These delicious yet healthy no-bake treats are a hit at Mama Wendy's house.

With a few simple steps you can transform dates and nuts into salted caramel truffles.

What you need:

This recipe made about 20 dairy free truffles.

  • Food processor

  • Baking paper

  • 1 cup dates

  • 1 cup cashews  

  • ½ cup LSA (this is ground down Linseed, Sunflower seeds and Almonds and you can buy it from the supermarket with all the other ingredients)

  • 1 tsp Pink Himalayan salt

  • Chocolate (we used non dairy dark chocolate but use what you love)

  • ½ cup desiccated or shredded coconut with some extra for decoration

  • Cocoa powder for decoration

  • Extra nuts for decoration


Simple Steps to Deliciousness: 

You will need an adult to help you or supervise especially when you use kitchen appliances.

1. Clean your kitchen space and arrange all of your ingredients and equipment.

2. Soak the dates in a cup of boiling water for 15 minutes.

3. Blend the Cashews into crumbs with a food processor.


4. Drain the softened dates and add them to the cashew crumbs and blend until soft.

5. Add the Pink Himalayan rock salt to the mixture and tip in the LSA mix and the desiccated coconut. The LSA will make your mix less sticky, watch as your mixture ‘balls' or starts to clump together, this means it's time to stop blending.

6. Take a large teaspoon of the mixture and roll it into a ball with the palms of your hands. Repeat this process until all of the mixture is gone.


7. Roll the balls in desiccated coconut and/or cocoa powder. You can stop at this stage and have these as bliss balls now or continue the steps to make very special truffles.

8. Chop the balls in half and dip the bottoms in melted chocolate and place them on a baking sheet. With the remaining chocolate spoon a blob of chocolate onto the top of the truffles and decorate with nuts, dried cranberries or other fruit and nuts.


9. Refrigerate for at least 10 minutes.

10. When the chocolate is set serve them on a special plate or gift wrap them as a tasty gift for friends and family.
