Tis the season for healthier yummies!

Aaah, Navitas Naturals, how I do love you! Nearly all of these ingredients can be found on the Navitas shelf in your organic grocery. They make some of the purest superfoods around. (And you guys *know* how I am about *that*!)

You go, N. N.!

Maca Cashew Crunch Truffles Recipe

  • 1/8 cup + 1/8 cup raw cashews
  • 1/8 cup + 1/8 cup sweet cacao nibs*
  • 1/8 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tbsp maca powder
  • 1/4 cup cacao butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup coconut butter, softened
  • 1/8 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp kosher salt
  • Optional: 2 additional tbsp coconut sugar or coarse sea salt, for coating

Blend in food processor 1/8 cup cashews, 1/8 cup sweet cacao nibs, coconut sugar, maca, cacao butter, coconut butter, maple syrup, vanilla, salt and til well combined. Add second 1/8 cup cashews with 1/8 cup sweet cacao nibs and pulse about 10 seconds leaving mixture a bit chunky.

Refrigerate 10 min or pop into the freezer a few minutes to firm up a bit.

Form mixture into balls with measuring teaspoon or melon baller.

Optional: Roll balls in coconut sugar or coarse sea salt.

Refrigerate on large plate for an hour to set then enjoy!

* Note:  I used Navitas Naturals sweet cacao nibs. Theirs are more sweet (“yah, we caught onto that, Col” 😉) and less bitter than others I’ve tried. If your cacao nibs are not the sweet kind, you can halve the amount and only add it in during the second pulse.
