Natural ingredients make these date chocolate truffles healthier. Enjoy these vegan truffles year-round, especially during the holidays!


– 8 ounces pitted medjool dates about 15 dates* – 5 Tbsp (37.5 g) raw cacao powder + more for rolling the truffle – 2 Tbsp (30 ml) coconut oil melted


Mix pitted medjool dates and cocoa powder in a food processor. Blend or pulse until dates and cocoa powder are chunky. This may take two minutes.

Step 1

Blend in the melted coconut oil until a thick, sticky mixture forms. Small pieces of dates in the mixture are fine!

Step 2

Use a rubber spatula to remove the date truffle mixture from the food processor and into a bowl.

Step 3

Put in fridge for 15 minutes. This sets the mixture, making it easier to work with. Form 14–18 truffle balls from the mixture. 

Step 4

If desired, roll each ball in cocoa powder, unsweetened shredded coconut, chopped walnuts, or pecans.
