There's more where this came from!


  1. ¾ cup ground almonds
  2. 1 cup peanut butter (or other nut butter)
  3. 2 tablespoon maple syrup or agave
  4. 12 pitted dates (this is based on deglet noor dates but if using larger medjool dates reduce to 7 dates)
  5. ¼ tsp salt
  6. 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  7. Dark chocolate for coating

These pretty, very tasty truffles are made from surprisingly healthy ingredients!


Makes Approx. 12 Truffles.


  • Soak the dates in boiling water for 5 mins and then drain. In a food processor, mix all the truffle ingredients together to form a thick paste, it should be sticky but not too sticky to handle.
  • Roll into walnut sized balls and chill until they are a little firmer.
  • Melt the chocolate and either dip the firm truffles into the chocolate to half coat them, or just drizzle the chocolate over the top of the truffles on a tray.
  • Best kept refrigerated. Eat within 1 week or freeze.
