Raw Chocolate Espresso Truffles

Chocolate and coffee are one of my favorite combos. I've been known to need a cup of coffee (or two) in the morning to get myself motivated. These truffles are chock-full of good-for-you ingredients like almonds, oats and hemp seed, but they taste like a decadent dessert. And because they're vegan, gluten-free (if you use gluten-free oats) and dairy-free, these would be great to serve at your next gathering because they are so allergy friendly (and not to mention delicious). I will have no problem starting my morning with these this week!






1. Place all the ingredients in a food processor and process until combined.



2. Shape the dough into equally-sized balls and place on a plate.


3. Place cocoa powder on a separate plate and roll each truffle in the cocoa powder until coated.

4. Transfer the truffles to a serving platter and serve immediately, or keep cold until ready to serve. (This will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.)
