I can proudly say this is my favorite recipe that I’ve made to date. Raw vegan cookie dough truffles made with only 4 healthy ingredients then dipped in a 3-ingredient raw chocolate. These truffles are not only really simple, but also much healthier than any I’ve ever tried. So go ahead and spoil yourself with these decadent treats.
First, you have the raw vegan cookie dough made with these 4 natural ingredients. It’s amazingly chewy, naturally sweet, and so addictive. I’ve always been an advocate of eating raw cookie dough (and usually eat more of the dough than the actual cookies). My mom was definitely NOT a fan of me doing so. But now I’ve come up with a raw vegan version that has no eggs, dairy, or refined sugars so I’d say full-speed ahead with the cookie dough eating.
Then there’s the silky smooth raw chocolate made from coconut oil, maple syrup, and raw cacao powder. If you’ve never tried making your own chocolate before, don’t worry. It’s actually way easier than you think! Plus you even get to lick the bowl after.
This recipe is completely raw, vegan, gluten-free, and refined sugar-free. My goal was to create a chocolatey dessert without any processed or unnecessary ingredients. I’d say mission accomplished. Truffles do not get much healthier (or tasty!) than this.
I brainstormed the idea for these cookie dough truffles after being bombarded with Easter dessert recipes online. I couldn’t quite find something that was easy to make, bite-sized, and made without refined sugar, dairy, or gluten. Then it hit me, why not make raw cookie dough because who doesn’t like cookie dough?
I came up with a raw vegan carrot cake with cashew cream frosting last week (what’s Easter without a carrot cake right?) but also wanted to make a dessert for all you chocolate lovers out there. So this one is for my fellow chocoholics.
I definitely gravitate more towards sweet than savory foods so keep your eye out for more nourishing sweet treats coming soon! There’s nothing more satisfying than a raw vegan dessert and they’re also easier to make than baked goods in my opinion. So stay tuned as I experiment more in the kitchen making delicious desserts for y’all.
