Very easy chestnut bonbons

It really does take only five minutes to make these easy vegan chestnut bonbons. Keep a jar of cooked chestnuts just in case!
I like this recipe both with carob and cacao. I love cardamom here, but I love cardamom in general. Feel free to skip it if you are not a fan of this spice.
The chestnut bonbons will keep in the refrigerator for about 72 hours.

  • Ingredients
  • 100 g cooked chestnuts
  • 2 tbsp carob powder or pure cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1-2 tbsp agave syrup or maple syrup
  • A pinch of powdered cardamom (optional)



Process all the ingredients using a blender or a food processor. You'll get a sticky "dough".


Form the bonbons by rolling a piece of the dough on a flat surface (round shape) or by compacting the dough in a rectangular dish and then cutting it in equal pieces (square shape). You can also use a silicon bonbon mould if you have one.


Refrigerate before serving for at least one hour.


Keep refrigerated for up to 72 hours.
