Raw Chocolate Almond Truffles

Keziah is cooking up something yummy in the kitchen

1.       1 cup of almond butter (or peanut butter)
2.     1/3 cups of honey
3.     2 teaspoons of carob powder (or unsweetened organic cocoa powder)
4.     ½ cups of raisins
5.     ¾ cups of unsweetened, shredded coconut, divided
6.   ½ cups of semisweet chocolate chips(gluten-free, if it is desired)
7.     ¼ cups of sesame seeds    
8.    ¼ cups of finely chopped walnuts (or any other nut)
Before measuring the almond butter (or peanut butter), stir it well.  Mix the almond butter, honey, and carob powder until well combined.  Stir in the raisins and 2 T* of the coconut.  Stir in the chocolate chips.  Freeze for 30 min. or refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
Place the remaining coconut, sesame seeds, and nuts into 3 separate bowls.  Scoop small globs out of the dough and form them into good bite-sized balls.  Roll in coconut, sesame seeds, and chopped walnuts.  Place  balls on a pan.  Cover and then put in a cool place for at least 30 min.  These freeze well.


  1. They do look nice! We will get to sample them this weekend with all the folks that are coming in!

  2. Oh they look yummy! Did you make them with dairy-free chocolate or with carob? I might need to try these. I don't mind carob but I'm a bit picky about what I use it in! ;o)

  3. Nabila,
    Keziah(12 years old), likes to make some raw on the healthy side snacks for us. These are the last creations she has attempted. I am pretty sure she used gluten free chips. I really like to get the ones that have no sugar, but these are going to be serve to someone that is gluten intolerant. So that is the direction we went this time--just to make sure it was safe. I think using cacao nibs would be fine--

  4. These were so good! I'll have to make them sometime soon. =)
