PALEO COCONUT TRUFFLES
For those of you following the Paleo diet here is a candy recipe. Disclaimer: I do not eat paleo because it is not right for my health problems. However, I know many of you do so this recipe is for you. Obviously I have never made this recipe.
4 tbsp coconut butter (or cream), at room temperature (should be soft)
1 cup coconut flakes + 4 more tbsp for coating
3 tbsp honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
almonds, halved (optional – stuff them inside the snowballs for a more crunchy texture)
Put all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend well until creamy.
Put the 4 tbsp of coconut flakes in a small bowl.
Use your hands to roll into little snowballs, using 1 tsp per coconut ball
Optional – add almonds inside the coconut snowballs.
Coat them with coconut flakes
Leave in the fridge for at least 15-20 minutes before serving.
