Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 12-16 truffles
 
Ingredients
  • 2 cups high quality soft dates, pitted
  • 2-3 tablespoons raw cacao or carob powder, additional for coating
  • optional ingredients: 1 tablespoon coconut oil, 2 tablespoons chopped nuts, 1 teaspoon vanilla essence, sea salt to taste
  • --
  • Berry Coconut Truffles
  • 2 cups high quality soft dates, pitted
  • 2-3 tablespoons organic berry powder
  • 2 tablespoons shredded coconut
Instructions
  1. Blend your high quality soft dates and cacao/carob powder in a high speed blender or food processor until you have a very smooth uniform consistency. Use your tamper or spatula to scrape the dough down until it's well combined as you blend.
  2. Scoop out mixture, roll into small balls and place on parchment lined baking sheet. Mixture will be very sticky, wet or lightly coat hands with coconut oil to make it easier to manage.
  3. Roll balls into cacao/carob powder.
  4. Place truffles in the refrigerator for at least one hour to firm up.
Notes
If you are not using high-quality soft dates soak in warm water for atleast an hour beforehand, pour out excess water and dry off dates very well.
Add coconut oil if the dates are too hard while blending.
Store truffles in an air tight container in the refrigerator.
