Cinnamon Pecan Truffles



  • 1 cup pecan halves
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • pinch of celtic salt
  • 3 tablespoons date paste
    Note* To make homemade date paste, simply soak dates in warm water until very soft, drain and then blend with just enough water to make a smooth paste.


  • 1 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • Using a food processor, process the pecans and oats to a fine meal. Add the cinnamon and salt and pulse to combine.
  • Finally, add the date paste and pulse until well incorporated. The mixture should stick together when pressed between two fingers.
  • Roll the mixture into equally sized balls (I used a tablespoon measure) and cover with the cinnamon topping.

For the topping:

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the coconut oil and maple syrup, and in another small bowl, combine the coconut sugar and cinnamon.
  • Dip each ball in the coconut oil mixture and then roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Place truffles in the fridge or freezer to firm up before serving
