Pecan Truffles with Hemp Seeds
I have been MIA from the blog since last Friday because this week getting back to the city was hectic. I had a busy work schedule, I was preparing for my workshop, I had a little touch of homesickness and I was physically tired all week. Now I'm relaxing on this glorious NYC night ready to start my weekend. I have two more workshops before Christmas and then I'm home for almost two weeks visiting my family!
I love this time of year but my sweet tooth is always out of control. I served these truffles at my workshop tonight and I wanted to have them on the blog so everyone can enjoy them. These are raw and totally delish.
Pecan truffle recipe:
1/2 cup of raw pecans
2 tbsp of super food and grain mix (Trader Joe's)
5-6 pitted medjool dates
1/4 cup of hemp seeds
Blend everything except the hemp seeds in your food processor until it is a sticky paste. Form into truffles and roll in the hemp seeds and serve.
I also made truffles without dates that were more crumbly and very peanut buttery.
If you don't have dates and want to forgo the nuts, use this recipe:
4 tbsp of peanut butter
1/2 cup of steel cut oats
2 tbsp of coconut sugar
Blend everything in your food processor and form into truffles. Freeze or refrigerate. I crumbled up the truffles and sprinkled over my nana ice cream yesterday. Nom!
Stay tuned for more holiday recipes!
