These 3-Ingredient Healthy Brownie Truffles are made with 3 simple, wholesome ingredients, and guess what? Not one of them is sugar. Just raw walnuts, dates, cocoa powder (or cacao). These bites are a great source of Omega-3 fats – thanks to the walnuts!
These truffles are gluten-free, plant-based, raw, and can be made nut-free too.
Why omega-3 fats are good for you:
Omega-3s are a wonderful fatty acid that’s essential for your brain, your heart, and the immune system. Most people will fail to get enough omega-3s in their diet as we tend to not eat fish ( because vegan diet ) You can read more about 0mega-3s here.
But did you know walnuts also contain copper, vitamin e, and other anti-inflammatory properties? I’ve never been more of a fan of walnuts until now!
The only sweetener in these little bites of goodness is dates. If you weren’t already aware, dates are an amazing source of fiber and vitamins, and their natural sweetness (and sticky texture!) is perfect for adding to no-bake snacks and treats.
I simply love simple easy to make bites like these 3-Ingredient Healthy Brownie Truffles. They are easy to pack and carry around, for a quick healthy snack whenever needed.

3-Ingredient Healthy Brownie Truffles
- 1 cup/120g 4 ounces raw walnut halves/ or use sunflower seeds for a nut-free version
- 1 cup/170g packed pitted dates
- 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 tablespoons shaved chocolate, or chopped walnuts to roll the bites ( optional )
- Place walnuts, cocoa powder, and dates into a food processor. Process for about 1 minute or until walnuts and dates come together well. Walnuts should be slightly chunky.
- The dough texture should be thick and clumpy and possibly come together into a ball. If it isn't, then add 1 or 2 tablespoons of warm water.
- Use a cookie dough scoop to grab 1 tablespoon of mixture and then roll into a ball. Place onto a small baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Repeat until all the mixture is gone. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes to allow balls to chill and harden a bit, but you can eat them straight away, I just find them better once chilled.
- After the bites are done chilling, roll them onto the deisred mix and transfer to an airtight container or reusable bag and store in the fridge for 1 week or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
