Barre3 Hazelnut Truffles

January 21, 2015


For those of you that know me, my obsession for Barre3 is still going strong.  Today I am almost 3/4 of the way done with our Winter Challenge that embraces healthy eating, fitness and connection.  Each week we are sent a new Barre3 approved recipe to try, and I obviously was pretty thrilled when I saw “truffle” in the title.  Made with whole foods and no added sugar, these sweet treats do just the trick in curbing any sugar cravings.  I love keeping a batch in the freezer to prevent any possible slip ups 🙂


Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles

Recipe via Barre3

  • 1 cup pitted Medjool dates
  • 1 cup roasted hazelnuts
  • 1/4 cup raw cacao powder
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 1 tablespoons coconut butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons finely shredded unsweetened coconut
  1. Soak dates in a bowl of hot water until soft.  This will take about 20 minutes… drain.
  2. Combine dates, hazelnuts, cacao powder, almond butter, coconut butter, almond extract, salt and coconut in a food processor for 2 minutes until finely processed.
  3. You want the mixture to hold together when pressed – feel free to add a little water if mixture is too dry.
  4. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of cacao powder on a plate.
  5. Using a tablespoon, scoop a heaping spoonful of the mixture and roll into a ball.
  6. Roll each ball into cacao powder until fully coated.
  7. Store finished truffles in an airtight storage container and refrigerate for an hour before enjoying.



  • Lightly wetting your hands helps when creating balls of the dough (it gets pretty sticky).
  • Store remaining truffles in the freezer or fridge.
