One of my dearest and most adorable friends Jacqui made me these raw date truffles the other night and I could not stop eating them. They were so delicious I immediately asked her to let me share the recipe with you all and photograph her making them. Lucky for me she agreed. Thanks Jacqui! I hope you all enjoy this recipe. 

This recipe is an adapted version of vegan truffles that my friend makes...he uses walnuts (not my favorite), so I swapped in some cashews, threw in some vanilla extract and voila!! These truffles are so easy it has become a problem for me, and I have eaten them for dinner on more than one occasion. Oops! 

Raw Date Truffles
(Makes about 15 truffles)

1 1/2 C. Medjool Dates (remove the pits)
1/2 C. Raw Cashews
3 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract

Blend everything very well in a food processor. Then begin rolling the mixture into the truffle balls. Once you are finished rolling you can refrigerate the truffles, or eat them all up like me. 

P.S. No need to stick with what I do...if you prefer a different nut over cashews, want it more chocolatey, etc., change it up and happy eating!
