Fruit and Nut Truffles


When craving something sweet, these treats come together just in time. There is no guilt here, only goodness.

1 cup raisins (or other sweet dried fruit like dates, figs)
1/2 cup walnuts, 1/4 cup almonds, 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds (or any combination of nuts and seeds)
1/4 cup shredded coconut
2 tablespoons cocoa
2 teaspoons vanilla

Optional Topping Variations:
1-2 Tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut
1-2 tablespoons raw sesame seeds
1-2 Tablespoon cocoa powder or raw cacao powder

In a food processor pulse raisins, walnuts, almonds, pumpkin seeds and coconut until coarsely blended. Add in cocoa powder and vanilla. Then process continuously until mixture forms a “dough” and starts to clump together. Remove and form into 1 inch diameter balls. If desired, on a small plate sprinkle your topping of choice. Roll each ball in the topping. Place on a serving dish or chill until ready to serve. Makes about 20 balls
