GOJI CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES
I had set out the startings of a recipe this morning, then off to my afternoon job I went. Knowing I wanted goji berries and chocolate and figure a way to get them both.
I said to myself "self, goji berries are amazing and there has to be a recipe with ALOT of gojis in it!".
So I created one.
Here is what I did.
Ground up (food processor) a cup maybe, of gojis in a little water. I let them mesh together, the gojis absorbing the water a bit. Then I added chia seeds until they soaked the liquid up.
When it was all set up, I ran cacao nibs through my champoin juicer with blank screen in. Out came the nicest cacao creamy butter stuff I had ever seen! I "chased" it with almonds, thus making a nutella type mixture!
I put some of this cacao nutty paste into the goji mix. I added coconut shreds, coconut oil, vanilla, some himalyan salt, hemp seeds, and chopped walnuts. I stirred this all together. Adding the choco paste made the mixture firm all up nice!
I then rolled them into balls and rolled in coconut shreds and hempseeds. I put them on a plate in the fridge and in no time, they were lovely yummies ready to eat (and I did...but just one!)
All I can say is WOWEEEEEEE! I just knew there had to be a way to get massive gojis in a tasteful way! I guess I call them GOJI FUDGE TRUFFLES! because that is how they taste!
Just look at the protein here: gojis, chia seed, hempseed, and nuts! Action packed nutrition right there!
Well a girl's gotta spend a Friday night in a BIG WAY! I sure did!
Hmmm anybody up for a midnight chat after my having chocolate, as I think I will be up for a while!
The best pictures I could get but no shot can capture the taste!
Love from my cacao loving heART to yours! Muah! Bette Bliss
