It’s nearly Christmas and time for a few treats. Why not make them a healthy option with these amazing Coffee and Chocolate Truffles.

These are from my brilliant friend Julie’s cookbook, ‘Deliciously Healthy.’ For more delicious healthy recipes you can get her book here.

This recipe makes roughly 40 truffles, takes just 15 minutes to make with a recommended chilling time of 1 hour, if you can wait that long.


1 Cup Cashew Nuts

3 Tbsp Melted Coconut Oil

1/4 Cup Raw Cacao

1/3 Cup Raw Cacao Nibs

1 Tbsp Strong Liquid Coffee (Dissolve 1 Tsp of instant coffee in 1 Tbsp of boiling water)

1 Tsp Vanilla Extract

1/2 Tsp Maca Powder

1 Tbsp Chia Seeds

1/4 Cup of Maple Syrup


Raw Cacao Powder and Desiccated Coconut


Add all the ingredients into a food processor and blend until fairly smooth and it starts to bind together. About 5 minutes.

Dampen your hands and form mixture into balls or press into a silicon mould.

Decorate by rolling the balls in cacao powder or desIccated coconut.

Place in fridge for 1 hour.
