Ingredients

  • 2 carrots
  • 8-10 dates, soft
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 60 g ground almonds
  • 40 g roasted pepitas, finely ground
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 -1 tsp freshly grated or powdered ginger
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3 tbsp chopped pecans or walnuts optional

For the glaze

  • 100 g dark chocolate {vegan chocolate}
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

decoration

  • pepitas

Instructions

  1. Grate the carrots really finely and squeeze some of the moisture out, using kitchen paper. 

  2. In your food processor, blitz the dates, syrup and vanilla to a paste. Add the rest of the ingredients apart from the chopped pecans and combine everything into a smooth paste. Stir in the chopped nuts 

  3. Shape little truffles using about 1 heaping tsp at a time and put the truffles on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Chill. 

  4. Melt chocolate and coconut oil in a Baine Marie and coat the truffles. I recommend using 2 forks to roll them in the melted chocolate.  Decorate with pepita seeds and let cook until the chocolate dries.

  5. Store in the fridge or in a cool room for up to a week.
