Recipe: Raw Licorice Bullet Truffles

Raw Vegan Licorice Bullet Truffle Bites Recipe - raw, paleo, vegan, gluten free, chocolate covered licorice, healthy, sugar free

We are BACK from Hawaii and ready to get back into the swing of things! I was also SO excited to return to these delicious little bites which were waiting for me in the freezer - so I couldn't wait to share them with you!

I was a weird kid. I hated cake, thought frosting was gross, ate tomatoes whole like apples and thought pizza was awful – but do you know what I did like? Licorice.

Licorice is one of those things that people either love or hate – and I am definitely on the love side of town.

I would buy packets of jelly beans that only had the black licorice jelly beans – whilst everyone else was picking out the black ones and throwing them away.

But do you know one thing I never knew about licorice until I was diagnosed with coeliac disease?

Licorice is made with wheat flour.

Along with croissants and fresh bakery sourdough, licorice was also no more in my world – and so I had to get creative. Gluten free licorice never had enough flavour and never satisfied – so I first came up with this Healthy Homemade Raw Licorice Recipe.

But whilst that Raw Licorice Recipe is delicious – it’s a little bit fiddly and annoying, and recently I worked out I could make a licorice inspired treat that was even easier to make.

Enter these Licorice Bullet Bites. Inspired by a chocolate covered licorice bullet, they have chocolate and licorice flavours but are made without any gluten, grains or refined sugar. They’re paleo friendly, easy to make and seriously delicious – well, if you’re a licorice fan at least.

So let me share the recipe with you >>

Raw Licorice Bullet Truffles Recipe
gluten free, vegan, refined sugar free, paleo, dairy free
grain free and clean eating friendly 
makes 6-9 small truffles 

1 cup (170g) pitted dates
1/3 cup (30g) unsweetened cocoa powder 
1 tsp aniseed extract/essence (use more if yours isn't too strong)
Pinch of salt 
  • In a food processor, process your dates until chopped and the dates start to clump together.
  • Add your cocoa powder, aniseed extract and salt, processing until combined.
  • Roll your mixture into truffles and place them in the fridge to firm up (or eat them straight away if you prefer!) 
  • These truffles will keep for a few weeks in the fridge and can also be frozen to last even longer.
Tell me, what's one food you hated as a kid that you love now?
And are you a licorice fan?
