Vegan Date and Walnut Truffles with Coconut


A lovely happiness-inducing vegan snack with just 4 natural ingredients.
By Liz Barclay

This simple vegan truffle recipe consists of 4 of nature’s simplest, tasty ingredients: dates, walnuts, almonds, and coconut. Dates are a rich source of fiber, iron, potassium, and other nutrients- and they also serve as a versatile ingredient in cooking & baking. Feel free to substitute the walnuts in this recipe for other nuts such as macadamia nuts, pistachios, etc.

The final result? A tasty, energy-rich snack that provides you with nature’s best vitamin: happiness.


1 Cup of Dates, pitted and chopped

1/2 Cup of Walnuts

1/2 Cup of Almonds

1/2 Cup of Organic Shredded Unsweetened Coconut


Take 1 Cup of pitted dates, and chop into small pieces. Set aside in a bowl and mash well (or use a food processor).

After step 1, ground up 1/2 cup walnuts and 1/2 cup almonds in a food processor. Pulse well until the nuts are ground up into small pieces.
