As if we needed another reason to enjoy pili nuts, I decided to throw them into some chocolate truffles. The end result is ooey-gooey deliciousness with a bit of a pili punch.
Not only are pili nuts miraculous to eat, they’re also amazingly nourishing and beautifying. They contain high levels of heart healthy omegas, all 8 essential amino acids and a treasure chest of bio-available vitamins and minerals, including more magnesium and vitamin E (the skin vitamin) than any other nut. Volcanic pilis are also rich in sulphur, known as the beauty mineral, and essential for building collagen. Pilis are so nutrient dense, they should rightfully be called a supernut (like a superfood or superfruit).
Combine 8 softened dates (after soaking in water for an hour), 1-2 Tbsp pili nuts in a food processor and blend into a chunky paste.
Scoop out paste with a teaspoon and form into a ball in your palm, then roll it around in the mixture of cacao and coconut sugar until coated. Set in the fridge to firm up before serving.
