Oat-Almond-Cocoa Truffles (Raw-Vegan)


Again another one to please my son :-) These raw truffles are kid friendly and healthy as well. I have been making nut based truffles for quite a while (we called them as energy balls initially), but my son was not a big fan of them unless it had chocolate in them. So here is one with cocoa, the main ingredients being oats and almonds. 

  • Organic rolled oats - 1 cup
  • Organic raw almonds - 1/2 cup
  • Organic chia seeds - 2 Tbs.
  • Medjool dates - 6
  • Organic raw cocoa powder - 4 Tbs.
  • Raw honey - 2 Tbs.
  • Virgin coconut oil - 2 Tbs.
  • Himalayan salt - a pinch

  • Ground oats and almonds in a dry blender to a coarse powder. If you would like the almonds to be chunky, grind them separately till desired fineness.
  • Grind chia seeds in a coffee/spice grinder. 
  • Process dates and cocoa powder together in blender or food processor (or just with the back of a wooden spoon) till dates are mashed well and cocoa is mixed well.
  • Add everything to a bowl, and mix well so that everything binds well together.
  • Make balls/truffles using your hand. This makes about 24 truffles.
