These delicious vegan brownie truffles are a guestpost recipe from a friend who does not have her own online platform to share gourmet inspiration, but is a fellow gourmand.
What you need (about 20 minutes):
1 teacup of mixed nuts of your choice (1/2 almonds and 1/2 hazelnuts for example)
1 teacup of dried dates, core removed
5 tablespoons of fair trade cocoa powder
4 tablespoons of shredded coconut
Crushed nuts, cocoa powder and coconut for topping.
Chop the nuts in a food processor until you have a rough flour with some bigger bits still left. Add the dates and chop in the food processor until the dates are integrated with the nuts, and start to stick to the blade. Add the cocoa powder and coconut, and continue chopping until well mixed.
There are (at least) two possible ways to finish this:
1. Use your hands to roll bits of the “dough” the mixture into walnut sized balls and then roll until well covered in your preferred topping. Keep in the fridge of you’d keep the for later.
2. Press the mixture into a cake tin, refrigerate and cut into brownie sized bars.
Vegan Is Good!
