Servings 12


  • 1 cup cashews, roasted unsalted or raw
  • 1 cup Medjool dates
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

For Coating (optional)

  • Beet powder
  • Coconut flour
  • Cocoa powder


  • Add cashews, dates and cocoa powder in a food processor. Process 1-2 minutes until the dough holds together when pressed.
  • Form 10-12 little balls.
  • In a small bowl, add a bit of either beet powder, cocoa powder or coconut flour. Roll in the truffles until lightly coated. You can use the same coating for each truffle or make an assortment of colors, depending on what you have on hand. The coating is optional.


You only want a light coating on the truffles, if not, they can get messy.
I tried using matcha to make green truffles, but it quickly got absorbed into the truffles and turned dark. I don't recommend using matcha for this reason.
