Raw Chocolate Sunshine SuperLeaf™ Moringa Truffles by Kate McPherson-­Hope

This delectable creation comes courtesy of Kate McPherson-Hope. Kate is a "seeker, wife and partner, mother to furbabies (2 cats, 1 pup), vegetarian, marketer and Culinary Nutrition Expert. She has a deep love of whole foods cooking, and an endless passion for seeing the beauty in life."

Says Kate, "These little bites of chocolate goodness are super easy to make and are a lovely after-dinner treat. Even better, they're made with super-powered foods like raw cacao, walnuts, cinnamon and my favorite secret ingredient - Moringa leaf powder!"

Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: n/a
Yields: approximately 12 truffles

Ingredients
1 cup raw walnuts
1 cup pitted medjool dates
1/4 cup raw cacao powder
1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon SuperLeaf Moringa powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

  • Place all ingredients in a food processor with an S-blade.
  • Pulse about 5 times, and then process until a ball of dough forms.
  • With slightly wet hands, roll tablespoons of the dough into balls.
  • If desired, use a plate to roll the truffles in raw cacao, cinnamon, shredded coconut, or another topping of your choice.
  • Chill in the refrigerator for about 20-30 minutes before serving.
  • Store truffles in the refrigerator for up to 7 days (if they last that long!).

Bonus tip: Use different toppings to create a variety of truffles - one teaspoon of each topping will serve to coat about four truffles.

One teaspoon is a very modest serving of SuperLeaf™ Moringa leaf powder, but it's a good place to start. As you gauge your own preferences and those of your family, you can bump up the amount you use in recipes. And every bit adds up! 

Find SuperLeaf in our online store or at retailers across Canada.
