Hazelnut Truffles

Vegan Chef Day

Simple, nutty, chocolatey goodness.

Prep Time: 60 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Serves: 8

  1. 3.5 oz. hazelnuts
  2. 2 tablespoons + 1 tablespoon cacao
  3. 1 tablespoon hemp protein powder (optional)
  4. 3 tablespoons agave
  5. 10 almonds

  • Preheat the oven to 390F
  • Put the hazelnuts in the oven until the skins have darkened. Not all of them will go dark so just roast them until most of them have darkened
  • Cool the nuts
  • Rub them between your hands to remove most of the skin
  • Grind the nuts using the chopper attachment of a hand blender or a good blender
  • Add the cacao, hemp powder and agave and mix well
  • Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes
  • Take a spoonful of the mixture in your hand and press flat
  • Put an almond in the center and fold the chocolate mix around it
  • Roll between your hands to make it round
  • One you have done this with all the mixture put the remaining cacao in a bowl
  • Put each ball in the bowl and swish around so the ball is completely covered in cacao
  • Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
