Maca Crunch Truffles Recipe
Maca flavor melt in your mouth. One truffle is all you need to escalate your taste buds straight to heaven.
1/2 cup Raw Walnuts, divided
1/2 cup Navitas Organics Cacao Butter, melted
1/2 cup Coconut Butter, softened
1/3 cup Maple Syrup
1/4 cup Navitas Organics Coconut Palm Sugar
2 Tbsp Navitas Organics Gelatinized Maca Powder
1½ tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
1/2 cup Navitas Organics Cacao Sweet Nibs, divided
Place ¼ cup walnuts in a food processor. Add the Cacao Butter, coconut butter, maple syrup, Coconut Palm Sugar, Maca Powder, vanilla and salt. Process until well combined. Add the last ¼ cup of walnuts and 2 tablespoons of Cacao Sweet Nibs, and process briefly to chop, but leaving a little texture.
Spoon into a bowl and refrigerate for about 20 minutes to slightly harden.
Grind the remaining Nibs in a spice grinder to form a coarse powder and place into a small bowl. Use a melon baller to form the truffle mixture into a ball, then carefully roll the ball in the Cacao Powder to dust the outer surface.
Place on a plate and repeat to form remaining truffles. Refrigerate the truffles for one hour longer to set completely, then store at room temperature.
