Who likes truffles, truffles made with figs and rolled in superfoods? Well, these are more like raw energy bites but hey, who am I to stereotype lol! These are so easy to make, super delicious and will melt in your mouth!
All you require for this recipe is a food processor, willingness to get your hands dirty and an imagination! Be creative with your superfood toppings; I chose Goji Berry Powder, crushed pistachios, Maqui Berry Powder, shredded coconut and maca powder. To crush the pistachios the easy way is process shelled pistachios in a mini food processor until they form almost a powder. Other toppings can include raw cacao powder, cacao nibs, camu berry powder or pomegranate powder; the options are endless!
Look how beautiful and colorful these are, and pack a nutritional punch! Figs fall in the category of the World’s Healthiest Foods, here are just a few nutritional benefits figs have to offer:
- Lower High Blood Pressure due to high amount of potassium
- Good source of dietary fiber
- Cardiovascular effects
