Say hi to Hello Joyous!
An organic, plant-based, sustainable beauty brand here to bring more joy to your day.
I am a chocolate lover and if this past month is any indication, I'm chocolate obsessed! I've been baking with a lot of raw cacao these days from my Chocolate Coconut Drops in the Be Merry & Joyous Holiday Guide to Double Chocolate Cookies and at the end of the month, I will have a Double Chocolate Protein Loaf. See? Told ya! My guess is you don't mind one bit.
This recipe for Chocolate Truffles (obviously, there's chocolate in there) deserves three cheers for its simplicity and yumminess! It's rich with chocolate and of course, it's also good for you because it's packed with goodness from pecans, almond flour, coconut and raw cacao.
The secret weapon in the simplicity of creating these truffles was my new KitchenAid Food Processor! As you might know, from my first two cookbooks, a food processor is a kitchen essential in my opinion. It's so versatile to make anything you want from soups to pestos, sauces, dressing, cookies and of course this recipe I'm sharing today - truffles.
A food processor is my go-to when I'm making raw cookies, energy balls or truffles because it chews up the ingredients effortlessly and with my new KitchenAid Food Processor nothing gets stuck on the bottom underneath the blade, even those sticky dates.
I love the fact I can toss the whole thing in the dishwasher and save time!!
These truffles are...
As you can see in my photo, they are nice and soft on the inside, the perfect truffle.
Here's my video on how to make them:
Super duper easy right?
Here's the recipe!
Makes 25-30, 1 inch balls
This is a fun recipe to do with your little one!
Have a wonderful rest of your week!

Thanks Joy! Could I use oat flour or would it make them too dry?Reply
Instead of the almond flour? Yes I think that would work! If they seem dry when you try to roll them you could just add a touch of water.
I just lately had to go gluten free, dairy free and sugar free. Wow! What a learning curve! So I tried these for when I just want a treat. I love them. Thank you. This will be on my Christmas sweet list.Reply
Perfect! I've got many more gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free treats for you! Just check the desserts section of my blog for more inspo: https://www.joyoushealth.com/7-blogcat-recipes?&blogcatid=7&recipecatid=5
Hello! How long do these truffles keep, and where would you store them?Reply
Hi Denise! Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks or the freezer for up to 3 months.
Can I substitute pecans with some other nut like almond?Reply
Sounds yummy ! If I want to substitute raisins for the dates, what measurement of raisins should I use ? ThanksReply
Hi Joy! Even if I have very soft dates do I still have to soak them? Thank you!Reply
You might not need to. If you find the batter isn't sticking you can add a touch of water to it. Enjoy!
These are FANTASTIC! So delicious! I just made them today exactly as the recipe said. You are right, they were so fastReply
Glad to hear you loved them too!
What would be the measurement (weight or volume) for the dates? Just wondering as I don't have medjool dates. ThanksReply
Which food processor is this one?Reply
how many carbs per truffle ? would like to gift these to one of my diabetic students.Reply
Hi Lisa, I'm not sure because I haven't calculated this information. You can put the ingredients into an app like my fitness pal that can probably give you a good estimate. Hope that helps!
Thank you for this receipt. I will be making these night for sure. P.S. love, love the “Best Ever Paleo Bread”. I usually make two loaves, one plain and one I add walnuts and dates. So delicious!Reply
Great idea with the walnuts in the Paleo Bread!! Thanks for your comment :)
