Coconut Date Truffles

f you need a little afternoon pick me up or a study snack, these are for you.  Sweet and satisfying with a hint of cinnamon, they are just so delicious!  I also make a chocolate version with unsweetened cocoa powder which tempers the sweetness of the dates, but I also really like how here the natural flavours shine through without being overpowered by the cocoa.  That being said, the chocolate ones are incredible.

These coconut date truffles take under 5 minutes to prepare and last a few weeks in the fridge (but I doubt you’ll be able to leave them that long).  

Coconut Date Truffles


  • 1 cup dates
  • 3/4 cup walnuts
  • 3/4 toasted desiccated coconut
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt


  1. Blend everything in a food processor until a soft dough forms. If the mixture is too crumbly (depending on how dry your dates are), add 2-3 Tbsp boiling water and mix again.
  2. Shape into 1 Tbsp balls.
  3. Store in the fridge.
