Living In The Raw Vegan Magic Truffles
Book Publishing Company’s Luscious Vegan Desserts campaign is coming to an end, but there’s still enough time for me to get in another recipe or two! There’s also still time left for entering to win one of their fabulous vegan cookbooks, so hop on over to their site to enter. In celebration of vegan dessert recipes, we’ve made Vegan Chocolate Cake and Sticky Toffee Pudding from Sweet Utopia, Pumpkin Ice Cream, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream, and Lemon Ice Cream from Lick It, and One Bowl Raw Brownies and Raw Pumpkin Pie from Raw For Dessert. Today, I have a recipe from Living in the Raw Desserts to share. These Magic Truffles (page 44) are simple, sweet, and perfect fuel for packing up the luscious desserts and bringing out the Vegan MoFo!
- 2 cups pecans, soaked 1 hour
- 2 cups dried Turkish apricots
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
- Unsweetened shredded dried coconut
Place the pecans in a food processor fitted with the S blade, and process into a fine meal. Gradually add the apricots, vanilla extract, and coriander, and continue processing until the mixture forms a ball. Form into 3/4-inch balls and roll them in shredded coconut until evenly coated all over. Makes 30 truffles.
