These simple vegan chocolate truffles are so delicious you won’t believe they are made with healthy ingredients. Great for snacks, desserts and even a chocolate breakfast! Make up a batch of these gems. You’re going to love them, enjoy!
I have been making these yummy truffles for very many years. The whole family loves them and I’m happy because I know they’re eating a healthy treat that tastes so decadent. I even serve these at dinner parties and for every large gatherings. Years ago when I worked in a healthy club, I would bring them in for the other employees. One day one of the members saw them in the staff room and asked if she could try one. She loved them so much she asked if I could make her two batches for a dinner party she was having the upcoming weekend. I made them for her one time then gave her the recipe. I bumped in to her years later and she said she still makes these little chocolate truffles for just about every occasion. That put a smile on my face. No one even knows they are vegan or made with healthy ingredients. LOL! Try this easy recipe soon. Bet everyone in your home will love them as much as we do.
Vegan Chocolate Truffles
Yields: 16 Truffles
Nutrition: calories 62, fat 1.9, carbs. 11, fiber 1.7, protein 1.3
- 1 cup pitted dates
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (I use natural not Dutch processed)
- 2 tbsp honey, agave, or coconut nectar
- A few drops all natural Stevia sweetener to taste or leave out
- Approx 1/8 to 1/4 cup cold water
- 1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp slivered almonds
- 1 to 2 tbsp almond meal, coconut flour or plain bread crumbs
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 dash salt
- 1/4 cup mini vegan chocolate chips
- 1 tbsp powdered sugar for dusting
- Using a mini chopper or food processor, start with the dates and almond flour (I chopped the dates before placing them in the chopper).
- Add the almonds, cocoa powder, honey, salt and vanilla.
- Add the water a little at a time until you get a consistency that you would be able to roll up into little balls.
- Place mixture in a medium bowl, add in mini chocolate chips, gently fold in. Roll your little truffle balls. You should have about 16 nice size truffles.
- Place truffles on parchment or wax paper in the fridge for at least a half hour, and then dust with powdered sugar.
- Optional: If you want an even more decadent treat you can melt some chocolate chips and drizzle over and put back in fridge for another hour.
