Mix coconut oil, unsweetened cocoa, raw honey, finely shredded coconut and coconut milk, form into 1/2" balls, roll in coconut. (You can substitute finely chopped raw nuts if you prefer, and add a tiny bit of vanilla or almond extract.)

  • 4 tbs. coconut oil, raw, extra-virgin, organic
  • 4 tbs. honey, raw, unfiltered, organic
  • 4 tbs. cacao powder, raw, organic
  • 4 tbs. coconut, unsweetened, shredded, organic
  • 1 tbs. coconut milk, unsweetened, full-fat, organic, canned

This has a lovely dark chocolate flavor. Mix the oil, cocoa powder, honey and finely shredded raw coconut together well in a small bowl, adding a bit of milk if you need to. You can add almond extract here if you wish. With clean hands scoop up a teaspoon of mixture, form into a ball, then roll in coconut. This should make about 12 truffles. Refrigerate, but let come to room temperature prior to eating for the best flavor.

*Coach's Note: Makes 12 truffles. One serving is 2 truffles.
