Description : Just in time for the upcoming holiday season. Here’s an awesome low fat delectable treat with that minty holiday flavor.

Prep Time : 15 Minutes

Cook Time : 0 Minutes

Total Time : 15 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 30 dates, pitted
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1-2 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp peppermint extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder for rolling

Instructions

  1. Pit your dates and add them into a food processor. Add in your 3 tbsp of cocoa powder, your water, peppermint and salt.
  2. Blend together in your food processor until mixed well. You may need to stop the blades and push everything down once or twice and turn it back on.
  3. Once the mixture is blended. Dust a surface with 2 tbsp of cocoa powder and start rolling the mixture into about 2 inch balls. Once you have a ball shape, roll them in the cocoa powder and set aside.
  4. Repeat until all the mixture is gone. The recipe should make 15 truffles.
  5. I usually put these in a glass container and freeze them (it slows me down) or else I would eat them all in a day but they would also be fine stored in the fridge. Trust me they wont last long!

Bon Appetit!!

  1. Man oh man! These look delicious and so simple!!!! When my daughter gets home for the holidays, she and I will make these and let you know how they turn out. Thanks for the recipe!!!

  2. I made these with my 3rd grade class this past week and they were a huge hit! I let them try the dates first and then the next day we made the truffles and they had so much fun. Some even wrote poems about the treat. Thanks for sharing and keep up the great work!

  3. I love these! Thank you so much for posting these here, I almost watched all of your blogs again to find the recipe! I cannot wait to get your books! Your blogs have been a game changer for me eating hclf.

  4. These really do taste like peppermint patties but so much healthier. I love them and can’t wait to share with my non vegan husband. He is going to love them as much as I do.

  5. Hi, could you tell me how many people/servings the recipes are for please. I’ve been doing slimming world with no luck, so giving this a try.

  6. As with most date-based truffles , these are extremely easy to make and customize so have fun with the recipe! They would make a lovely last minute gift for your favourite health nut this holiday season. These tasty treats are naturally sweetened, vegan, gluten free, and soy free!

  7. These are so good! I didn’t have fresh dates, but they worked perfectly with dried pitted date bricks which is great b/c they are so much cheaper (I just separated them, soaked them in water for a few minutes, drained them and followed the recipe).

  8. What kind of cocoa powder do you use? I have the typical Hershey’s cocoa powder. Do you use cocoa powder or cocao powder? will it matter. I am guessing it is unsweetened? It looks lighter than mine, so I was wondering.

  9. I made these, and at first bite I wasn’t a huge fan. As I chewed it though it got more and more delicious. I think it’s the cocoa powder on the outside that made it kind of unpleasant at first. Maybe next time I make them I will put a pinch of powdered sugar in the cocoa powder to sweeten it up a little…or roll them in coconut flakes. Hmm.. 🙂
