Raw Anzac Truffle Balls

I wanted to make something healthy for Anzac Day and I came across a recipe for these yummy raw treats. These are super easy to make and they taste amazing! Seriously you won't be able to stop eating them, they're coconut-y and caramel-y and delicious.

They're not gluten free, as oats do contain gluten, however they are wheat free which is much healthier than normal Anzac biscuits. They are vegan and dairy free.

You can use honey or maple syrup for a truer "raw" status however I went with the golden syrup for a traditional Anzac flavour.

This recipe will make around 20 truffle balls.

1 cup cashews
2/3 cup sesame seeds
2/3 cup desiccated coconut + extra for rolling
1 1/3 cup rolled oats
Pinch of salt
2/3 cup golden syrup
4 teaspoons vanilla essence
1 tablespoon water

Put the cashews, sesame seeds, coconut, rolled oats and salt into a blender or food processor and blend. The consistency should resemble breadcrumbs (a few large pieces of nuts or oats here and there are ok).

Pour the mixture into a large mixing bowl, and add the golden syrup, vanilla essence and water. Combine well.

Roll into balls, roll in coconut and put in an airtight container in the fridge to set.

Enjoy! x
