Brownie Truffle Bites

After making the blood orange snack balls I wanted to experiment with cacao and make a truffle type snack. I came up with these brownie bites. They have the texture and taste of a chocolate truffle-everyone enjoyed them!

1 cup of walnuts

1 TBS coconut flour

2 TBS coconut oil

2 TBS raw creamy honey

1 tsp bourbon vanilla

2 TBS  cacao powder (I used nativas naturals brand)

optional but delicious: zest from 1 orange (if you like chocolate and orange together)

Directions:

pulse everything together in a food processor-

Roll into small 1 inch balls-they are oily but firm up once you refrigerate them.

*you can roll the balls in shredded coconut or in some cacao powder.

refrigerate to firm them up,

Enjoy!

    I just made these — AWESOME!!! I didn’t have any walnuts but did have roasted almonds, so I used them. I omitted the extra salt, since they are way salty, and added a few drops of stevia to balance the flavour. It was still a little too salty, so I chopped up a few dates and added them in. The result is BLISS! I love the salty-sweet combo. I was too lazy to roll into balls, so I just pressed into the bottom of a cake tin and chilled, and then sliced into fingers. I love recipes that are so flexible like this!!
