I hope you are all doing well and enjoying this spring weather! In this post I will share with you one of my favorite treats when I crave something sweet.
I have been making these coconut truffles for many years and I got the recipe from Karita Tykkä's blog. I love reading her blog and trying out her recipes. All of the recipes are gluten-free and dairy free. During the years I have made some alternation to this recipe but the basics are somewhat following:
2 dl nuts ( you can use cashew nuts or pecan nuts)
4 tbsp raw cacao powder
3 tbsp honey
(1 tbsp grounded raw coffee)
coconut flakes for decoration
1. Mix the nuts and raw cacao powder in a mixer.
2. Add honey and coffee. If the mix is too stiff, add a little water.
3. Roll small balls from the dough and dip them into coconut flakes. I put the flakes into a bowl and then it is easy to roll the balls.
4. Put the truffles into a jar and keep in a fridge. Enjoy after 1 hour when they have stiffen in the fridge. You can put them into freezer as well.
I love this recipe because it is easy to make and I usually have all the ingredients in my pantry. One warning: when you taste these, you don't want to settle for one ☺
Lots of love,
