Ingredients For Carob Coconut Truffles
What Is Carob?
Carob is a flowering evergreen tree that is native to the Meditteranean, its edible ripe pod contains a sweet pulp that is dried, roasted and ground into a powder.
I love to eat these delicious yummies. They are simple to make and perfect for curbing sugar cravings, they are made with dates instead of sugar. Whole natural goodness.
I also used carob instead of chocolate for its many nutritional benefits and to eliminate the stimulating effects of chocolate.
If you have never tried carob it is definitely worth a try, I always say I’ll try at least once if its fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts or seeds.
- 1 cup dates, pitted and soaked 1 hour
- 1 cup walnut, soaked 1 hour
- 2 tablespoon carob powder
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup (optional)
- Any topping you prefer, carob, nuts, coconut flakes, chopped nuts
Process dates and walnut in a food processor until they are crumbly and they start sticking together. Add carob powder and maple syrup, process until mixture clumps together.
Transfer into a bowl and form into balls, then roll into the topping of your choice. Place on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet and refrigerate to hard.
