Healthy Triple Chocolate Truffles Recipe


We know, we know…how the heck is healthy & triple chocolate in the same recipe even possible? Get ready people because we’re about to blow your mind. This healthy & yes, triple chocolate, truffle recipe is one you’re going to want to print, bookmark, do whatever you gotta do to save it because well, it’s one of our favorites. We’ve been trying to be better about how much sugar we eat in 2017 & this dessert is the perfect solution. Majority of the sweetness comes from dates which contains all natural sugars instead of processed sugars aka it’s much better for you. We tossed the dates together with just a hint of unsweetened natural cocoa powder (or cacao powder works too!) as a little goes a long way flavor-wise, some cashews, & a splash of vanilla extract to create these bad boys. They’re packed with flavor & are the perfect sweet solution when those cravings hit. Now for the recipe….

Healthy Triple Chocolate Truffles Recipe
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 12 truffles
  • for truffles:
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 40 dates, pitted
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder (or cacao powder)
  • carob chips
  • for topping:
  • 1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder (or cacao powder)
  • ½ tsp coconut oil
  • optional toppings:
  • carob chips, crushed
  • cacao nibs, crushed
  • sea salt
  1. In food processor, puree cashews until finely ground. Add in dates (we recommend adding in 10 at a time) & puree until finely ground. Add in vanilla & cocoa powder & puree until all ingredients are blended. Transfer mixture to medium sized mixing bowl & stir in the carob chips. Place in fridge for 1 hour.
  2. Remove bowl from fridge & line baking sheet with parchment paper. Using your (clean!) hands scoop up about 2 tbsp of mixture into your hands & firmly press it together. Continue pressing together alternating pinching into a ball with hands. Keep going until a small ball has been formed. You can mold it with your hands but don't roll them into a ball as they'll crumble. Place on baking sheet & continue until all the mixture has been used.
  3. In clean small mixing bowl, melt the coconut oil for 10 second intervals until liquid. Stir in the unsweetened cocoa powder & then drizzle over the balls. Immediately top with sea salt, crushed cacao nibs, etc. & place in fridge for 2 hours or until ready to eat. Serve & enjoy!
