Almond Cocoa Truffles

Almond Cocoa Truffles

Another gluten/dairy/sugar/egg free recipe for times when you want to eat something sweet or when you want to supercharge your body with energy and hit the gym.

As most of the times, I never really measure the ingredients but improvise on what’s available in my cupboard (that’s all the fun about it!), however I will try to write down the measurements as accurately as possible.


300 grams of raw almonds (optional: can be soaked for four hours)

a handful of sunflower seeds

3 heaped tablespoons of raw cocoa powder

3-4 tablespoons of coconut oil

2-3 tablespoons of coconut milk or other liquid

1 -2 tablespoons of honey

2-3 tablespoons of Xylitol

1 tablespoon of gluten-free oats

2 tablespoons of dried coconut shreds

1 vanilla bean or 1 tsp of pure vanilla extract


Put almonds in a high-speed blender such as Blendtec and press Pulse few times and then add all other ingredients and press pre-programmed button for Batters or Pulse all ingredients few times until preferred texture achieved. Add 2-3 tablespoons of coconut milk or other liquid at the end, only if needed to help the blender to mix. Roll them in coconut shreds into small balls. Refrigerate and serve.
