The Best Raw Chocolate Truffle Recipe That Requires Only 5 Minutes!

Are you ready for a recipe that will quite literally blow your socks off? These raw chocolate truffles are one of the tastiest (and healthiest) chocolate balls out there! They are so simple to make and require less than 5 minutes to prepare!

These chocolate truffles quite literally melt in your mouth, and will leave you feeling your ultimate best, all day long! They are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, too:

Maca root has been used in Peru traditionally as a stress-fighting adaptogen, and to increase libido, regulate hormones, increase stamina and fight fatigue! 

Carob is a great substitute for cacao powder (which contains un-necessary stimulants like theobromine and caffeine) and contains over 8% protein. It is high in minerals, especially calcium, and contains vitamins A, B, B2, B3 and D! Oh, it is also incredibly sweet, due to the natural fruit sugars of the carob pods!

 Spirulina is incredibly vitamin and mineral dense. It is a type of blue-green algae that is considered a complete protein because it contains a wide variety of amino acids - the building blocks of protein. It is also a great source of vitamin B12!

- 1 cup pitted medjool dates
- 1 tsp. vanilla bean powder
- 1 tbsp. spirulina powder
- 1 tbsp. maca powder
- 1/4 cup hemp seeds or coconut flakes (sulphite-free please!)
- 1/4 cup coconut oil (melt lightly over stove until liquid)
- 1/4 cup raw carob powder

Mash everything together, or use a food processor until all ingredients are well-incorporated. Roll the mixture into truffle-sized balls and then coat with whatever you like - I used raw carob powder for some, and some coconut flakes for others! If you like, you can also vary the flavours by adding in some cinnamon, ginger, cayenne pepper, or whatever you please!

Let these balls set in the fridge for about an hour. You can also save them for a later date by sticking them in the freezer!


  1. Yum this sounds delish! Is Carob powder similar to cacao powder?

    1. Hi Lennae!

      Carob is A LOT sweeter than cacao, and tastes about 100000 times better - it is also a non-stimulant which means you can eat these later in the day, no problem :)
