These vegan truffles are super decadent and incredibly healthy. They're great for dinner parties or to keep at home for a simple snack when you're on the go. You can store them for up to month in the freezer, though they'll never last that long!
Vegan chocolate truffles
Makes 2 dozen
- 1 cup almonds
- ½ cup raw cacao powder
- 2 tablespoons plus extra raw coconut butter
- ¼ cup agave nectar or 6 pitted dates
- Pinch sea salt
- ¼ teaspoon cardamom
- ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Place almonds in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until coarsely chopped.
Add remaining ingredients and pulse until mixed thoroughly.
Shape mixture into one-inch balls and place in a single layer in a shallow container.
Freeze for 30 minutes or until firm.
Keep refrigerated for up to 2 weeks (they’ll never last that long!) or freeze in an airtight container or freezer bag for up to a month.
Tip: Before freezing, roll truffles in shredded coconut, crushed nuts, goji berries or cacao powder (basically anything yummy).
