This section of our website is for recipes and tips shared by Ninja users, so they have not been tested by us and we do not have nutritional information for recipes.

Although Christmas may be over, we might still crave indulgent snacks and treats – which is why these rich but secretly healthy truffles are ideal to whizz up and keep in the fridge when your sweet tooth is calling!

Double Chocolate Truffles

Rate this recipe


  • 100g cooked sweet potato or butternut squash
  • 50g soaked dates, drained
  • 100g rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons almond or cashew butter
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1-2 tablespoons almond milk
  • To decorate
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 30g dark chocolate
  • 4 tablespoons cacao nibs
Prep Time


  1. Place all of the ingredients for the truffles in your Ninja Kitchen Auto IQ and whizz up until smooth and quite thick and sticky.

  2. Use your hands or a spoon to scrape out portions of the mixture (it should make about 10) and roll into generous sized balls then roll each one in the cacao nibs to cover – you should have 10-12 balls. Place in the fridge to firm up for 30 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile gently melt the coconut oil and dark chocolate. Coat each ball in it then scatter over the cacao nibs. Return to the fridge for at least another 30 minutes – then enjoy!

My love of healthy food was originally inspired by my commitment to fitness and wellbeing. But that's not to say I don't like a treat from time to time. It was when I started looking for healthy treats that still satisfied my sweet tooth that I realised how little there was to choose from. Despite being labelled 'healthy', many of the recipes I came across relied heavily on processed sugar and fat - which is why I decided to take matters into my own hands.
