Raw Coco-Nutty Truffles — In the Raw…Daily Dessert Indulgences

After I made my Raw Sugar Cookie Dough into truffles, I was inspired to make another raw truffle…only this time topped with chocolate!  The main flavors in these truffles are peanut, coconut, and chocolate…they’re kind-of like a cross between a Zagnut (a peanut butter/coconut candy bar) and a Clark Bar (a chocolate-covered peanut butter candy bar).  With a combo like that, you really can’t go wrong.

For a little more texture, next time I make these I’m going to toast the coconut on top and maybe add some coarsely chopped peanuts right before rolling the truffles.  Also, for a bit more decadence, feel free to fully drench them in chocolate instead of just dipping the tops if you prefer.

Raw Coco-Nutty Truffles

(Yield:  8-10 truffles)

4 dates, pitted and coarsely chopped

1/3 c natural peanut butter (such as Smucker’s)

2 TB honey

6 TB coconut flour

1/3 c (2 oz) semisweet or dark chocolate chips

1 TB unsweetened, dried, shredded coconut

In a food processor, process the dates until pureed (they will form a paste).  Add peanut butter and honey and process until combined, then pulse in coconut flour until incorporated.  Transfer dough to a medium bowl (the dough will be crumbly).  Use a 1 tablespoon measure to scoop out the dough, lightly packing dough into the tablespoon measure.  Roll the measured dough into balls, pressing tightly with your hands so the crumbly dough comes together.  Refrigerate truffles for 2 hours.

Melt chocolate in the microwave or a double boiler.  Dip the tops of the truffles in melted chocolate and sprinkle immediately with coconut.  Let the chocolate harden before serving.

    Yes, drench for me please. Totally drenched in chocolate are ears to my music :-D. These look very tempting and yummy, Faith. I say tempting because I’m allergic to peanuts so I know I need to stay away. Another lovely recipe, my friend.

    Hi Faith, Since my recent trip to Costa Rica, I have had coconut (and other fruits of the tropics!) on my mind, and palate! these look delish–and I like how you used dates as a binder—very clever, and healthy!

    Faith,

    Love the truffles. Great flavor profile and awesome execution. Would need about 2 dozen to go.

    Bravo

    I am with the commenters who say they couldn’t stop at one. YUM! They look soooo good! I haven’t heard from you in a while, Faith! I hope you are doing well!

    A raw truffle with these ingredients would certainly convince me to let go my chocolate truffle for a few bites for sure. Well done Faith ;o)

    Ciao for now,
    Claudia
