The only ingredients in these bad boys (I just gave truffles a gender, didn’t I) are dates, hemp seeds and cacao powder. Actually, I used carob powder today but it’s really up to you. Whatever floats your boat, as they say. Or in this case, whatever flavours your truffle. All you have to do is chop everything up and mash it together; it doesn’t get much simpler or delicious. Although having said that, I ate mine with spoonfuls of Artisana coconut butter and WOW heaven was reached. I am talking divine kingdom entry happening in my mouth. Another pairing suggestion? Banana. Mmm… banana… If ya don’t got no coco butter or nanners, don’t sweat it bro. These are amazing all by themselves.
In case you hadn’t noticed (quite likely), I’ve been making some changes around here! I added some new photos of my face to my “About Me” page, changed the blog’s header image, page text font and updated all my pages a little bit (tweaked a few sentences, added newer photos, ya know). I hope you like the adaptions. I’m here to serve and please you, so think of me as your raw food genie. As in: my wish is your command. Hmm… is this getting kinky? Or is that just my wishful thinking… maybe the latter, hopefully the former.
RAW VEGAN CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES IN 5 MINUTES 1 cup medjool dates
1/4 cup hemp seeds
1 heaping tablespoon cacao powder or carob powderPit the dates and cut them up into tiny gooey pieces, mash them together with the cacao or carob powder and hemp seeds until it all sticks together. Roll the mixture into truffles then coat with whatever you like – I kept it simple and used more carob powder. For extra ‘umph’ – what is that word… really – throw in some Himalayan salt, vanilla, ginger, chili or cinnamon!
