4 Ingredient Paleo Pili Nut Chocolate Truffles

Pili Nut Chocolate Truffles

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. 

Why are pili nuts so bomb?! 

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).

Want to make your own? 

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. 

Combine equal parts coconut sugar and cacao powder in a bowl. 

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.
