These Easy Raw Vegan Chocolate Orange Truffles make the perfect sweet treat! They’re healthy, grain-free,refined-sugar-free, and seriously delicious. They’re also too easy to make!
When it comes to dessert, I’m all about chocolate. Dark and decadent, it’s my favorite indulgences. And there’s nothing more satisfying to me than a simple bite of dark chocolate.
We do a lot of baking around here, but not today. Today we’re not using our oven at all. And yet we’re still whipping up an absolutely epic treat.
We’re making vegan chocolate orange truffles using just 9 ingredients and without any cream or refined sugar. And they’re still the perfect bite of sweetness to satisfy any and all of your chocolate cravings!
Just like perhaps many of you, I am literally addicted to chocolate…I particularly can not resist the chocolate orange combo!
Ingredients for These Chocolate Orange Truffles:
I wanted to keep things super simple with this recipe. So we’re kind of making a similar base to energy balls, but we’re turning them into truffles instead. And as I said, you just need 9 simple ingredients!
Here’s what you’ll find inside these vegan truffles:
- Medjool dates: these act not only as our sugar but also our “cream”. Medjool dates are super soft and sticky, so when blended up they’re the perfect base for our truffles.
- Almonds: adding a nice texture and a subtle flavor.
- Walnuts: I like using two types of nuts and walnuts are great because they’re a bit more oily than almonds and have a slightly creamier texture. Plus, walnuts and chocolate are a match made in heaven!
- Cacao powder: this is how we’re getting our dark chocolate flavor – so so good! We’re also going to use this at the end to roll our truffles in and give them that extra little “pop”!
- Almond butter/or Tahini: We use this to help the truffles blend up a bit better and also stick together. Plus, it adds more creaminess which makes them even more decadent.
- Maple syrup: again for blending, but also for a touch more sweetness!
- Orange juice: one key to our orange flavor!
- Orange zest: and the second ingredient to this awesome orange flavor we’ve got.
- Coconut flour: this helps the dough stick together, but also gives them a soft and almost cakey texture. I also love using coconut flour in my desserts because it has a touch of natural sweetness to it.And voila! You got the perfect chocolate orange truffles!
