Sweet Dreams Cacao Cherry Truffles
Tart cherries contain melatonin and help to induce sleep
1 cup raw cashews
2/3 cup dried tart cherries and dried goji berries
3 tbsp raw cacao powder
1.5 tbsp coconut oil (make sure the coconut oil is melted until liquid)
1 teaspoon raw cacao nibs
1. Add cashews to food processor and pulse until finely ground
2. Add dried cherries and cocoa powder and mix until well combined
3. Add cacao nibs and coconut oil and mix until combined. The mixture should ‘stick’ together. You may add more coconut oil if mixture is too dry and/or to round out the tart cherry flavour.
4. Scoop out about 1 tablespoon of the mixture and roll into little 1inch balls with your hands. You can roll into coconut flakes, cocoa powder, crushed cashew or coconut sugar.
For an added chill-out benefit, enjoy with a chamomile and/or passionflower tea
