Stress-free chocolate walnut truffles

This recipe was adapted from Carly Wertheim of Carly’s Wellness Kitchen from our class on herbal stress busters at Radicle Herb Shop.

Makes 16 truffles

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 3 Tbs raw cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup ground herbs (we recommend any combination of the following adaptogens/nervines ground in spice/coffee grinder: ashwagandha, holy basil, nettles, lemonbalm, lavender, skullcap, rose, catnip, chamomile…or any other herb you’d like to experiment with!)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 8 oz medjool dates, pitted (~14 dates)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Optional: shredded coconut, hemp seeds or sesame seeds for rolling

Directions:

  1. Place walnuts, cocoa powder, ground herbs, cinnamon, and salt in food processor and process into fine meal.
  2. Add dates and vanilla extract. Process for 1-2 minutes until the mixture easily sticks together when pressed. (If too wet, you can add another tablespoon of cacao powder or ground herbs; if too dry – add another date.)
  3. Roll into tablespoon-sized balls.
  4. Roll each ball into topping of choice – coconut, hemp or sesame seeds.
  5. Freeze or refrigerate until serving.
