Raw Chocolate Almond Truffles - Becca Piastrelli

Hey there,

creative gal!

You’ve landed on a post I wrote a few years ago -
back when I was known as The Dabblist and was exploring all sorts of ways I could create beautiful things with my hands. It was a powerful time for me — awakening my creativity after suppressing it for so long — but this space has since evolved to reflect the woman I’m becoming.

These truffles are sneaky. They look sinful, right? Balls of luscious chocolate rolled in almonds. Yum.

So, here's the thing. They're raw. Deliciously raw, protein packed treats that make a great companion during the work day. The natural sweetness of the dates combined with the protein power of almond butter make for a total delight. I brought a bag of these to work last week, and were gone within 5 minutes. Who can say no to chocolate almond butter bite-sized truffles?

Ingredients

15-20 Medjool dates, seeded and halved

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 c. almond butter (of the creamy variety)

1/4 c. unsweetened shredded coconut

1/3 c. cocoa powder

1/2 tsp. sea salt

1 tbsp. cinnamon

1/4 c. toasted almonds, chopped

Start with your dates and vanilla extract in the food processor and process until well combined (like a thick paste). Then add in your almond butter with a few more pulses. Next add in all the rest - coconut, cocoa powder, salt, and cinnamon. Pulse until well combined. Roll the mixture into 1-2 tbsp balls in your palm. Roll each truffle in the almonds, and place in the fridge for at least an hour.
