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.

Hi, love your website and pod cast! Thank you.
I'm very new to raw foods.
I tried make these to balls but it is too powdery to handle. I use organic coco power instead of raw. Could it be a reason why?
Still taste great with powder though.

Hi Ayako, great to hear from you! I am thinking that perhaps your nuts were not oily enough, or perhaps you didn't process them for long enough. Glad they still tasted good though :)

I got a similar recipe from a "raw" friend. It uses raw cashews, raw cacao nibs, both ground, and agave nectar. Rolled in raw cacao powder, put in the fridge for a couple of hours.... to DIE for!
Love your site and can't wait for the app!!

Sounds soo yummy! I love cacao nibs but I don't get to have them very often because they can get expensive and I gobble them up way too fast, hehe. Glad to have you here Mareile :) Hope you will like the app!! xox

these turned out great! Made then for my yoga class and can't wait to share them. Looking forward to playing with other ingredients--maybe some maca and mesquite, nibs and gojis. These will definitely be a regular thing. I ended up not having enough dates (having snacked on a few ahead of time) so I added just a dollop of coconut oil and some coconut crystals. Made them a bit more decadent but still very delicious. Thanks for the great recipes!

Just made these with raw cocao and they are now in the fridge. Yum! I added cashew instead of sesame seeds and a dash of vanilla essence. Thanks for the recipe. I look forward to playing with other flavours

Hi Rawtarian!
I am writing from Peru.
May I use agave syrup instead of dates? What would be the equivalent measure?
Thanks and congrats, love your site!

Hi Gabriela,

No, sorry, you cannot substitute agave nectar for dates in this recipe.

You can try substituting prunes, raisins or dried (but moist) apricots though.

Wow - these are tasty! I used sunflower seeds and cashews. I did not have powder so I used raw cacao nibs. Result - choco chip truffles! I did have to add just a couple drops of water to be able to shape, may not have processed the nuts enough?? Great recipe!

I agree that it may be that you didn't process enough. I am impressed that you used cacao nibs. I am way too over-protective of cacao nibs - I am too cheap to use them for anything lol

I made these tonight and am addicted. I used half a cup combined of shaved almonds and salted cashews, added 7 dates , blended in the food processor and rolled into cocunut... cost me 2.50 to make it!

Those sound yummy, but I am looking for a smooth and creamy version like those naughty truffles covered in powdered cocoa that just melt in your mouth. Do you have a recipe? Love your site by the way

Made these for after dinner. I used pecans, sunflower seeds and raw cacao. Very good! My son, who is super picky, even liked them. If he had known there was nuts and seeds in them he wouldn't have tried it. This is a yummy treat I can feel good about giving to my kids.

Copacker sought

Hi,

I represent a raw vegan chocolate company in NY. We are in a few whole food regions and sell thousands of bars. We do Tempered chocolates, truffles etc, and are looking for an automated copacker to manufacture 6 to 12 of our products. Cert organic is needed and kosher is a plus. Does anyone know of a copacker for truffles? Our products are vegan.

Thank You!
