extra cacao powder for coating


1. In a food processor, blend all of the ingredients until very smooth, about 2-3 minutes. If the mixture needs help blending, add 1 tablespoon of water.

2. Lightly coat your hands with coconut oil or spray and roll the dough into tablespoon-sized balls.

3. Place some raw cacao powder in a small bowl and roll the truffles lightly to coat. Tap off excess and place on a sheet of parchment paper.
