The perfect bite sized chocolate treat. Paleo, vegan and gluten free!

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Keyword: chocolate, dairy free, dessert, paleo, refined sugar free, truffles, vegan
Servings: 12 balls
  • 1/2 cup cacao butter
  • 1 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 6 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup cacao nibs
  • 1/3 cup pistachios
  • 1/3 cup desiccated coconut
  1. Add all of the ingredients to your food processor and make sure the lid is secure. The cacao powder will poof when you turn it on.

  2. Pulse for one minute. Then scrape down the sides.

  3. Continue pulsing until the cacao butter is melted and the mixture resembles a thick icing.

  4. Use a cookie scoop to scoop out 1 inch balls and roll them in your chosen topping. If you want to make it easier, use a very small bowl so that you can gently coat the balls by shaking them in the toppings. If your bowl is small enough, it will also allow the balls to hit the sides helping to shape them without you needing to touch them.

  5. Add to a parchment/slipmat lined baking sheet and refrigerate for 15 minutes.

  6. Remove from the baking sheet and enjoy! Store whatever you don't eat in the first five minutes in a sealed container.
