Spicy Mayan Raw Chocolate Energy Truffles
Difficulty 5 minutes Serves
Say hello to Breakfast Criminals' life-changing Spicy Mayan Chocolate Energy Truffles. Imagine the most satisfying, fresh chocolate energy hand crafted at home (by you!) with whole food ingredients that you know and love. With creatively assembled toppings, a fiery cayenne touch, and a dash of sea salt to really bring out the goodness of  the cacao. Enjoy a few with a cup of hot herbal tea and an open journel, and make a sacred ritual out of it. If you're not familiar with TigerNut flour, it is a raw, gluten-free, prebiotic-rich (=belly friendly) flour made from nutritious TigerNuts. It brings a delicious, sweet, earthy flavor to these already dreamy raw chocolate bites. ENJOY!


1 cup cashews
1 cup pitted dates, soaked in hot water for 15-30 minutes and drained
1/2 cup Organic Gemini TigerNut flour  (if not available, use almond meal or oat flour (simply oats pulsed in processor or blender)
1/3 cup raw cacao powder
3 tablespoons shredded coconut OR 3 tablespoons nut butter like peanut butter or almond butter (mix and match!)
3 tablespoons raw cacao nibs
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon Cayenne pepper
3-4 tablespoons filtered water for blending

Topping options: 

Raw cacao nibs
Coconut shreds
Buckhweat cereal (I love Emmy's Organics or Le Pain Quotidien)


1. Add all blending ingredients to a food processor or a high speed blender, and process/pulse until well combined. You may need to pulse intermittently, and stir the mixture in between.
2. Roll the truffles in your choice of topping(s).
3.Move into a container and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Enjoy with love! Keep the truffles in a tightly closed container in refrigerator for up to a week, or in freezer for up to a month.
