- 2 cups desiccated coconut
- 1 cup almond meal
- 8 medjool dates
- 1 tbsp tahini
- ½ tbsp vanilla powder
- 1-2 tbsp cranberry powder
- salt to taste
place the almonds in the food processor and blend until you get almond meal. add all the rest of the ingredients, except cranberry powder and process till you get sticky mixture. if the dates you are using are not fresh, soak them in the warm water before mixing with the remaining ingredients.
remove half of the mixture and set aside. add cranberry powder in the food processor with the remaining mixture. you might want to start with 1 tbsp and add more later if you like. process till the cranberry powder is well combined.
take a dollop of both mixtures in your hands and roll them into bite sized truffles. you can sprinkle some more desiccated coconut on top if you like. enjoy!
