  • 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


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

Hope you enjoy this easy vegan recipe!
