    My Private Note


    Serves: 30



    Units: US | Metric

    • 10 medjool dates, pitted or 1 cup dates, regular
    • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
    • 3/4 cup seeds or 3/4 cup nuts, of your choice pumpkin or 3/4 cup sunflower seeds, almonds
    • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut, plus 1/2 cup for decorating
    • 1/3 cup water


    1. 1
      If using regular dates, you must soak them for at least 6 hours, or overnight then drain well.
    2. 2
      Place the seeds and or nuts in to a food processer. Blend for a minute or so until a dense flour like consistency is achieved.
    3. 3
      Add the remaining ingredients and pulse a couple of times until the ingredients begin to stick together, almost like a dough.
    4. 4
      Use your hands to form small balls. Roll the balls in the remaining desiccated coconut to finish.
    5. 5
      The truffles can be kept at room temperature, but I find they are best kept in the fridge.
    6. 6
      Makes around 30 truffles. They will keep for 3-4 days.

      Yum! These were wonderful. The coco powder mixed with the dates, coconut and almonds made perfect after dinner treats on Thanksgiving for those guests who only wanted a little something sweet afterward. These would be good with extra dark chocolate coating too. Made for the Australia New Zealand Recipe Swap.
