Ingredients:

Makes 12

6 tbsp organic cacao powder, plus extra for rolling truffles

5 dates, pitted

2 tbsp tahini or your favorite nut butter

1 tbsp coconut milk

2 tsp vanilla extract (non-alcohol) or vanilla paste from 1 vanilla bean pod (this is more expensive but worth it!)

1/4 cup fresh raspberries (not frozen as those contain too much water)

Directions:

  1. Place all ingredients EXCEPT raspberries in a food processor and pulse to then mix well.
  2. Scoop batter in a bowl and GENTLY fold in the fresh raspberries by hand.
  3. Put in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to allow batter to harden a bit so it will be easier to roll into balls.
  4. Using a 1 tbsp measuring spoon, scoop out batter and roll into a ball.  Place ball into a small bowl of cacao powder and coat the truffle, dusting off extra cacao.
  5. Enjoy eating these delectable truffles immediately or store in fridge for up to 1 week and freezer for up to 1 month.
