Truffles are usually made of rich melted chocolate and full fat cream - this version has neither of those ingredients! Here I've combined nuts, seeds, dried fruit and a few other extras to create a delicious treat that the whole family can eat without any guilt.

Christmas Truffles
  1. Place the macadamia nuts, cocoa powder, chia seeds and crystallised ginger into the bowl of a food processor. Pulse for 1 minute until very finely chopped
  2. Add the coconut oil, tahini, soymilk and dates and blitz for 2 minutes until a sticky dough forms. You'll know it's done if you pinch some between your fingertips and it sticks together. Refrigerate for one hour
  3. Shape teaspoon full of mixture into balls with slightly damp hands and set aside onto a plate
  4. Divide the coconut onto two plates. Sprinkle a few drops of green food colouring onto one and red food colouring on the other plate. Mix with your fingertips until all the coconut is coloured. Roll the balls in the coconut, using one colour per ball. Place balls onto a clean plate and refrigerate until ready to serve
