Prep Time: 45 Mins


Cook Time: N/A


Makes: 16 Truffles


  • 2 Cups of Pitted Dates
  • 1 Cup Ground Almonds
  • 1 Cup Cacao
  • 1/2 Cup Melted Coconut Oil
  • Zest of 1 Whole Orange
  • Splash of Almond Milk

Cooking Instructions

  1. Blend all of the ingredients in a food processor until ground to a fine texture.
  2. Add your wet ingredients and pulse into a dough texture.
  3. Remove contents from bowl (should be sticky but not too wet).
  4. Form into balls of a small - medium shape. (I advise to wear gloves as the mix will crumble with the heat from your hands and stick)
  5. Once all balls are made roll in a little cacao powder and pop in the fridge to set for a minimum of 30 mins.

These will keep in the fridge upto 7 days or freeze for three months in an air tight container.
