Cacao truffles

By Bioglan Superfoods (


Makes 40 | Prep 20 mins plus chilling | Cook none | Calories 46 (per truffle)

60g (2oz) Bioglan

Superfoods Cacao

110g (4oz) coconut oil, melted

5 tbsp maple syrup

30ml (1fl oz) cold water


40g (1½oz) pistachio nuts

40g (1½oz) freeze-dried


20g (¾oz) desiccated coconut

1 tsp turmeric

1 In a medium bowl, whisk the coconut oil, cacao powder and maple syrup. Whisk in the cold water a teaspoon at a time until it become a smooth, thick ganache. Place the bowl in the fridge to set for at least an hour or, if you’re in a hurry, place in the freezer for 20 minutes.

2 To make the coatings, place the coconut and turmeric into a pestle and mortar and grind together until combined. For the other toppings, bash the freeze-dried strawberries and the pistachio nuts in the pestle and mortar until finely ground.

3 Once the ganache has set, roll about 1 tsp of the mixture into a ball, then dip it into the bowl of toppings – this bit is very messy! Move it around and press the coating onto the truffle until it’s fully covered.

4 Place onto a baking sheet lined with greaseproof paper, then let them set in the fridge for about 30 minutes to firm up before eating.
