  • 1/2 cup raw cashews — , quick soaked for 1 hour in hot water, then drained and rinsed with cold water
  • 1/3 cup coconut cream — (not coconut milk)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 cup finely shredded coconut + more to roll the candy
  • 16 raw almonds — (can use peeled almonds)


  1. Place cashews in a food processor and process until finely ground. Transfer to a bowl.
  2. Add coconut cream, maple syrup, melted coconut oil and 1 cup shredded coconut. Stir to combine.
  3. Refrigerate for 30 minutes until hard.
  4. Remove from the fridge and scoop out about 1 tablespoon of the mixture for each truffle.
  5. Place an almond in the middle and roll into a ball. Roll into shredded coconut.
  6. Place on a parchment paper lined tray and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  7. Notes:
  8. Keep refrigerated. You can skip soaking the cashews, but by soaking them the texture of the candy is smoother and they are easier digested.
