Cardamom & Cacao Truffles
25 mins (prep 25)

I was looking for a low carb high fiber treat and came up with this one. Cardamom is originally from the east and used to flavour food and for medicinal purposes. It lends a very interesting and distinctive taste to foods. I like it and thought it would be a good addition to these truffles. I ground all my ingredients in my magic bullet and then processed the dough in my Kitchen Aid food processor. You can use either the dark or golden flax seeds in this recipe. This recipe can be doubled, but be aware they are rich, so you might want to make a single batch just to try them first. If you can't find organic then conventional will work just as well, though might not taste as good. You can also use ground carob or ground unsweetened chocolate in place of the cacao nibs if you don't have them.
