If you don’t have a lot of time on your hands or you’re looking for an easy-to-make treat that can impress, these Paleo ‘Peanut’ Butter Truffles are the perfect dessert.
These chocolatey sweets come together in just 20 minutes. Make it a family affair, if you have little ones they will LOVE helping you roll up these truffles and dipping them in chocolate!
The filling is made of all-natural almond butter (you could even grind it yourself), coconut flour, and coconut sugar, for the perfect textured center. The almond butter is the perfect substitute to achieve that “nutty” flavor.
The outside coating is made of only dark chocolate and coconut oil. Make sure to choose a good quality dark chocolate for this little project — no high-fructose corn syrup, please!
These little creamy morsels will be the a total hit at any event you bring them to or will be the perfect DIY gift for a friend or family member.
- 3/4 cup all-natural almond butter
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 cup coconut palm sugar
- 1/2 cup good quality dark chocolate
- 1 t coconut oil
How To Make It
1. Mix together the almond butter, coconut flour, and coconut palm sugar until smooth.
2. Roll into ¾ to 1 inch balls and place on parchment paper-lined cookie sheet.
3. Place the cookie sheet in the freezer to harden for 15-20 minutes.
4. Before taking out your truffles, prepare your coating by melting your chocolate and coconut oil in the microwave for 20 second intervals on 50% power until almost completely melted. Mix to let the last of the chocolate melt.
5. Using a toothpick, dip one truffle at a time in the chocolate to completely cover the truffle and place on baking sheet. (If you want you can spoon a tiny bit of chocolate on top to cover the hole on top.)
6. Once all the truffles are covered, place the cookie sheet in the freezer and allow to harden at least 30 minutes. Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.
