Raw Chocolate Fruit Truffles

These are soooo good! I'm not sure where I found this recipe so my apologies for plagiarizing..

Mix and set aside:
1/4c coconut
1/2t cinnamon

Blend in food processor:
1c raw nuts soaked
1/2c pitted dates soaked
1/2c dried apricots (or sub for more dates)
1/2c raisins (i used dried cranberries)
2T cocoa powder
1/8t natural almond essence
1T fresh orange juice

Roll into balls and roll in the coconut mixture. Store in air tight container in fridge.

Yummy Cinnamon/Walnut/Berry Quinoa

This is more of a hot breakfast idea, but I'm eating mine cold ;)

Bring to boil:
1c water
1c milk (soy)
1c Quinoa
Cover and simmer for 15min. Remove from heat and let stand 5min.

Add toasted nuts of your choice, 2c berries (blackberries in my case), cinnamon and drizzle with agave.

Guess I could have spent more time on presentation there lol, still good though ;)
