Recipe for raw vegan Raffaello Bonbons, with coconut and almonds. Delicious is an understatement! Can you believe they’re ready in only 10 minutes?!
Serves: 15+ coconut balls
  • 5 Tbsps raw coconut oil (melted)
  • 1 cup raw coconut flakes + 4 more Tbsps for coating (real ones, not those yucky colored flakes)

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Mix coconut oil with coconut flakes, sweetener, and vanilla.
  2. Let the composition sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Put the 4 Tbsps of coconut flakes in a small dish.
  4. Make the bonbons. Use 1 tsp of the composition per coconut ball. Add one almond in each one of them and coat them in raw coconut flakes.
  5. Store in fridge for later or eat right away.

  1. Wow, these are even better than the original! I think I’m addicted, I made them 5 times already and they were absolutely fabulous every time. Thank you so much for writing this recipe, Ruxandra! It’s one of my favorites ever!

  2. Dear Ruxandra,

    thank you so much for your great recipies, they all do look so yummy and I will for sure try out several. And also thank you for telling your story. I had to watch the trailer Earthlings and I could not stand long because it is so sad and shocking what happens out there – I am vegetarian since more than 20 years now but my children are not (they are probably too small for this movie, but it inspired me to talk with them about meat again…)
    Thank you so much
    Best wishes and you are so beautiful


    1. Hi, Bea! You’re welcome and thank you! 😀 Yes… couldn’t watch Earthlings either. 10 minutes were enough for me. It’s too much for kids…it’s too much even for adults… but you can show them some nicer documentaries, such as food matters, food inc. I don’t remember those having violent images.

  3. Thank you for this great recipe! I made these for our girls night yesterday and they were a huge success?
    They were super easy to make, only my kitchen was a mess afterwards with coconut flakes everywhere ? Definitely worth it though ?

    1. You’re welcome, Katja! So happy to hear this! 😀 Yes, making quite a mess is a downside, but as you said, it’s totally worth it! 😀

  4. Am gasit la Naturalia doar ulei de cocos, nu pare sa se intareasca sau ceva. E totuna cu untul de cocos? E dubios… As vrea sa incerc reteta..

    1. Hm.. eu stiam ca untul de cocos se transforma in ulei atunci cand e la temp. camerei si reia forma solida pus la frigider.

      Are miros de cocos? Untul de cocos presat la rece trebuie sa aiba o aroma subtila de cocos, ala dezodorizat e procesat si nu stiu cat de sanatos e. Eu zic sa incerci si asa, e posibil sa ai nevoie de mai multi fulgi de cocos.

      Sa imi spui daca au iesit ok 🙂

  5. These were delicious! I did have to add more honey and coconut butter to get it to bind but I’ll be keeping this recipe for sure

    1. Hi Amy! Great to hear that you liked them. I’ll edit the recipe and add an extra instruction to add more butter or honey if the composition isn’t sticky enough. Thanks!

  6. Thank you for this nice recipe!
    I just had a try as we’re having dinner with some friends tonight. I used coconut oil instead of coconut butter and added a good tsp of white almond butter. They turned out really nice and Raffaello like 🙂

    1. Great to hear that! A few days ago I made a Raffaello cake too 😀 It was delicious! I’ll post the recipe soon 🙂

  7. Arata foarte bine , eu le fac dupe reteta lui Doina Oprea ( foarte bune 🙂 ) dar sunt foarte tentata sa fac si varianta ta. Singurul ingredient care imi lipseste aici este untul de cocos , oare as putea folosi ulei de cocos pe care sa-l tin putin la rece pina se mai incheaga ? O sa incerc 🙂
    Multumesc de reteta !

    1. Mersi Cerasela! Ma bucur ca iti place reteta. Toate bombonelele raw sunt delicioase 😀 Uleiul de cocos e unt de cocos. Adica se transforma in unt daca il tii la frigider. Deci da, poti sa il folosesti. E foarte important insa sa fie nerafinat, presat la rece. Are o aroma aparte untul de cocos 100% crud.
