Whisk to combine evenly. Reserve for coating almond truffles. Prepare Truffles Place almond butter, almond meal, honey and vanilla extract in a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Blend lightly until creamy smooth and all ingredients are evenly combined. Add the fine chopped almonds and puffed quinoa and lightly blend just until evenly combined. Scoop the mixture into 1 Tbsp–size portions, then roll in your hands to form truffle balls. Roll each almond truffle in the reserved hibiscus-orange powder, fully and evenly coating each truffle (pressing the powder on to the truffles). Enjoy at room temperature and store in a sealed container.
