Almond Chia Truffles

Oh the Yum that is Life!!!

Check these out if you are looking for a quick sugar fix...

2 Cups Almonds Soaked 8 hours and rinsed
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 cup Coconut Oil - warmed to liquid state
1 cup pitted dates

Equipment: Processor fitted with an "S" Blade, rubber spatula Fun Creative spirit and taste testers... Let the FUN Begin...

First, Pulse the Almonds until they are the size of coarse sand. Add in the Chia and all the powders and mix adding the coconut oil at the end. Then add the dates one or two at a time to prevent pre-mature balling and pulse until a dough forms.

Here is where the REAL Fun begins. This is a great children's activity- let children use spoons to scoop and form small balls. Roll each ball in cacao powder, Nibs, shredded coconut, Hemp seeds or any other creative substance you choose.

For best results scrape the dough onto a pie plate or a bowl and refrigerate to set 15 - 20 minutes before scooping and rolling.
