Ingredients
  • 250gr /1cup Medjool dates, seeded and chopped
  • ¼ cup orange marmalade (i like the chunky texture type)
  • ¼ cup high-quality cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup matcha powder
  • ⅓ cup ground pistachios
  • ¼ chopped pistachio or almond meal (optional)
Instructions
  1. Put chopped dates in a food processor with a splash of water and run until a chunky paste forms.
  2. Add the orange marmalade and cocoa powder and pulse a few more times.
  3. The mixture should be dense, sticky and a bit crumbly. If you like it firmer, add chopped pistachios or almond meal into the mixture. If it's too dry, just add an extra splash of water.
  4. Roll about 1 tbsp of the mixture between your palms to form a bite-sized ball. Repeat with remaining mixture.
  5. Put matcha powder and ground pistachio nuts on a plate and roll each truffle in.
  6. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days.
