DIRECTIONS

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