No Bake Healthy Chocolate Truffles

No Bake Healthy Chocolate Truffles

I decided to give my new food processor a run for its money last weekend by creating some delicious, no-bake, healthy truffles that taste like the famous Nakd Bars!

 

These no-bake bites are perfect to fix that ‘sweet craving’ or to fill the gap between meal/snack times and are really similar to the amazing Nakd Bars – to make this recipe into bars simply press the mixture in to a baking pan dish and slice rather than rolling into balls.

 

They are super easy to make and you can even freeze them too!

No Bake Healthy Chocolate Truffles

Ingredients

  • 150g (slightly heaped cup) pitted dates
  • 20g (3 tbsp) unsweetened desiccated coconut
  • 15g (2 tbsp) cocoa*
  • 20g (2 tbsp) mixed seeds/chopped nuts
  • 28g (2 tbsp) rolled oats
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) coconut oil
  • 5ml (1 tsp) vanilla essence
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) water
  • Optional - extra coconut for decoration

Instructions

  1. Add all of the ingredients to a food processor, minus the water and blend for 1-2 minutes
  2. Add the water and blend again until all of the ingredients begin to combine
  3. Using dampish hands/fingers scoop out a heaped tsp of the mixture, roll it into a ball shape (optional - roll in desiccated coconut) and place on to a grease proof paper or in a paper bun case on a flat removable surface e.g. a plate - repeat until all of the mixture is used up .. & try not to eat them as you do this!
  4. Pop your 18 no-bake truffles into the fridge and allow them to 'chill' for 20-30 minutes before serving or keep them in the fridge for later!

Notes

ย *Can swap 1tbsp of the cocoa for choc protein powder

P.S I’ve also made a more simplified version of this recipe (below) by simply combiningย (in a food processor) equal amounts of dates, raisins & walnuts … Then (optional) adding extra almonds & peanut butter.. Blitzing, then rolling into balls in desiccated coconut & chilling as before!

    Hi Nic, these looks delicious! Is there anything I could use instead of coconut oil incase I can’t get my hands on any this weekend? Thanks x

      Hi Lauren! I suppose you could skip it and add some honey/agave nectar to help bind the truffles? That should work! Do let me know ๐Ÿ™‚ x

    Hi Nic, I made these today. They are so scrummy. I used Green & Blacks cocoa which is strongly flavoured but quite bitter so I found I did need to add 1tbs of agave nectar to the mix. I thought this worked well. I think these would be good healthy treats on occasions when chocolate seems to feature such as Easter and Christmas.

    I plan to take some into work tomorrow for my work colleagues to try.
