Dark Chocolate Walnut Truffles

Mason's Mushrooms contains 8 of the worlds most medicinal mushrooms. Comprised of mycelial networks, medicinal mushrooms are nature’s unifiers. In the body as in nature, the mushrooms in this blend help to unify the body’s organ systems, helping to bring back its innate rhythm and flow. This recipe makes approx 20 {bite size} all natural, quick and easy, subtly sweet, decadent, rich, deliciously indulgent, seriously chocolatey, healthy, wholesome, dark chocolate truffles!

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp of Tremella
  • 1 tsp of Mason's Mushroom 
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds
  • 1/4 cup raw walnuts
  • 1/4 cup raw cashews
  • 3 tbs of hemp seeds
  • 3/4 cup medjool dates*
  • 1 tbs of cacao
  • 1 tbs of coconut butter
  • 1/2 tsp of instant espresso (optional – please note you can’t actually taste the espresso I find it just really helps to enhance and intensify the flavor of the chocolate/cacao)
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla (or 4-6 drops of vanilla cream stevia – I like to use Sweet Leaf Stevia )
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of maca powder – optional
  • 2 scoops of Vital proteins unflavored collagen peptides – or hemp protein - optional for an extra dose of protein and gut healing goodness

Right now when you buy the mushies in the recipe you can get a third to try for free! 

Optional for serving

  • Cacao
  • Finely shredded coconut flakes
  • Hemp seeds

Method

  1. Optional but highly (HIGHLY) recommended – Place your nuts on to a lined baking tray and roast at 175’C/350’F for 5-10 mins until lightly toasted, gloriously golden and deliciously fragrant.
  2. Once toasted, place your nuts into your food processor/blender and pulse until crumbly, you want there to still be a few bigger chunks to give the bites some nice texture.
  3. Add dates and process until the mixture starts to come together into a sticky, loose “dough”.
  4. Add vanilla, hemp seeds, salt, cacao, espresso, maca and collagen/hemp protein (if using) then process again until combined.
  5. Using your hands, roll approx 1 small Tablespoons worth of dough into bite size balls then set aside
 – FYI – I like to make my bites on the smaller side. You would probably need 3 of mine to make up one of those golf ball size bites you buy at cafe’s or in stores.
  6. If you are going to coat your bliss bites in cacao, coconut or extra hemp seeds simply place your cacao, coconut and/or hemp seeds into a small bowl or zip lock bag and gentle press/shake until nicely coated. Store in the fridge until ready to serve.

Enjoy xoxo

If you find your dates are a little dry you could try soaking them in some warm water for 10 mins before you begin, then drain and rinse and make as normal.

I had already been practicing cycle tracking and ritual for some years, but this practice immediately brought me into deeper presence and connection with my body, helped to slow me down and brought in another layer reverence to something I had been taught to fear, ignore or hate.
