  • 200 g. | 2 cups Hazelnuts roasted
  • 8 Plums dried
  • 90 g. | 1 cup Soy protein chocolate flavor
  • 50 g. | ½ cup Cocoa powder


  • Transfer the hazelnuts, plums and soy protein isolate to a food processor and process the ingredients into a smooth mixture.
  • Alternatively, add all ingredients to a medium bowl, cover it, and process using a handheld blender.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper to prevent the balls from sticking to the plate.
  • Scoop out a heaping tablespoon of the chocolate hazelnut mixture and roll it into a firm ball using your hands. Repeat the same process for the other 11 balls.
  • Place the cocoa powder in a medium bowl. Roll the balls in the cocoa, then transfer them to the baking sheet.
  • Put the baking sheet in the fridge for about 45 minutes, until all the balls have firmed up.
  • Take the baking dish out of the fridge and store the hazelnut chocolate balls or serve them right away with the optional toppings and enjoy!
  • Store the chocolate balls in an airtight container in the fridge, and consume within 6 days. Alternatively, store the balls in the freezer, using Ziploc bags, for a maximum of 90 days and thaw the at room temperature.


No blender? Mince the plums and nuts as fine as possible, knead all the ingredients by hand and add a quarter cup of water to make everything stick together.
