Orange & Walnut Adzuki Truffles
1 cup cooked azduki beans
1 heaped tbsp hazelnut butter
2 tbsp rice syrup
½ tsp vanilla essence
Zest of 1 orange
Grain based chocolate chips
Blend the adzuki beans, hazelnut butter, rice syrup and vanilla either by hand or using a hand blender. Place the mixture in a bowl and add enough ground walnuts to form dough that sticks and binds together. Stir in the orange zest. Roll into small truffle sized balls.
Add a coating of your choice – Melted Grain Base chocolate chips, desiccated coconut, cocoa powder, sesame seeds or finely chopped dried fruit & nut mixture. Chill in the refrigerator.
