Brazil Nut Truffle Cookies
When a recipe calls for dried fruits, unless I dry the fruit myself, I use a brand that is organic and unsulfured. If you do not have dried apricots, other dried fruits like blueberries, pears, papaya or pineapple, would make great stand-ins.
1 cup brazil nuts, ground to flour ½ cup coconut flour ½ cup organic dried, unsulfured apricots, chopped ¼ cup fresh grated or organic unsweetened shredded coconut 1/3 cup agave 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or 1/2 vanilla bean
Combine the ingredients Place all ingredients in a food process and process until the dough turns into a ball.
Shape the truffle cookies Scoop out a spoonful of dough and shape into round balls.
Coating the cookies Start an assembly line from left and right – line up the truffle cookies, then a bowl or cup with enough agave to coat truffle cookies, a small bowl/cup with coconut flakes or chopped brazil nuts, and then a clean plate.
Work from left to right – take one truffle cookie with your left hand and dip in agave, then drop into the coconut or brazil nuts, and with your right hand roll truffle cookies in coconut/brazil nuts and place on plate.
