Almond Joy Date Truffles

  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 10 dates 1x


Easy to make and SO decadent, these Almond Joy Truffles are a real treat that’s totally plant-based! Full of healthy ingredients but it tastes like a candy! Vegan and gluten-free.


  • 10 Mejool dates, as fresh and sticky as possible
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut
  • 2 tsp maple syrup (optional)
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 10 almonds, roasted


  1. Carefully tear dates almost in half lengthwise, being sure not to rip entirely in two pieces. Remove the pit and discard.

  2. In a small bowl, stir coconut flakes with 1 tsp coconut oil and optional maple syrup. It will stick together slightly, which is what you want.

  3. Add chocolate to a mug or small dish with remaining 1 tsp coconut oil. Heat in 30 second increments, stirring in between until smooth. Take care not to burn your chocolate.

  4. Stuff each date with a little bit of coconut mixture and press closed as much as possible. Drizzle chocolate over each and place one almond into top. These will keep for a few days in the fridge, if they last that long!
