    I’be made some a lot like this but without prunes – they are so good and a perfect pre-morning workout snack. Just a little natural sugar shot before bouncing out the door.

    i love lemon poppyseed muffins, so i’m sure i would love the healthier version too :). hope you are enjoying the new week! 🙂

    Poppyseeds are so woefully underused! I’m happy you’ve given them some glory here 😀

  4. Lisa

    I love the lemon / poppyseed combo!

    I’m a bit frightened by the athletic among us that follow you… seeing the above ‘pre-morning workout’ made me feel queasy and sleepy logic-floaty, wondering why anyone would get up before the morning has morninged just to… exercise. But then I realized that what I thought to be a pre-dawn ritual was merely a pre (morning workout) snack, and my grammar mind trap had led me down a dark, thorny, bristly, brushy, windy, wind-y, cold path. Like usual.

    I saw these and immediately proclaimed to the room, the fella, the cat, and the spicy crab dip that THESE LOOK DELICIOUS. The first of your prune balls that I have immediately wanted to make. I’ll just have to buy some almonds, lemon, dates, prunes, poppy seeds and cashews first. My pantry is in such a woeful state these days !

    Surprised to see lemon included but I am sure it plays an important role. You sure it was flying rhinos and not flying pigs:)

    I understand people’s aversion to the word “moist” but what’s the alternative? Sometimes things *are* moist… all the other adjectives don’t quite hit the mark. Hmm. Please consider and get back to me (preferably after you’ve gotten a good night’s sleep). 🙂

    Oh Hannah, never change. You should write when sleepy more often, because it’s such a fun read. You do dreamy, wafty, wibbly, rambly so well. I’m grinning this much. Oh, you can’t see my hands, but I’m holding them wide apart bragging-fisherman style. Ok, that’s a lie; I’m typing and can’t hold my hands out and type at the same time. Unless I type with my nose, but that’s really awkward to do. So… just take my word that your writing made me grin a lot, ok? 😉

    I was very disappointed to find that helicopters were involved in the rhino story and that there aren’t, in fact, flying rhinos. 🙁 That disappointment was made up for by the amazing photos in the article though. Wow! 😮 It’s a story of hope and escape, in a way, but it’s still very sad.

    My curiosity is urging me to find out what truffles such as those taste like, especially after you’ve talked them up so. My usual distaste for almonds and dates says ‘no’, but my rule of keeping an open mind says ‘yes’…

  9. Lisa @ Blithe Moments

    Hee hee moist.

    These sound yummy though. I love a poppyseed anything really.

  10. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    I’m part of your vegan club as far as these sweet little treats and balls go (although I can’t do the rest) . These look fabulous my dear!

  11. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    I feel like one day you must surely reach the pinnacle of your raw vegan ball deliciousness, but somehow that pinnacle keeps getting moved higher and higher. Every time I think you’ve reached it you go yet higher!

    Maybe you’ll end up so high you can meet the flying rhinos in person… 😉

  12. Kelly @ Foodie Fiasco

    Now I know what to do with those leftover dates? Do you think I could do this with ground flax? I know that defeats the purpose and everything, but I just have so much of that stuff…

  13. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    ooooh lemon! love it. I just listened to Jackson – thank you, totally what I needed. Now I feel like sitting on a porch. Yet I have no porch furniture.

    Hmm, I’m thinking if I substituted sesame seeds for the poppy seeds I could make them today, without a trip into town. You’ve got me thinking. The wild side of the gang are still waiting for then peanut/choc slice and last night agreed that the two should be enjoyed separately. Gawd will I ever get any work done?

  15. penny aka jeroxie

    Interesting. It’s a vegan friend birthday this sat… shall attempt this for him

  16. Errign

    I haven’t had anything lemon-poppyseed in a hot minute, but since you said “shazam!”, I figure these are worth trying!

  17. Christine @ Merf In Progress

    Those look delicious. I need to make them pronto. Adding to my recipe page.

    Sitting in Bangkok reading your blog with a big smile. xoxo

  19. Melanie @ Melanie Cooks

    I love poppyseeds and lemon! The truffles look so good!

  20. Louise

    I like the lemon poppy seed combo too. These do sound fab, I take it that the lemon zest is “zest of 1 lemon”?

  21. Nic@diningwithastud

    Ohhh I hates recipe teasers yo!! Thanks for delivering!

  22. Richa@HobbyandMore

    i love the teeny crunch from poppy seeds.. your truffles are always so much fun! and yeah those poor rhinos.. all boozed up and then taken upside down.. what if one of them had motion sickness. he probably woke up sick for the day wondering wat the hell happened and where am i!!:) and where is my girlfriend.. !
    poaching is a sad reality for all sorts of wild animal parts and skins.. its ridiculous.

  23. Lexi

    I’m going to make these tonight, because a) they look super-yum and b) I think they’re perfect for sneaking past the State Library’s ‘NO FOOD!!!!’ policy. Dude, I’m in here for like, 10 hours a day. I need truffles!

  24. Lou

    ha, prunes + moist – double whammy there! hehehe.

    Yummo dude, these look super – have never tried lemon in these sorts of truffles, but I am intrigued… nice and refreshing I’m sure 🙂

    I never used to like dates (shock! horror!) but I was eating those crap little dried up pellet ones, not the big juicy medjool goodies so now I have the right stuff, I love them.

    I do so love a nice moist prune though (gag)

  25. hungryandfrozen

    Get some sleep, m’dear! (She says, at a quarter to midnight, with no intention of going to sleep anytime soon.)

    Can I just say this: I LOVE ALL YOUR TRUFFLES. I actually pledge that if you ever come to New Zealand I will insist on hosting you and we will make every single one of your truffle recipes. I love poppyseeds, these sound amazing.

  26. Kath Lockett

    “It’s like a circle of vegan dessert love” – you’ve won me over!

  27. Wendy @ Celiacs in the House

    I’ve just started experimenting with raw treats like this and now you’ve given me new ingredients to try. Poppy seeds and prunes.
