Prep time: 25 minutes
Cook time: n/a
Yield: 15-18 truffles

Ingredients:

½ c. raw hazelnuts
12 Medjool dates, pitted
2 T. cocoa powder, unsweetened
2 T. coconut flour
1 T. coconut oil, melted
1½ T. pure maple syrup
1 t. pure vanilla extract

Chocolate Hazelnut Truffle Recipe

Directions:

Place pitted dates in a small bowl filled with warm water. Set aside to soak for 10-15 minutes.

Line a rimmed baking sheet with wax paper and set aside.

Pour each selected coating, if using, onto a separate shallow, rimmed plate and set aside.

Add hazelnuts to a food processor and process until finely ground.

Remove the softened dates from the bowl and drain off any excess water.

Add dates and cocoa powder to a food processor and blend until smooth, approximately 3-4 minutes. Scrape the sides, as necessary, to ensure the mixture is thoroughly combined.

Tip: Add a few drops of water at a time, if necessary, to achieve a smooth consistency, but don’t add too much.

Add coconut flour, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and salt to the mixture and process until combined.

Remove the dough from the food processor and divide it into 15-18 equal-sized portions.

Roll each section of dough into a ball before rolling in the selected coatings.

Once coated, place on prepared baking tray and place in the refrigerator to chill for several minutes before serving.

Enjoy!
