Baklava Truffles – Vegan, Processed Sugar Free

If I told you that these tiny morsels of deliciousness taste like Baklava, you may not believe me! Hence, I insist request you to make them and be the judge. There is no pastry sheets or processed sugar involved, instead they have pistachios, manuka honey/maple syrup to make it vegan, tahini, almond butter and cashews as the primary flavor contributors. These truffles are crunchy, earthy, sweet, light and a power house of nutrition. Healthy fats, proteins, magnesium and complex carbs. They can be stored in the refrigerator for up to ten days and make for a perfect pre/post workout snack. We also love to have them in the morning or whenever that afternoon sugar craving hit.
I know y’all will love these truffles as much as we do! They are on repeat here ever since I made them for the first time.

Ingredients
1 Tablespoons Almond Flour
2 Teaspoons Rolled Oats
½ Cup Pistachios, unsalted and unshelled
¼ Cup Raw Cashews, unsalted
2 Tablespoons Almond Butter
2 Tablespoons Tahini
1/4 Teaspoon Cardamom Powder, optional
2 Tablespoons Raw Manuka Honey/Pure Maple Syrup (to make it vegan)
½ Teaspoon Maca Powder
1 Tablespoon Hemp Hearts
1 Teaspoon coconut Oil
Optional Add ins – Chia seeds,Ashwagandha, Goji Berries, Coconut Flakes

Process

  1. Soak the pistachios in water for 10 mins, this helps soften them and remove saltiness if they are salted.
  2. Process rolled oats in a blender.
  3. Now add the remaining ingredients (cashews, drained/soaked pistachios, almond flour, cardamom powder, almond butter, tahini and Manuka honey/maple syrup, Maca powder, hemp hearts and coconut oil) to the processor and process until the mixture comes together. Taste the mixture and adjust sweetness by adding more honey/maple syrup. If the mixture is very sticky, add some more almond flour to adjust the consistency.
  4. Add the optional add-ins if using and let the mixture rest in the refrigerator for 5-7 minutes.
  5. Roll the mixture into equal size balls, store in the refrigerator in an air tight container.

Enjoy! 🙂
