Espresso Hazelnut Truffles

Recently I’ve been obsessed with the espresso & hazelnut combo. Last week I made a raw vegan cheesecake with a crunchy hazelnut crust & creamy espresso filling & it was A M A Z I N G!

This week I decided to make a fast snack with the same flavors & came up with this concoction. I hope you enjoy these truffles as much as I do!

Espresso Hazelnut Truffles

(Vegan & Paleo)

1 cup dates

1 cup raw hazelnuts

1 tbsp cacao powder

1 tsp Nescafé + 1 tsp hot water (the “espresso”)


1) Mix the Nescafé & the hot water together and set aside.

2) In a high power blender (I used my handy Vitamix) blend the dates, hazelnuts & cacao powder until a sticky dough forms. Add in the “espresso” & blend.

3) Roll the dough into 14 balls & devour! Store left overs in the fridge. Enjoy!
