Living In The Raw Vegan Magic Truffles

October 27, 2010 by Keri

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!

Vegan Dessert Recipes

Magic Truffles

  • 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.

    Coriander, eh? Sounds yummy!! I actually do not have a fav book yet. I have a fav website I go to, how about that? Angela’s Oh She Glows has fab vegan desserts!

  2. Dianne says:

    Those look lovely; like a raw Turkish delight! It’s a little different from the average dates + nuts raw balls.

    For desserts? Sweet Gratitude by far! Not the simplest but the most decadent for sure.

    Uhhhh, gimme! These look FANTASTIC!

    I love “The Joy of Vegan Baking.” It was my first vegan desserts cookbook, so it has a special place in my heart! But I can’t forget “Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World,” either…

      Thanks, Jess! The Joy of Vegan Baking was my first vegan desserts cookbook toooo!! It’s the perfect transition book because it doesn’t use a lot of unfamiliar ingredients. But then VCTOTW and VCIYCJ are so magical…. 😀
