Recipe 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.

I attempted this recipe and could not get the mix to clump together. It stayed crumbly, even with the dates (not Medjool)! I even added a few extra. What did I do wrong?

Hi Wendy, methinks you didn't process them for long enough in your food processor

I. Live in Australia, melbourne, we dont have much to choose from when it comes to dinning out it is almost impossible to find a raw food reaturant!
I will certainly keep looking at your web site and purchase your products.
Kind regards Gracie

Hi Gracie, such lovely comments from a lovely lady!

I too live in a place (rural Canada) where the nearest raw restaurant is... days away! That's why we have to find friends and places online to get good raw community going :)

Glad to have you here Gracie.

Hi from France!
I've just made your chocolate truffles and they are DELICIOUS! I used cashew and almonds, mixed with half prunes, half dried figs plus some cocoa powder. Finally I sprinkled them with coco powder, the yummiest treat ever!
They actually taste like the french truffes we have at Christmas, but so much healthier!! Thanks for the recipe :)

Do you need to soak the dates or just toss them on in the processor?
Thanks!

I look forward to trying this recipe. I really like the simplicity of the recipes on your site. Do you soak the seeds by any chance? Thank you.

hi Larry, it is not necessary to soak unless I specifically state that they should be soaked. So assume no soaking unless you read otherwise in the recipe
