1 C Raw Cashews(soaked for 2-4 hours then rinsed/drained)
1/2 C Iranian or Medjool Dates(preservative free)
1/2 C Blue Coconut Oil(use their Wild Virgin Cold Pressed to stay raw & gently melt)
3 Tbsp Life Foods Raw Organic Cacao Butter(gently melt)
2 Tbsp Life Foods Raw Maca Powder(optional)
1 Tbsp Life Foods Mesquite Powder(optional)
1 1/2 tsp Organic Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Organic Chilli powder
1/4 tsp Organic Nutmeg
pinch Organic Cayenne Powder
1/3 C Life Foods Cacao Nibs (for rolling)
1/3 C Raw Buckwheat Groats(for rolling)
1. In your Optimum 9400 blender add Cacao Powder, Cashews, Dates & Coconut Sugar(or raw honey) & blend until a mostly smooth paste. If need be add a small amount of water but you will need to add more coconut oil or cacao butter to compensate in next step.
2. Pour the gently melted Coconut Oil & Cacao Butter into the mixture & blend until smooth & then add the rest of the ingredients using a spatula or knife to scrape down the side of your blender or food processor to make sure everything is well blended.
3. Pop mixture into the fridge for at least 40 minutes(20 minutes in the freezer) to firm up then gently roll into even sized balls & roll 1/3 mixture in the cacao nibs/buckwheat groats & pistachio/goji berry(or finely diced cranberries) mixed or dust in extra Cacao Powder.
4. Put back in the fridge to set for 2 hours before serving.
