How To Make Chocolate Truffle Energy Bites

Put together a vegan dessert with this chocolate truffle. It’s made with Medjool dates, peanuts, and sunflower seeds for a healthy treat.

Preparation: 30 minutes
Cooking:
Total: 30 minutes
Serves:

Ingredients

  • 14Medjool dates,pitted and soaked in warm water for 10 minutes
  • 2tsppure vanilla extract
  • ¼cupunsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½cupdry roasted salted peanuts
  • ½cupsunflower seeds

Optional Coating:

  • cocoa powder
  • shredded coconut
  • crushed nuts
  • mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. First, make sure the dates are soft. Soak them in warm water (and drain them) for 15 minutes before putting them into the food processor or blender. Or chop them up into tiny pieces so they blend easily.

  2. Put all of the ingredients into the blender or food processor, in the order listed, and blend for 4 to 5 minutes or until a thick oily “dough” ball is formed. The dough will be oily from the seeds and nuts.

  3. Scrape down the sides of the blender/food processor a few times to get all of the dry ingredients to the bottom. Once a dough is formed, scoop the dough (about 1 Tablespoon each) and roll it into a smooth ball by hand.

  4. If rolling into cocoa powder, coconut, etc, spread rolling ingredients onto a plate and roll the moist dough ball around to fully cover. 

  5. Store bites in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.
