Raw Vegan Coconut Dusted Chocolate Truffles
I discovered that I have the worlds best neighbors here in my new home, so I made them a gift.

- 1/2 cup raw cashew nuts
- 1/2 cup raw almonds
- 1/4 cup unsweetened raw cacao nibs
- 1/2 vanilla bean, scooped
- 5 medjool dates, pits removed
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 3 tbsp raw honey (or maple syrup)
- 4 tbsp water
- unsweetened coconut flakes, for dusting
In a VitaMix or high powered blender, blend all ingredient, besides coconut flakes, together until formed into a paste like texture. *Be sure to start your blender on low, and slowly bring the speed up - these ingredients can easily burn out your blender temporarily. Once ingredients form desired consistency, wet hands, and roll into balls forming truffles. Roll the chocolate truffles into coconut, nuts, or desired toppings. Transfer truffles onto a plate or tupperware and refrigerate for 1 hour before enjoying.
