- 1 cup raw walnuts or other nuts
- 1 1/2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut, divided
- 1/4 cup brown rice syrup
- 3 tablespoons unrefined coconut oil
- 1/4 cup hemp protein powder
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Pinch of unrefined salt
Place nuts and 1 cup of the coconut in a food processor; process until finely ground. Add brown rice syrup, coconut oil, protein powder, cocoa and vanilla and process until smooth.
Roll into 15 truffles of equal size, then roll each truffle in shredded coconut. The truffles will be very soft; you can refrigerate them for a firmer texture.
