Preparation Time: about 20 minutes
Servings: 10 bites

In a food processor grind up your almonds and cashews until they make a grainy, flour-like consistency. Add in the dates and blend. Next, add in the rest of the ingredients (except optional toppings) and blend until the dough begins forming a ball.

Roll the mixture into 1/2 inch balls. If you are using toppings, spread them out on a flat plate and roll the balls in the toppings coating them completely and serve.\

These sound wonderful! But what is Maca powder??

I think the Maca powder is where the "energy"comes from. I think it's from a plant. I didn't see if offered on TT. I am going to try the recipe without it.

Maca is a root vegetable also known as "Peruvian ginseng". It's said to increase energy and stamina among other things.

Coconut oil is also a great natural energy booster. There is already some in the coconut cream concentrate but if you want you can always add extra.

I just made these today and they are really quite yummy! I didn't have maca so just completely skipped it. I used a teaspoon and made 20 little balls, rolled in coconut. I am calling them lemon truffle bon bons and serving them at Easter. :) Thanks for sharing this delightful recipe!
