Vitality truffles – Choco dream


  • 100g pitted dates (or a mixture of figs & dates)
  • 100g apricots (soak in hot water for ½ hr first)
  • 100g rolled oats
  • 4 t cacao powder (or good quality cocoa powder)
  • 2 T coconut oil (or use water if the budget does not run to coconut oil)
  • ½ cup hazelnuts

Process all ingredients except the hazelnuts until well combined.

Add hazelnuts and pulse or turbo until they are finely chopped. Use damp hands and roll into balls. Keep in an airtight container in the fridge.

If you want to make them extra decadent, melt some good quality chocolate (I like to use 70%) and dip them. Set and keep in fridge. Might not tick the supper healthy box :) but a great nourishing homemade option for a chocolate hit.
