Raise your hand if you still can’t get back to real life after the holidays. Tell me I’m not the only one who just wants to watch Netflix and eat indulgent high calorie food, while simultaneously losing weight, building muscle and becoming a super efficient businesswoman.

Just me?

Tell me you’re dragging your feet a bit too.

Can we just hit pause on the world clock, and let me catch up and get ahead on everything. Deal?

If only it were that easy. Til then I guess I’ll continue brainstorming vegan hazelnut truffle ideas instead. That seems to be working for everyone around me. I seem to be on a bit of a truffle kick. Starting with my vegan energy balls with chocolate and then my honey avocado truffles with pistachios, they’re just so easy to make.

And so fun.

Just throw a bunch of ingredients into the food processor and poof dessert is ready. This time I crafted a medley of hazelnuts, figs, toasted coconut flakes, walnuts, cacao powder, vanilla extract and maple syrup. All that gets blended and crushed, formed into balls and frozen. Then the frozen balls are dipped in melted dark chocolate.

Super simple right? If you’ve got other nuts on hand you got sub those in. No figs? Use dates. No dates or figs, use maple syrup (just add more nuts to adjust for more liquid).

This recipe makes 18 vegan hazelnut truffles, which should last a while, unless of course you host a 13 person dinner party – in which case they’ll be gone in about 7 minutes. Or less.

You’ll definitely want to grab one of these before they’re all gone.

They’re rich and chocoaltely on the outside and soft and nutty inside. Ever so slightly sweet but not overwhelmingly so.

    Ugh. That first paragraph. It’s like you know my life. Why can’t we eat like it’s Christmas every day??

    These look like a pretty good compromise though. Hazelnuts and chocolate are one of my favorite combos. I bet these are absolutely delicious!

    Figs, hazelnuts, and coconut?!!!! Awesomness I am certain.

    I would definitely not need to host a 13-person dinner party for these gorgeous babies to disappear in about 7 minutes (hello, self-control 😀 )! Absolutely loving all the nutritious, super-yummy ingredients in these! What a great recipe!

      Haha I do think these would make perfect gifts – as long as you can keep your hands on them through the packaging : ))

    I am SO with you! I want to just stay home, in my pjs, baking cookies ALL DAY! We need a post-holiday Holiday! These truffles look incredible by the way. I’ve never actually used figs before but I’m definitely going to have to give them a try! Thanks for sharing 🙂

      haha YES a post-holiday holiday is in order! Glad to see you agree! Hope you enjoy these! You can use dates instead of figs if you prefer those.
