Cocoa & Cashew Truffles

And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.                     -Roald Dahl

My magic cocoa & cashew truffles

2 cups pitted dates

1 cup dried figs

1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

1/2 cup cocoa nibs

1 cup raw cashews

1/4 cup raw cocoa powder

Optional: 1/2 cup  Vanilla Vega protein powder ( I always add it!1)

using the blade of your food processor and the pulse setting

pulse the dates until well chopped.

add the figs and pulse to combine.

Add the cashews,pulse well to combine.

add the coconut and cocoa powder, pulse again,

add the cocoa nibs last and combine well…

roll the dough into 1″ truffles and roll in an equal mix of coconut flakes and cocoa powder ( I used a 1/2 cup of each.)

so delicious.. Add the protein powder to the last pulse  before you roll it in the cocoa coconut dust, to make a protein packed truffle to satisfy your sweet tooth and as a post workout snack!
