Overview

These simple little raw chocolate truffles taste just like the real thing. Dates, walnuts, cacao, seeds and salt combine in a food processor. Roll them in cacao or dried coconut for extra pizzazz. Garnish with goji berries for added color.

Directions

  • 1. Process the nuts/seeds in the food processor. Keep processing them until you can't see the nuts anymore, but stop processing before they get too soft looking.
  • 2. Add the dates, seasalt and cocoa powder. Process again until everything is well mixed and clumped together.
  • 3. Roll the balls in your hand and form balls.  Some people like to roll completed truffles in goji berries, cocunut, cocoa powder, etc., but I prefer mine simple.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Raw chocolate truffles were the very first raw food that made me certain that I could become a raw vegan for an extended period of time.

This recipe just requires a food processor and a few ingredients.

These are also delicious if you crumble a truffle or two on top of sliced bananas or other chopped fresh fruit.

Good luck and enjoy these simple, sweet raw treats.

Hey, what can I use instead of dates and any other dried fruit?
Honey?

Hi Laragh,

Dates are usually used for STICKINESS (to get the recipe to stick together) AND sweetness AND as SUBSTANCE/BULK.

So... when substituting something other than dates, you need to consider all of those elements.

In this recipe, you can use raisins instead, but raisins are not quite as sweet so you may need to add a bit of honey

I made these in my mini processor- the Cuisinart wand one because I use it to shred my apples for the breakfast cereal (which by the way, I am addicted to). I did it that way because it was late at night when I got a craving for something snacky. The seeds must not have blended fine enough and I couldn't form a truffle ball, so I stirred in some coconut butter and put the lot in the fridge. The next morning, I used a small melon scoop to form the truffles and my goodness, they are perfect. I will make this again, and again and again! Thank-you for all of your raw food support!

Oh these were really, really good. Your recipe directions didn't say when to throw in the sunflower seeds but after making your raw carrot cake recipe, I knew they needed extra chopping time in the food processor so I took all the ingredients out of the mixing bowl, chopped up the sunflower seeds then combined everything again. Anyway, they are mighty good! Thank you!
