This delish raw vegan recipe is generously shared by an amazingly inspiring friend, Health Coach and Fitness Trainer, Brenda Chapman, from all the way over in Australia! Here is what she says… “I choose this recipe as my number all-time favourite raw sweet treat as this was my very first raw recipe experience and it was successful on the first time!! I know I know how hard can it be with only really two ingredients, right?! Hmm I’ve said those words before!

You are going to love these little balls of delight and your friends and family will be so impressed at how yummy, simple and healthy they are for you. They resemble a treat my mum used to make when we were children we called them chocolate truffle balls. Create them today and enjoy this healthier alternative instead of a processed chocolate bar or high sugar dessert when you are craving something sweet. You will be pleasantly surprised!


1 cup of raw cashews

½ cup of mandejool dates (pips removed)


  1. Blend the dates and cashew nuts in your bullet or just a regular food processor should be powerful enough, until themix becomes moist. This may take a few minutes as the natural oils from the cashews will start to make the blend moister. It is ready when it starts to form a big roll of dough in the processor or if you can take some of the mixture and roll it in your palms to form a bit sized ball it will hold together very easy.
  2. I then coat my bliss balls in a date sugar, cinnamon & organic cacao powder blend, let that absorb and then coat in coconut. Alternatively you can coat them in just raw cacao powder, cacao nibs, crushed almonds or any other nut you fancy. De’lish! Place in fridge to set for an hour. You can continue to keep them in the fridge if you are eating them within the next week or can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months. I personally store them in the freezer and take 1-2 out when I’m ready to eat them.”

Makes around 12-18 depending on how big you roll the truffles
