  • Combine your pecans, almonds, and cocoa powder in your food processor and pulse until you have a crumble consistency, not powder
  • Add your dates and pulse until the a mixture is formed, it should resemble a paste (you made need to keep scraping the sides down to help your trusty food processor)
  • If your mixture is too thick, you can add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water to help you form the truffles (don't add too much or you will get mush)
  • Transfer your mixture to a mixing bowl and add your cinnamon and vanilla bean seeds and mix well by hand
  • Form your mixture into 10 equal size truffles
  • Roll your truffles into the shredded coconut, cocoa powder, both or any other garnish you want. You can used crushed macadamia nuts, sesame seeds, etc
  • Store in your refrigerator covered for up to 2 weeks


This is just a base for many different variations. You can substitute different nuts or seasonings to your taste. If you do, post it in the comments and I will add the variations to the recipe.
