These Raw Lemon Goji Truffles are soft and moist, bursting with sweet coconut, fresh lemon juice and tangy goji berries. They are just divine if you can find the time to pop them in the dehydrator – it makes for more of a macaroon texture. A quick-as-a-flash healthy treat!

 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup fine, white almond meal
  • 2 cups coconut, desiccated
  • ¼ cup 100% pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • Zest of one lemon
  • ¼ cup goji berries
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla paste or extract
  • Pinch of coarse sea salt
To Coat
  • Zest of one lemon
  • ¼ cup coconut, desiccated

Instructions

  1. Blitz all truffle ingredients, excluding the goji berries, in a food processor till well combined.
  2. Mix in the goji berries last.
  3. Roll balls using 1 tablespoon of mixture per ball, then roll the balls over a plate filled with the extra coconut and lemon zest, to coat.
  4. Pop in the fridge to serve as truffles, or, dehydrate at 115˚F for six hours, for a macaroon-like texture.
