This week, I wish to share with you the healthiest dessert in the world, the black sesame truffle, made using only organic ingredients. On top of that, they are vegan, gluten-free and have zero refined sugar.
I love this chewy dessert very much. When you chew on them, you can feel a sense of tranquility and calmness that the truffle imparts. The sprouted brown rice powder coating the truffle helps calm the nervous system, and you are guaranteed a deep and relaxing sleep if you take them after dinner.
The following recipe makes 10 truffle slices 1 cm thick and 3 cm in diameter.
Amazake is made from fermented sprouted brown rice and koji culture. It is a complex sweetener, which does not spike the insulin unlike the other refined sugar or other simple sugar.
We will be posting more macrobiotic snack and dessert recipes in the future.
