A truffle that is refined sugar free and only 35 calories… not possible I hear you say? Well I defy to prove you wrong!
They’ve got a hard chocolatey outer shell and soft rich centre and they are so GOD DAMN MOREISH.
It’s the coconut … I can’t get enough …
Coconut and Cacao Truffles
- 250 g pumpkin puree (or butternut squash puree link to how to make that below
- 40 g coconut oil
- 10 g coconut flour
- 10 g cacao powder
- 60 g chocolate (preferably dark or no-added sugar, such as ombar or chocologic
Melt the coconut oil.
Mix the pumpkin, melted oil, coconut flour, and cacao powder thoroughly
Refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
After refrigerated, roll into balls of 1 tsp amounts.
Melt the chocolate.
Using a fork and/or tooth picks, dip the truffles into the chocolate and roll until coated (this is a bit fiddly and messy, it doesn't matter if they look a little rustic)
Leave the coated balls to refrigerate for a few hours (overnight if possible) until set.
