Chocolate truffles

Inspired by this blog post (in Norwegian), I made chocolate truffles at the weekend. They were absolutely delicious!


125 g dates
3 tbsp ground almonds (I used oven-dried leftovers from making almond milk)
1 tbsp yacon syrup
1 tbsp yacon powder
3-4 tbsp raw cocoa powder
1 heaped tsp maca powder
2-3 tbsp virgin coconut oil (start with 2 and add more if necessary)
1 tsp cinnamon

Place all the ingredients in a food processor and combine until you have an even, sticky mixture. Add a bit more coconut oil (if too dry) or cocoa powder (if too moist) to get the right consistency if necessary. I also added a splash of agave syrup to get the taste exactly right. Roll into balls.

Lastly I rolled them in more of the almond milk leftovers.
