Chocolate Cake Truffles

Meet my newest creation. I loved them so much that they had to be the first to make an appearance on OmSheLife.

They are:





moan provoking


gluten Free


and  it is seriously hard to not eat more than one at a time.

I have been eating, making, and experimenting with raw, vegan truffles for about five years and this creation has been my favorite thus far. These chocolate cake truffles, are easy to make even for the busy mamas and so delicious to eat as a quick pick me up (aka chocolate fix!) or to serve at your next party.

I have used nuts and nut butters to create truffles, and although I have had a love affair with sunflower seed butter since I was pregnant with my girl, I have never used it besides to top banana slices as a quick breakfast . These super powered seedlings are a great source of magnesium and copper (good for the bones!), Vitamin E,   essential fatty acids, a good source of protein  and selenium. Selenium helps us ladies to regulate our estrogen and progesterone over time…did I mention that it tastes good?!

As a frequent chocolate indulger, sunflower butter sounds like a good thing to try to mix with chocolate, don’t you think? Oh I dared, and it worked out in my and your favor.

Before I move into the how to, let me just mention and credit my husband with  completing these masterpieces by suggesting a chocolate glaze coating. He is a wiz in the kitchen, and he is usually helping me with my kitchen creations and sometimes he is the solo master recipe creator when he finds inspiration by my latest health facts. Anyways, he thinks that the chocolate coating is  what made them so good, well, I will be patiently waiting to know what you think!

  1. I am not exactly the best cook in the world, (I am actually pretty horrible at cooking) but these truffles look so yummy that I think I will attempt to make them myself! I just will probably invite a friend or two over for some help 🙂

    Thank you for sharing!

    1. Thank you for joining me here, Dominique! These are so easy to make but when you eat them you will feel like a chef!

  2. They definitely look amazing, but I am struggling to beleive maple syrup is sweet enough to make them good. I really need to try it though. I LOVE my chocolate so if I couls make it healthier that would be great.

    1. Hey Crystal! The combination of the dates and the maple syrup makes these chocolate truffles sweet and processed sugar free. This is a win for the sweet tooth and for a healthy chocolate fix. I hope you will give them a try, and please let me know how you like them!

    1. Hi Lisa! My friends and family asked for more after I gifted these to them. Definitely a popular win! Thank you for being here and happy gifting 😉

  3. Oh my gosh! These look delicious! I need to eat gluten-free and my daughter is a vegetarian, so this recipe is perfect! Can’t wait to try them!

    1. Hi Robin, thank you, I love that this compliment is coming from a great photographer and a fellow Bostonian 😉 Yes, these are super healthy but I promise, once you bite into one, you will want to go back for more! Let me know if you do make them. Thank you for joining me here!

  4. These look amazing! Love that they are vegan as well…maybe I can trick my family into eating some! They are still questioning being “vegan”. I find that I am a much better and adventurous cook since I have moved in that direction!

  5. This sounds so yummy! I have been looking for something special to make for my husband’s birthday and our anniversary, I think we just found a winner! Thank you for sharing!!
