Easy Vegan Chocolate Truffles (guest post!)

Prep Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Servings: 14 ish truffles
Author: Julia


  • 8 ounces pitted medjool dates about 30
  • 5 tablespoons raw cacao powder + more for rolling the truffles
  • 2 tablespoons walnut or coconut oil


  1. Add the dates and cacao powder to a high-powered blender or food processor. Pulse/blend a few times to chop up the dates.
  2. Add in the oil and process/blend until everything is combined and you get a thick, sticky mixture.
  3. Using a spatula, scrape all of the mixture out of the food processor/blender and into a bowl.
  4. Refrigerate for 15 minutes. This allows the mixture to set up a bit so that it’s easier to work with.
  5. Roll the mixture into 14 balls. Roll each ball in additional cacao powder, unsweetened shredded coconut, or nuts.
  6. Resist the temptation to eat the entire batch in one sitting.

    Holy yum!! These look so good Julia. Going to find the recipe now!

    Oh and what about coconut sugar!! I have never hear of this and you know I love coconut! Seriously I am going to find this on amazon after I read your recipe!

      Ohhhhh yeah! Wholesome Sweeteners makes coconut sugar and a slew of other companies. I love the stuff. It can be used to replace cane sugar in a 1:1 ratio and it has a slightly caramel-y flavor to it…it also tastes kind of salty to me so when I bake with it, I don’t add salt to the recipe. Let me know if you try it!!

    Has my momma seen these? Bc they totally look like a Julie Swope thang. (She’s totally trying to adopt you, btw. I’m one false step from being totally replaced.)

      She can adopt me and then we can be sisters! I’d definitely fit in with my frizzy/curly somewhat redish hair!! 🙂 I want to try the recipe with coffee grinds and make them little mocha treats. 🙂
