Super Seed Truffles

super seed truffles

Last year, I took some food photos for my lovely and talented friend Alex, who runs an amazing bakery based in Chicago. After the shoot, she sent me home with a bunch of goodies, including a small, clear box of these truffles tied up with a pretty pink ribbon. Among all the things she gave me—we’re talking cheesecake, brownies, an assortment of kickass cookies—these were the last thing I got to trying. But once I did, boy did these go FAST! They’re a little creamy, almost like fudge or cookie dough, and they’re packed with nutrient-dense superfoods:

  • Chia seeds: rich in antioxidants, omega-3s and fiber; great source of calcium, phosphorous, magnesium and manganese; contain all nine essential amino acids
  • Flax seeds: high in omega-3s, B vitamins, magnesium and manganese; great source of fiber and antioxidants; contain all nine of the essential amino acids
  • Hemp seeds: contain all nine of the essential amino acids, plus vitamin E and trace minerals; balanced ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fats
  • Cacoa nibs: even better than dark chocolate, they contain magnesium, fiber, iron, antioxidants and naturally mood-boosting compounds
  • Cinnamon: shown to help improve cholesterol, stabilize blood sugar and boost cognitive function and memory
  • Almond butter: high in the monounsaturated fats associated with reduced risk of heart disease; great source of vitamin E, antioxidants, magnesium and potassium

I’ve made these several times now since Alex gave me the recipe. They’re filling, portable, easy to make, and they come together in just 10 minutes. Yum!
