Vegan Snack Alert! Tahini Truffles
Bring on the vegan snacks! These tahini truffles by Lauren Lovatt are bursting with aromatic flavour. We highly recommend this healthy snack recipe for anyone looking for a quick bite.
1/4 cup tahini
1/4 cup cacao powder
1/4 cup VAI cacao nibs (powdered in a blender or food processor)
1/4 cup coconut mylk
2 tbsp top quality honey/maple syrup
1 tbsp melted cacao butter
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp maca & carob (optional for extra oomph)
Pinch of salt (I like a big pinch)
Mix the tahini, honey and coconut mylk together to make a smooth sauce. Fold in the powders and spices along with powdered nibs and hemp seeds. Taste and sweeten or salt as you wish. Fold in the melted cacao butter and leave to set in the fridge for half an hour.
Use a spoon to portion the mix (it should make about 10) and roll into little balls with your hands. Get creative with your coating, they can be dipped in melted chocolate or simply rolled in pollen, coconut or cacao nibs.
These will keep for 4 days in the fridge… if they last that long!
