Easy chestnut bonbons

By September 14, 2017Recipes

It really does take only 5 minutes to make these supereasy vegan chestnut bonbons. Keep a jar of precooked chestnuts just in case! Yes, I use ready to consume sweet European chestnuts.

I like this recipe both with carob and cacao. I find a combination of orange and cardamon flavours really nice, but, you know, I love cardamon in general… Feel free to experiment with other flavours.

The chestnut bonbons will keep in the refrigerator for about 72 hours.

Ingredients (10 bonbons)

  • 100 g cooked chestnuts
  • 2 tbsp carob powder or pure cacao
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1-2 tbsp agave syrup or maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp orange juice
  • A pinch of cardamon (optional)


  1. Melt the coconut oil over a low heat.
  2. Process all the ingredients using a blender or a food processor. You’ll get a sticky “dough”.
  3. 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).
  4. Refrigerate before serving for at least one hour.
  5. Keep in a cool place.
