Add the hazelnuts and almonds into the food processor and blend. Keep blending until they form a breadcrumb-like texture.
Add the coconut oil, maple syrup, cacao and orange zest into the nut mix and blend. The mixture should begin clumping together. If it isn’t, add another tablespoon of coconut oil.
Roll 1 heaped tablespoon of the mixture into golf ball sized balls using your hands and set aside. Repeat for the rest of the mixture.
To decorate, sprinkle the zest of an orange onto a plate and individually roll the balls onto the mixture to give them a coating. Repeat with ground cacao or cacao nibs. Or try a combination!
Place the truffles in the fridge for an hour or if you are crunched for time just 10 minutes in the freezer. Or if you are really impatient like us you can even eat the truffles right away at room temperature! Enjoy!
