Ingredients
Serves: 21
  • 0.78 oz hibiscus flowers, dried, cut and sifted
  • 0.39 oz orange peel, dried, granules
  • 0.58 oz coconut sugar, pure
  • 9.74 oz almond butter, creamy
  • 0.58 oz almond meal/flour
  • 1.46 oz honey
  • 0.29 oz vanilla extract, pure
  • 0.49 oz almonds, natural, fine chop
  • 0.49 oz puffed quinoa
Preparation
Prepare Coating
  1. Place hibiscus and orange peel granules in a spice blender and grind into a fine/small powder. Finished texture should be a mixture of fine ground with small flecks of hibiscus and orange peel intact.
  2. Place ground hibiscus and orange peel in a mixing bowl, then add coconut sugar. Whisk to combine evenly. Reserve for coating almond truffles.
Prepare Truffles
  1. Place almond butter, almond meal, honey and vanilla extract in a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Blend lightly until creamy smooth and all ingredients are evenly combined.
  2. Add the fine chopped almonds and puffed quinoa and lightly blend just until evenly combined.
  3. Scoop the mixture into 1 Tbsp–size portions, then roll in your hands to form truffle balls.
  4. Roll each almond truffle in the reserved hibiscus-orange powder, fully and evenly coating each truffle (pressing the powder on to the truffles).
  5. Enjoy at room temperature and store in a sealed container.
