It is true! Dust off your food processor and blend the following:
-10 Medjool dates, pits removed
-1 cup of raw pecans
-1/4 cup of raw cacao (not a typo )
-vanilla bean powder, or a splash of vanilla extract will do the trick
Roll the mixture into truffles as shown above or form into a brownie shape and let it set in the fridge for as long as you can handle. I often find myself eating the "dough" straight from the food processor! For a more professional presentation you can top with fresh berries and a dusting of cacao powder or shredded coconut.
