1/2 cup avocado
2 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 pinch sea salt
1 tbsp rolled oats (not instant)
1/3 cup PRANA organic goji berries
1 tbsp PRANA organic coconut palm sugar
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Melt 1 1/2 cup of chocolate over medium heat in a double boiler.
Using a food processor, purée the avocado and add the maple syrup and vanilla.
Add the purée to the chocolate and mix using a spatula. Add the sea salt. Let cool then place in the freezer for 20 minutes.
In a food processor mix the goji berries, sugar, and rolled oats for a few seconds to obtain a grainy texture. Make sure not to over mix in order to keep some goji berry chunks. Set aside.
Melt the remaining 1/2 cup of chocolate in a double boiler. Set aside.
Using a teaspoon, form 1" balls of the chocolate mixture.
Insert a fork to dip the balls in the melted chocolate.
Sprinkle with the goji berry mixture.
Place on the prepared baking sheet and let them set in the fridge for about 1 hour.
These truffles make a great gift or party favour. Store in the fridge.
