Ingredients

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Chop the dates into chunks (scissors make this an easier job!) and put in the bowl of a food processor. Sprinkle the salt over the dates and process until they're a smooth paste with just a few chunks here and there. (If you're having trouble getting them to puree, add a teaspoon or 2 of water.) 

Line a baking sheet or plate with parchment paper or plastic wrap. Rub a little coconut oil on the palms of your hands (this will keep the dates from sticking to you as you roll them). Use a spoon to measure out a little less than a tablespoon of the dates and roll lightly into a ball. Put on the lined baking sheet or plate and repeat with the rest of the mixture, making about 15 truffles. Freeze until firm, about 20 minutes. 

In a small microwave-safe bowl (this can also be done in a small saucepan on the stovetop), combine the almond butter, coconut oil and vanilla. Microwave (or heat) until soft, about 20 seconds, and stir until smooth. 

Remove the truffles from the freezer and drizzle with or dip in the almond butter mixture, then sprinkle with the coconut. Return to the freezer to solidify the topping, 10 to 20 minutes. Eat and enjoy!
