Sometimes it is difficult not to be tempted and avoid foods that are not good for our body, especially when we have cravings, often due to stress or because we do not eat a very healthy diet. 

When you feel like you need to eat something sweet, I recommend that you make these raw vegan cocoa truffles, they are very healthy, and they are so delicious that it will be hard to believe that they only have three ingredients.

You can use the nuts you want; this time, I used nuts, but they are also wealthy with almonds and hazelnuts, so I recommend using raw and unsalted nuts that are not fried and that do not contain oils or additives.

There are many other ingredients that you can add, such as spices (cinnamon or nutmeg), seeds, superfoods or other dried fruits, it is a very versatile recipe, and it always comes out.

Ideally, you should use Medjool dates because they are much juicier and stickier, but if you can't find them or they seem very expensive, you can use other types of dates and leave them to soak for a few hours (better from the night before).

If you still find it challenging to make the balls, try adding a little maple syrup or the one you like the most.

The best thing about this recipe is that it is ready in less than 5 minutes, and you can eat the balls directly; it is not necessary to let them cool or rest.

You have to put the nuts in a food processor (although you can also use a powerful mixer) and beat until they are crumbled, add the dates and cocoa and beat again until you get the consistency you want. 

You can more or less beat the nuts to your liking; the important thing is that you can make the balls easily.

If you find it challenging to make the truffles because they break, try adding more dates or some syrup or molasses, and if they are too sticky, you can add more nuts, get your hands wet or let the dough rest for a while in the fridge or freezer before to make the balls.

I am in love with raw cocoa, it is delicious, and since it is not as processed as traditional cocoa, it is full of nutrients.

It is more expensive, but you need to add less as it has a more intense flavour. 

However, you can also use unsweetened cocoa powder.

You can store the truffles at room temperature in an airtight container, although if it is boiling, I recommend that you put them in the fridge so that they are not too sticky.
