Hazelnut Truffles

I’m obsessed with energy balls and truffle types of food at the moment. Not only are these Hazelnut Truffles nutritious and so easy to do, they fit so well into my lifestyle as I can make them up at the weekend and then my snacks/breakfasts are done for the week and I don’t have to worry about what I’m going to eat.

Cacoa nibs are used here which are cold pressed to retain more minerals and antioxidants than cocoa.  Hazelnuts have been shown to improve brain health and are packed with antioxidants as well, so these truffles are filling, delicious and nutritious!

I love messing around with different ingredients and seeing what works well.  The orange zest and figs give them a slightly middle eastern flavour, which make these truffles more interesting. The dried figs work well in this recipe as they bind everything together without the need for much maple syrup, which whilst it is good for you in natural form can add a lot of calories to the truffles.

Once made, place in an airtight container and store in the fridge for approx 5 days.

Enjoy!
