    Ingredients

    9 large Medjool dates, pitted
    1⁄3 cup raisins
    ¼ cup raw unsweetened shredded dried coconut
    1 tablespoon maple syrup
    2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

    Preparation

    1. Line a small baking sheet with unbleached parchment paper.

    2. Put the dates, raisins, coconut and maple syrup in a high-performance blending appliance and process to the consistency of soft dough. Transfer the date mixture to a medium-sized bowl.

    3. Using a cookie scoop, spoon out a heaping tablespoon of the date mixture, and roll it into a ball. Continue in this manner to form 10 to 12 truffle balls.

    4. Put the cocoa powder in a small bowl. Roll the truffles in the cocoa powder until coated and place on the prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate 1 hour. Stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator, truffles will keep up to 3 days.
