I am a huge fan of buckwheat. It is a great source of protein, it’s low glycemic, it’s gluten-free and it’s packed with great nutrients. Sprouting buckwheat helps with opening up its nutritious content and with the absorption of all the goodness. In addition, it has a slightly sweet taste that complements these truffles and makes them a super healthy chocolate treat. Use buckwheat and cocoa powder combo to boost your energy when needed.

  1. Use sprouted green buckwheat or just soaked overnight buckwheat. To sprout buckwheat soak it overnight. After that rinse well and cover with a wet cloth for another day or 2. Once you see sprouts coming out, you can use this buckwheat.
  2. Puree buckwheat in a food processor until hummus-like consistency.
  3. Meanwhile, cover dried apricots and dates with boiling water and leave them to soften for 5-10min.
  4. Puree dates and apricots in a food processor. You can leave small pieces for texture.
  5. Crush walnuts in a food processor.
  6. In a bowl, mix buckwheat, dried fruits, walnuts, and cocoa powder. The mixture should be thick enough to make truffles.
  7. Crush pecans in a food processor.
  8. Form a small truffle ball and gently roll in pecans until evenly covered.
  9. Can be enjoyed right away or for better texture leave in the fridge for at least an hour.
