Healthy Vegan Truffles are my favorite easy-to-make snacks. I love eating easy healthy sweet snacks after my meals, and it is not always easy to have an excellent healthy option. These no-bake power balls are very healthy and children-friendly.
One of the great things about these oatmeal power balls relies on the fact that you can vary it with the ingredients you have available in your kitchen, getting to 90% of the same result every time, as long as you keep the proportion of cereals, nuts, and dehydrated fruits. So, as always, feel free to play.
It is the first time in a while that we have these healthy power balls without children around. Since our nieces and nephews always ask us to get in the kitchen and make some of these together. If you have children in the house or feel like sharing some time with the little ones you frequent, this is a great option.
How to Make these easy healthy sweet snacks
Simply place all the ingredients in a Food Processor. List of ingredients down in the recipe card. Basically dry fruits, oats, nuts, seeds, and dates.
With your hands make small balls with the mix.
Optionally: lay in a flat plate either cocoa powder, ground coconut, or white sesame seeds and roll the previously made healthy power balls.
Remember, you can always make this with fewer ingredients, for example, 1 ½ cups of the same kind of nuts; I like using a variety of ingredients to ensure I have a nutrient-dense snack or dessert.
Add Dry Dates to your Healthy Power Balls
Did you know that dates are very nutritious and have many health benefits. Here are some:
They are high in Disease-Fighting Antioxidants: preventing the development of certain chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s, and diabetes.
Dates may be helpful for lowering inflammation and preventing plaques from forming in the brain, which is important for preventing Alzheimer’s disease as well.
Dates are a healthy substitute for white sugar in recipes due to their sweet taste, nutrients, fiber and antioxidants.

Healthy Vegan Truffles
Optional (to decorate):
- ⅛ cup sesame seeds
- Place all the ingredients except for the ones used for decoration on a kitchen robot until you have a paste; I don’t grind it too much since I like to keep textures on my bites.
- Make the balls with the mix and then place the cocoa, the coconut flakes, and the sesame seeds on small balls, and pass the truffles through them, separately, to have three different kinds or just one option, like coconut flakes if you prefer to simplify your life!
