Raw walnut-cocoa truffles with honey and cinnamon (raw vegan)

Today is the 1st of June, which is children's day. Happy birthday to all kids! :)

We decided to present a child-friendly (as in healthy enough) dessert. So here's these raw walnut truffles. There are three things I like most about these. 
1. They're raw vegan and very, very good for you.
2. The recipe source is one of my favorite ex-students, Adriana :).
3. They're strongly flavored and intense and you can't eat more than a few at once which means you'll savor them longer :) (Unless of course you're Bogdan who finished the whole plate after I just tasted two of them, because I was too stuffed from the previous meal). 
You must try them asap. Given how easy they are to make, you have no excuse not to :)

Last year: Stuffed baked avocados (Middle Eastern).


  • 150 g walnuts
  • 2-3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoon raw cocoa
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flakes

Put the nuts in your blender / food processor:

Process until they're finely ground, then add the cocoa, cinnamon (we added a lot because I like it strong, but you should add only half at first, taste and then decide if and how much more you want to add) and honey and mix some more:

Keep adding a little extra honey until the mix starts to come together and you think it will hold shape if you make little spheres out of it. Put the coconut flakes into a plate, form little truffles from the walnut mix and dip them through the coconut flakes to coat them:

Transfer to a serving plate as you finish them. And in 4-5 minutes you should be done:

Voila. Ready to serve. Dig in! :)
