These sumptuous homemade truffles are oh-so-simple to make


Black beans in water

1 can(s), large, drained

Dates, dried

75 g

Coconut Oil

1 tablespoon(s)

Smooth almond butter

1 serving(s)


1 tablespoon(s), level

Vanilla Extract

1 teaspoon(s), level

Cocoa Powder

5 tablespoon(s), level, 3 tbsp, plus 2 tbsp extra for rolling


  1. Place the first 6 ingredients in a food processor with 3 tbsp cocoa powder. Whizz until smooth – scrape the mixture from the edges a couple of times to ensure everything is well combined.
  2. Transfer the mixture to a small bowl and chill for at least 1 hour, until firm. Pinch off small portions and roll into balls – the mixture should make around 20 truffles. Sift the remaining cocoa powder onto a plate and roll each truffle in it until evenly coated.
  3. Arrange the truffles on a tray and chill for 30 minutes, or until firm, before eating. They’ll keep in the fridge in a sealed container for up to 5 days.
