Vanilla Mint Truffles

(Makes about 18 truffles)


  • 1 cup nuts, ground into a powder (e.g almonds, walnuts, pecans or cashews)
  • 1/2 cup nut or seed butter¬† (unsweetened, unsalted) e.g. tahini, peanut or almond butter
  • 1/4 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1/3 cup sweetener. (we used a combo of agave nectar and honey, but maple syrup is also great)
  • dash of sea salt
  • 1 teapoons Mint extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Put nuts into a blender and grind into a powder.  Then add all other ingredients (nut butter, cacao powder, sweetener, salt, mint and vanilla extract) and continue to blend until all ingredients come together in a thick mass.


Roll into small truffles, and store in the refrigerator to solidify.

Dust with dried coconut or more cacao powder to make them fancy.

  1. Raw cacao power is a super (duper) food full of antioxidants and minerals like magnesium and iron. Move over spinach. I’d much rather have the cacao. Alright, so you need both. I love this recipe because it is all about what I call “naked” ingredients.
