Raw Vegan Chocolate Truffles

Raw Vegan Chocolate Truffles

Looking for a way to impress your Valentine?  Here’s a quick and simple, healthy and decadent treat sure to impress.  No one will know how healthy they are.  Plus they are rich in calcium and magnesium—both critical to healthy heart and nerve function.  Their creamy, rich texture won’t reveal that they are also high in fiber.


1 cup raw unsalted pecans

1 cup fresh, pitted Medjool dates (about 9 large dates)

3 Tbsp raw cacao powder

1 tsp raw vanilla powder or pure vanilla extract

Raw ground almonds to coat (approximately 1/2 cup)


In a food processor, grind pecans.  When finely ground add dates, cacao and vanilla powder and process until well-ground and smooth.  Roll in teaspoon-size balls and coat in ground almonds.

Makes approximately 16 truffles.

I really do love Truffles. As a vegan, I have found some truly creative way of making them while remaining totally no dairy.

Just thought I'd let you know that I made this recipe and everyone thought it tasted delicious. One great thing about it is that it gets better the longer it sits.
Thanks again for posting

I hate to burst everyone's bubble, but REAL chocolate truffles are chocolate ganache rolled in cocoa (or some other coating), and chocolate ganache is bittersweet chocolate gently melted in heavy cream (with or without the addition of vanilla or other extracts), cooled to room temperature, and shaped.

The items made by this recipe may or may not taste delicious, but they are in no way true truffles. The only truly vegan truffle is the fungus usually found in the woods by truffle-pigs....

What great ideas. I like the teacup planter as I have limited space and lots of teacups I do not us…

The label says Just Mayo and has a picture of an egg on it...I can see that being a bit of a confusi…

love all the ideas...will have to try a few of them to bring some green into my house
