Over the last weekend I was feeling very inspired by the flavors of the holiday season, so I created these delicious Raw Pumpkin Spice Truffles! I gave them out as gifts, and we started carrying them at Glow Bio. This recipe will surely be a crowd favorite at your holiday party this year due to the perfectly-balanced flavors of the pumpkin pie spice paired with the sweetness of the coconut flakes and dates. I really enjoy creating truffles as a dessert option because they are just enough to quell a craving or have a treat, without going overboard. 🙂
This time of year can be stressful with shopping, parties, events and the change of routine. A great way to bring everyone together is to share this seasonal holiday treat. You may have felt in the past that you couldn’t enjoy an event as much because there was nothing Beauty Detox-friendly to enjoy. A great way of switching that feeling around is bringing your favorite dish and sharing it with the people around you. I recommend trying this recipe out as a great one to share!
These Raw Pumpkin Spice Truffles will surely be a conversation starter at your next event. You can let everyone know that the delicious creation they are eating is not only vegan but also raw! 🙂 You can enjoy the almonds in their full nutrition, without their amino acids (which build protein) being denatured by cooking. You only need 7 easily-accessible ingredients to get going on this recipe.
Below are a few step-by-step photos to help you get started…
New Recipe: Raw Pumpkin Spice Truffles
- 1/2 cup pitted dates
- 1 1/3 teaspoons organic pumpkin spice
- 2 tablespoons liquid coconut oil
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1/4 cup coconut flakes
- 1/4 teaspoons sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoons stevia
- Blend all ingredients together until smooth- including the coconut flakes.
- Roll up your sleeves, take a small amount of the mixture, and roll small balls between your palms. Add your love!
- Chill in the fridge for a few hours to help the truffles harden. If you are pressed for time, you can stick them in the freezer for an hour or so before serving. Extras are great to store in the fridge for a week, or freeze for even longer!

Sending my love,
Just made these for a christmas party I am having tomorrow and I tried one. They are delicious, the only thing I changed was adding an extra half teaspoon of pumpkin spice. Excellent for all raw dessert lovers! Can’t wait to share with my brothers!
Thanks Katherine, for giving this recipe a try and so happy you liked it. Sending you lots of love during this holiday season! 😉
Is that a 1/2 teaspoon of powdered stevia or liquid stevia? Or does it not matter?
Hi Ky and thanks for checking out my truffles. You can use either form of stevia really, depending on what you have on hand. Try powdered and then your next time try liquid and see what your preference is (don’t forget to let us know what you think). Sending lots of love! 😉
Peace and good health greeetinfs upon you just wondered how come there was no pumpkin involved was hoping to see some use of pumpkin or recipes with this soon
What’s a good substitute for stevia in this recipe? I have organic brown sugar and organic coconut sugar in my house and am wondering if either of those would work. ????
Definitely give either a try. You may find you don’t need any additional sweetness. Let us know how you do! 😉
Just made these delectable little things! I made the mixture without any added sweetness and found that they were just perfect! I used eight really sweet dates.
I’m sure the coconut sugar would have added a nice flavor profile, as well. But really they are just great without it!
Wow! These are so delicious! My advise is don’t just make a batch, make 2 or 3. I use a cookie scoop to form my little truffles and it works just perfect. I also do that with the blonde beauty truffles and the raw cacao truffles. Kimberly, EVERY recipe of yours that I have made is a winner! Thank you so much for sharing your gift. Truly appreciate you!
Thank you for the kind words, Beauty! I am so happy to hear you’re enjoying the recipes and whipping up so many delicious treats 😉
