Nut free turmeric truffles with a sunflower and date filling.  Flavored with turmeric powder and ground ginger and coated in extra dark chocolate.  A delicious, sweet, earthy dessert that is Paleo, Vegan and allergy free.




  • 100 g pitted Medjool dates (about 8 dates)
  • 1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 1 tsp turmeric root powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  • 3 oz 80-90% dark chocolate


  1. Add all filling ingredients to food processor.  Blend until the mixture becomes sticky and can be formed into balls.
  2. Scoop out 1 heaping teaspoon of dough and roll into a ball.
  3. Place the balls on a small pan or plate and stick in the freezer for at least an hour.
  4. Next, melt the dark chocolate.  Place chocolate in a small saucepan and melt on low heat, stirring frequently. 
  5. Once melted, individually dip the balls into the dark chocolate, coating completely.
  6. Set truffles on flat surface and place in fridge or freezer to set.


You may add a pinch of turmeric powder to the top of each truffle.  To do this, add turmeric powder right after dipping the ball - before the chocolate has a chance to set.
