2 cups Nuts ( I used part Walnut and part Pecan)
1 cup Madjool Dates 8-10
2 tsp. Vanilla
1 tsp. Apple Pie Spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, all spice mix)
Pinch of Sea Salt
4 drops of Stevia
3 cups Carrot, finely grated
3/4 cup Almond butter
1-2 tbs. Honey or Maple syrup
Almond flour as needed (about 3/4-1 cup)
Cocoa powder or shredded coconut for rolling
My Birthday often fell at Easter growing up and my mom loved to make me a carrot cake shaped like a lamb. So since this year my birthday was a few days before Easter, again, I thought I'd come up with something different that mimicked my mom's idea.
The dessert name "truffle" derives from their traditional shape, which resembles the truffle mushroom. You can roll them in cocoa powder or nuts of choice. Theses carrot ones are mildly sweet with a hint of warm spices. Raw and Vegan. I keep them in the freezer and pull them out a few hours before guests arrive for a quick and delicious snack to serve. Super satisfying.
Makes 40-60 truffles depending on size you roll them into.
