Perfect treat!

  • 1 c. pecans, raw, organic
  • 1/2 c. oats, old fashioned rolled, dry, organic
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, ground, organic
  • 1 pinch sea salt, unrefined and pure
  • 3 tbs. date paste, organic
  • 1 tbs. coconut oil, raw, extra-virgin, organic
  • 1 tbs. maple syrup, pure, organic
  • 3 tbs. coconut sugar, organic
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, ground, organic

Using a food processor, process the pecans and oats to a fine meal. Add the cinnamon and salt and pulse to combine. Add the date paste* and pulse until well incorporated. The mixture should stick together when pressed between two fingers. Roll the mixture into equally sized balls (I used a tablespoon measure) and cover with the cinnamon topping.

For the topping: In a small bowl, whisk together the coconut oil and maple syrup, and in another small bowl, combine the coconut sugar and cinnamon. Dip each ball in the coconut oil mixture and then roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Place truffles in the fridge or freezer to firm up before serving.

*Note: To make homemade date paste, simply soak dates in warm water until very soft, drain and then blend with just enough water to make a smooth paste.
