Print Friendly 

Description:
Raw nuts are a healthy addition to any diet. They’re a great snack on their own, added to recipes, or turned into milk or used in recipes like the raw truffles. This recipes calls for 1 cup of pecans. Pecans are particularly good for you because they contain more antioxidants than any other nut, according to a recent report published in the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry. Antioxidants are substances found in foods that protect against cell damage and, studies have shown, can help fight diseases like heart disease, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and cancer.
Just a handful of pecans contains vitamin E, calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc and fiber, as well as antioxidants. And because pecans are so rich in heart- healthy fat, it doesn't take too many to feel full. In fact, studies have shown that eating nuts has a beneficial effect on the waistline.
This recipe is quick, easy, healthy, and delicious!


Ingredients:
1 – cup pecans (unsoaked)
½ - cup pitted dates
¼- cup water
¼- tsp sea salt
4 – tbls. carob powder, plus 1 additional tablespoon for coating
1 – tbls. Shredded coconut (unsweetened)


Directions:
Process pecans in a food processor. Set aside one tablespoon the processed pecans in a small bowl for coating the truffles.
Add dates to the pecans in the food processor, then process until smooth. (Rose suggests that you don’t try to combine this step with the next one..as the carob powder will absorb all the moisture, resulting in a mixture that is too dry to process)

Add water, sea salt and 4 tablespoons carob powder to the pecan/date mixture in the food processor, then process. Refrigerate the mixture for at least 15 minutes so that it becomes firmer.

Put the remaining tablespoon of carob powder in a small bowl and put the shredded coconut in yet another separate small bowl.

Remove the processed mixture from the fridge and roll into balls. Coat some of the balls in processed pecans, others in the carob powder and the rest in shredded coconut. For the balls that are coated with pecans, you can double roll them in the carob powder if you wish.

These are so easy and delicious.

Wellness Tip
Turmeric, More than a Spice
Turmeric is a spice commonly used in foods such as curry powders, mustards and cheeses. New evidence suggests that its active ingredient, curcumin, might prevent or treat some diseases. The National Institutes of Health is recruiting patients for clinical trials to test curcumin against pancreatic cancer, multiple myeloma (a form of cancer), Alzheimer's and colorectal cancer. Curcumin is not thought to be toxic but high doses or long-term use may cause indigestion. Stay tuned for future updates.
