  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 80 g high-quality vegan chocolate
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp raw cacao
  • 2 tbsp coconut honey, maple syrup or rice malt syrup
  • a pinch of sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla powder or extract

For the filling

  • whole hazelnuts
  • chopped hazelnuts
  • cacao


For the truffles

  1. Add the avocado, cacao, sweetener and salt to a food processor or high-speed blender and blitz until smooth and creamy.

  2. Very gently melt the coconut oil and chocolate in a pan, then add to the processor. Pulse to combine.

  3. Transfer the mix to a container, then pop into the fridge for a couple of hours to firm up so that you can easily roll the truffles.

For the plain truffles

  1. Scoop out bite-sized pieces of the truffle mix and roll into balls in your hands, then roll in some cacao. Store in the fridge or freezer.

For the nutty truffles

  1. Scoop out bite-sized pieces of the truffle mix and roll into balls, flatten with your hand, insert a whole hazelnut into the centre, then fold the truffle around the nut. Roll in your hand to create a round ball.

  2. Add the chopped hazelnuts to a plate, then roll the truffles in the nuts. Store in the fridge.
