These vegan truffles are a perfect after-dinner dessert. They very simple and can be whipped up in minutes.  Sweet, creamy and chocolatey…all of the things you would want in a truffle.

Oh! I almost forgot to mention, they are packed with antioxidants, phytochemicals and fiber. I knew you were going to wonder about that.

This recipe uses dried plums as the base instead of heavy cream, butter and sugar. It is a great swap while maintaining a lot of flavor.

Vegan Plum Truffles

  • Author: Lauren Grant of Zestful Kitchen



10 dried plums, roughly chopped

2 tablespoons Chocolate PB2*

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

2 teaspoons cocoa powder

2 tablespoons wheat bran

2 tablespoons shredded, sweetened coconut


Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Alternate blending and scraping down the sides until everything is evenly incorporated. You may need a few drops of water to loosen the mixture, make sure to keep it a thick paste.

Remove mixture from processor and form into balls by tablespoon. Wet hands with water to make the rolling process easier.

Roll balls through preferred topping. I used toasted shredded coconut and corn flakes but chopped nuts, powdered sugar, cocoa and sprinkles are great as well.

Refrigerate for an hour to firm up.


*If you don’t have PB2 substitute 1 tablespoon peanut butter and increase the cocoa powder by 1 teaspoon.
