Raw Superfood Truffles
In celebration of International Women’s week I am sharing this beautiful truffle recipe. These rich truffles are a great alternative to chocolate bar or as a sweet treat after dinner. I’ve made them for dinner parties and my friends have been so surprised when I’ve told them that they are raw, healthy and sugar free! No baking needed, just a little love, mixing and overnight soaking.
For the specialised ingredients I have adding links to the websites – however you can use alternatives. If you have something in mind but don’t know whether it would work just comment below!
2 tbsp. chia seeds
1 tbsp. Kaizen Living cocoa powder
1 serving TRKG protein
25ml TRKG salted espresso syrup
50g gluten free mornflakes pinhead oats
5 dates, pitted and chopped finely
4 cubes dark chocolate
4 tbsp. Sukrin almond flour
1 tbsp. Dr Zaks coconut oil
40g Avocado (needs to be soft so it can be mashed till smooth)
100ml Rude Health almond milk
Chop and soak the dates in the syrup and put to one side. Combine chia seeds, oats, flour, protein and milk into a mixing bowl and stir through – put to one side.
In a pan melt together the dark chocolate, cacao, syrup and coconut oil, making sure to stir continuously so the mixture doesn’t lump together or burn. Pour the mixture into a separate mixing bowl.
Finally mash the avocado till smooth then add this into the mixture with the soaked date/syrup mixture too. Blend the chocolate sauce and avocado mix together till smooth. Then add this to the oat mixture.
Once cooled add the bowl into the fridge to soak. Leave for at least 2 hours.
The mixture should have soaked up some of the moisture leaving a dryer, paste like consistency. Using a spoon and your hands, add a small spoonful of mixture into your hand and roll into a bowl. I then roll the ball in cocoa powder but dried coconut, hemp seeds or chia seeds work but for the ‘truffle’ effect I think the cocoa is much nicer. Do this until all the mixture has been used.
Store in the fridge and best served cool.
