Day Eight of the Valentine’s Day Challenge is Raw Cranberry Coconut Truffles

This is another healthier dessert for Valentine’s Day and one that you can mix and match to suit your tastes! I didn't use dates because while they taste so good you can get tired of them so I wanted to switch it up and use cranberries and they worked just the same. The cranberries end up making it taste like cherry coconut! Just package these in a cute box and you have a healthy and raw Valentine’s Day present!

Raw Cranberry Coconut Truffles
  • 1 cup Unsweetened Dried Cranberries
  • ½ cup Unsweetened Desiccated Coconut (plus ¼ cup to roll them in after)
  • 2 Tablespoons Raw Agave Nectar
  • 1 Tablespoon Cacao Powder
  • ¼ cup chopped nuts
  • ¼ Teaspoon Pure Coconut Extract

Process everything in the food processor until it comes together to create a sticky dough.

Shape the dough into equal sized balls and roll them in the extra coconut.
