Jacqui's Raw Cacao Truffles


Whenever I get asked by Dan to share a recipe, I have to stop and think about what I have done. I am what you would call an experimental cook and not all experiments work… Luckily this one does. I wanted chocolate and despite having a freezer full of chocolate banana bread, my taste buds were crying out for something else. That something else was sweeties of some description and so these truffles were born.


  • 150g of soaked almonds (you can use any nuts and combine your favourite). Always throw away nut and seed soak water
  • 8 soaked dates
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut oil (melt if yours is hard). You could use melted cacao butter
  • 2 -3 tablespoons raw cacao powder – or more depending on your taste buds
  • 2 tablespoons coconut blossom nectar - adjust to taste


  1. Drain the nuts and dates
  2. Put everything in a blender or food processor and blend until you have a good consistency. The truffle mix should drop from your spoon so that you can make into balls
  3. Put raw cacao and nibs if you have them on a plate and roll your balls in them (the cacao ones)
  4. Put into shallow containers and freeze for 20 minutes
  5. Eat – not all at once
