Start the New Year with Tam's Truffles
Made with real food ingredients, Tam’s Truffles are an energy boosting snack; perfect for a lunch box; and when you don’t have time for breakfast - pop a couple of these instead of fake ingredient bars, donuts, bagels, or other junkie food. Call them ‘Keto’ or ‘Paleo’… Just call Tam’s Truffles delicious!
20 pitted medjool dates
1 ½ cups raw nuts and seeds - 1/2 cup each – sunflower or pumpkin seeds, pecans, walnuts or sliced almonds
5 Tbsp. coconut oil + extra as needed
1 Tbsp. real vanilla extract
Optional: 1/4 tsp cinnamon or dash of peppermint oil if you are still feeling festive.
¾ cup shredded coconut
Pinch sea or Himalayan salt
½ cup cacao nibs (optional)
Put the dates, nuts/seeds, coconut oil, salt, vanilla, and cinnamon or peppermint oil in a food processor.
Process until finely ground and the mixture will hold shape when pressed between fingers.
If necessary to keep shape, add ½ Tbsp at a time more coconut oil until shape holds.
Put coconut and cacao nibs in separate bowls.
Place parchment on baking sheet.
With a little water in a bowl, wet hands if needed to form a small ball about 1 inch in diameter, pressing together so it holds.
Then roll in coconut and/or cacao nibs if desired. The combination is a happy resemblance of a 'mounds bar'.
Cover the sheet with wrap when done and refrigerate until set, about an hour. Store in an airtight container for a week or two if they last that long!
