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

Ingredients

  • 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

Preparation

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).
