Coconut, cacao and flax-seed truffles


These truffles or balls are the easiest recipe ever and satisfy even the toughest chocolate craving. This snack is raw, which means very high nutritional value and loads of wonderful benefits.

Ingredients (makes 16)
2 tbsp coconut flour
3/4 cup shredded coconut
1 heaped tbsp ground flax-seeds
3 tbsp raw cacao, cocoa powder or carob powder
1/4 cup coconut oil
2-3 tbsp maple syrup 1 tsp vanilla extract

How to make
Place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix them until well incorporated. Next line a small fridge/ freezer friendly dish with baking paper. Roll the dough into small balls then roll them in desiccated coconut, place in the dish, cover and let them chill in the fridge for an hour before devouring. The truffles keep well in the fridge for up to 1 week, that is if they can last that long! Serve and enjoy as a treat!
