These low carb, skin loving truffles not only taste incredible, but they are packed with the most incredibly beneficial ingredients, including tissue healing collagen, phytonutrient rich cacao and your choice of mood-enhancing adaptogens.
I’ve tried this recipe with both Maca and Ashwagandha and the depth of the cacao flavour and the richness of the almond butter pair incredibly well with the earthiness of the adaptogens.
Adaptogenic Cacao Collagen Truffles
4 tablespoons crunchy almond butter
4 tablespoons almond milk
4 tablespoons hemp seeds
4 tablespoons collagen powder (I love Bare Bones Broth Collagen Peptides)
3 tablespoons raw cacao powder
2 tablespoons cacao nibs
1 teaspoon ashwagandha or maca powder (or adaptogens of your choice)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
Place all ingredients in a blender and pulse until combined. Chill the mixture in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, then roll 1 tablespoon of the mixture into balls. Will keep for 1 week in the fridge or 1 month in the freezer in an airtight container.
