Recipe: Christmas truffles

These are the perfect healthy treat when you feel like something sweet after that huge Christmas feast!


1 cup raw cashew nuts
1 cup dried dates
1 cup shredded coconut
2 tablespoons raw cacao or cocoa
Pinch of salt
1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
½ cup dried cranberries

Extra cacao/cocoa for dusting


In a food processor place the cashew nut and whizz up until they are ground into fine crumbs. Add ¼ cup of dates at a time and blitz until the dates are ground into fine crumbs. Continue until all of the dates are ground down. Add the coconut, cacao and salt to the food processor and blend until the mixture is combined. Place the coconut oil in the food processor and blend together. Finally add the dried cranberries to the mixture and mix through without chopping them up too much. Roll the mixture into 16 balls, dust with extra cacao if desired and place in the fridge to set.
