Healthy Pistachio Date Truffles

  • Author: Laura
  • Yield: 12 balls 1x


These Healthy Pistachio Date Truffles are an easy grab-and-go snack or healthy dessert option! They are easy to make with just 5 ingredients.



6 medjool dates, pitted

6oz roasted salted pistachios

1 tbsp honey

3/4 cup dark chocolate chips

1 tsp coconut oil

1 tbsp crushed pistachios

flakey sea salt (optional)


Soak the dates in warm water for 5 minutes*

Add the dates, pistachios and honey to the bowl of your food processor

Process on high for 1-2 minutes

Check on the mixture to make sure that it holds when pressed together, if not, process for 30 more seconds and check again**

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper

Using clean hands, roll into 12 balls and place on baking sheet

Refrigerate for at least 1 hour

Add the chocolate and coconut oil to a small microwave safe bowl

Microwave for 30 second increments, mixing in between (should take 1.5-2 minutes total)

One at a time, use 2 forks to dip each ball into the melted chocolate and move it around to fully coat

Place the balls back onto the baking sheet

Sprinkle with crushed pistachios and flakey sea salt (optional)

Put the balls back into the refrigerator to set for at least 1 hour


*If your dates are fresh you can skip this step, but if your dates are at all dried out you will want to rehydrate them

**Do not over process or the pistachios will break down too much and get oily, the mixture should be granular and easy to form into a ball with your hands
