Here’s a delicious, simple take on a homemade truffle for Valentine’s Day.  Perfect as a sweet treat with a glass of milk or a cup of tea, these balls are free of added sugars, dairy and gluten and full of my favourite secret ingredient, love.


1.5 c. cashews or almonds (raw or roasted)

1.5 c. whole dates (soaked in water for a few minutes then drained if they’re not moist to start)

1/3 cup unsweetened coconut

1/3 c. cocoa

rind and juice of one lime


To prepare:

In a food processor, blend nuts until a coarse flour results.  Add dates, coconut, cocoa, rind and lime juice and process until well combined.  The mixture will seem a little dry, but will bind together when you roll it, so don’t be concerned!

Roll the mixture into 1” balls, then roll again in a little unsweetened coconut, and refrigerate 1 hr. Store in fridge or freezer.

  1. My husband and I am completely addicted to these!! I use half and half cashews and almonds and add a little powdered sugar to my coconut when I roll it so I truly feel like I’m eating a “treat”!
