Ingredients

FOR TRUFFLES

FOR CHOCOLATE COATING

Instructions

  • Place a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper in the refrigerator.
  • Melt 1 tablespoon of coconut oil, then let it cool to the point that it’s still liquid but not hot.
    1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk the almond flour to break up clumps. Add the melted coconut oil, agave or honey, vanilla, almond butter, a pinch of salt, and stevia drops. Mix well with a wooden spoon.
    1 tablespoon coconut oil, 1 cup almond flour, 1 tablespoon raw agave nectar, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 2 tablespoons almond butter, Sea salt, 5 drops flavored liquid stevia sweetener drops
  • Add the almond milk and stir until well combined. If the consistency is too thick, add up to another tablespoon of almond milk.
    1 tablespoon unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • Take a scant teaspoon of the mixture, roll it into a ball, and place it on the cold cookie sheet. Repeat with the remaining mixture to form 16 balls.
  • Place the cookie sheet back in the refrigerator for about an hour.
  • Place the chocolate and ½ a teaspoon of coconut oil in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 20 second increments, stirring between each one, until the chocolate is smooth and shiny.
    ¾ cup dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips, ½ teaspoon coconut oil
  • Add the almond extract and mix well.
    ⅛ teaspoon almond extract
  • One at a time, roll a truffle ball in the chocolate until it’s completely coated. Use a thick toothpick to pull the ball out of the chocolate and let the excess drip off, then place it back on the parchment-lined cookie sheet. Repeat with the remaining truffle balls.
  • Refrigerate for another hour or until the chocolate is set.
