This recipe makes 27 balls
2 cups cacao nibs
1 tablespoon maca powder
2 ounces cocao powder (weight)
1 1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup almond butter
1/3 cup yacon syrup
3 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoon liquid vanilla
Finely grind the cacao nibs in a coffee grinder or dry blender. Mix all ingredients by hand in a bowl until mixture is consistent. Scoop out balls using a small ice cream scoop. Balls can be served immediately or placed in fridge to firm up first.
Variation: You can replace the maca powder with any other powdered superfood. For a delicious, spicy version simply add a half teaspoon cayenne or more to taste.
Storage and life span: These balls will keep for at least two weeks! Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
