Okay so the title of this blog post is deceptive because while these might look like chocolate truffles they are in fact a virtuous (and vegan) chocolate truffle impersonator. Rahul was vastly unimpressed by them but I am completely hooked on both the taste and the knowledge that they're low GI and full of other good bits and pieces. I offer a disclaimer - only consider making these treats if you are a tahini loving closet hippy!
10 organic dried apricots
1/4 cup raw organic honey
1/4 cup tahini paste
1/2 cup dutch process organic cocoa
1/4 cup LSA mix
Run the dried apricots through the food processor until they are diced up nice and small, and then add the honey, tahini and cocoa. Blend until the mixture resembles lumpy garden soil! Roll small balls of the chocolate mixture in the palm of your hand, and then dip them in the LSA mix. Refrigerate for half an hour and then eat at your leisure. The 'truffles' will keep in the fridge for 3 -4 days.
