Vegan Chocolate No-Bake Pecan Cranberry Truffles
For the truffles:
- 2 cups organic pecans
- 1 cup organic Medjool dates (pitted)
- 1/4 cup organic raw cacao powder
- 2 tablespoons organic coconut oil
- 1/2 teaspoon organic ground vanilla bean powder
For the add-in:
- 1 cup organic dried cranberries
- Prepare a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, then set aside.
Prepare the truffles:
- Add all ingredients for the truffles to a food processor and process until it becomes a moist, crumbly texture.
- Add the dried cranberries and pulse a couple of times, only long enough to break the cranberries down into small pieces, taking care not to overprocess.
- Take out a spoonful at a time, squeeze the mixture in the palm of your hand, then roll them into a round ball shape between your hands.
- Optional: Roll the truffles in a small bowl with raw cacao powder to dress them up.
- Place the truffles onto the prepared cookie sheet, then place in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes to allow them to firm.
- Store in an air-tight BPA-free container in the refrigerator until ready to serve because they will get soft if left out at room temperature.
