Easy to make, and even easier to eat! The perfect after-dinner treat, afternoon tea or coffee accompaniment, or a sweet indulgence anytime. Your biggest problem will be stopping at one, but be reassured that being made with protein-rich tofu, these are practically a health food!

MAKES: 12 truffle balls

PREPARATION TIME: 20 minutes

INGREDIENTS:
1 Tub (250g) of Earth Source Foods Soft Tofu
3 Tablespoons coconut sugar (plus 1 extra)
3 Tablespoons raw sugar (plus 1 extra)
½ Banana
3 Tablespoons coconut flour (or substitute ground almond flour)
2 Tablespoons cocoa nibs or choc chips
1 Teaspoon vanilla essence
4 Sweet biscuits (plain, choc chip, or preferred option)
¼ Cup cocoa powder, raw cacao or dessicated coconut

METHOD:
Remove tofu from tub, place in a bowl and press down on the tofu block with the palm of your hand to squeeze out excess water to drain off. Whizz the drained tofu, 3 tablespoons coconut sugar, 3 tablespoons raw sugar, banana, coconut flour and vanilla essence in bullet or food processor until really smooth. Stir through cocoa nibs or choc chips, crushed sweet biscuits and add the extra tablespoons of coconut sugar and raw sugar.

Take tablespoon size portions of the mix and roll into ball shapes. Place cocoa/cacao powder (or dessicated coconut) into a bowl, place in a few balls in at a time and roll around to coat.

Serve within the next few hours at room temperature, or place in a container to store in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days (if they last that long!).
