  1. Prep: Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Prepare bowls of pink salt and extra cacao powder for garnishing the truffles.
  2. In a food processor, chop almonds into a flour.
  3. Blend in Medjool dates until incorporated.
  4. Combine all ingredients with date-almond flour in a large bowl. (If coconut oil is solid, melt it first!) Dough will be very stiff so use a strong wooden spoon or spatula.
  5. Roll dough into Tablespoon-sized balls with your hands then roll in bowl of raw cacao powder to coat, dunk one side in the pink salt and place on papered cookie sheet.
