Healthy Christmas Truffles

More Christmas prep over here. Yes I know, who even am I? Actually let’s be honest. I made these healthy Christmas truffles last week. There are none left. I’m not ashamed. They were amazing.

 

These are full of good stuff. Don’t go crazy though – they are mostly nuts after all.  They make the perfect homemade Christmas gift or snack to take to late afternoon Chrissie get-togethers.

 

Enjoy!

 

Ingredients

1 cup almonds

1 1/2 cups hazelnuts

2 1/2 cups shredded coconut

3/4 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup honey

1/2 cup cacao or cocoa

To roll –

1/4 cup desiccated coconut

1 tbs cocoa

 

Method

Place all ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth.  Check they can be rolled evenly into balls (Add extra nuts or coconut if too wet. Add a touch more honey or coconut oil if too dry.)

Mix extra cocoa and desiccated coconut on a plate.

Roll mixture into balls, coat in chocolate coconut and place in the fridge to set.

Hide extras in back of the fridge so family doesn’t eat them all on you.

Enjoy!
