ABOUT THE RECIPE:
I made these Coconut-Date Truffles for Michael Feinstein when we filmed his interview for the television show and he loved them! I know you’ll love them too.
Makes 12 TO 14 Truffles
6 large Medjool dates
3 heaping tablespoons raisins
2 tablespoons unsweetened shredded dried coconut
2 tablespoons raw sunflower seeds
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
Line a small baking sheet with unbleached parchment paper.
Put the dates, raisins, coconut and sunflower seeds in a high-performance blending appliance and process to the consistency of soft dough.
Transfer the date mixture to a medium bowl. Spoon out a heaping tablespoon of the date mixture, and roll it into a ball. Put the cocoa powder in a small bowl.
Roll each truffle in the cocoa powder until completely coated and place on the prepared sheet. Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
