stamina-enhancer, an aphrodisiac (score), a mood-leveller (great for hormonal imbalances, menopause, anxiety and depression), and an intense energy-booster.
