Raw Paleo Truffles



Well, they don't look like much but they are soooo good!

My sister HOF sent me this recipe for Lemon Meltaways. It sounded like it might be delicious and on our current cleanse, we are off dairy, grains, and sugars including fruit (stevia is ok) - so I was really wanting a treat.

Anyway, they did not turn out for me. I think my lemon was really big because all I could taste was lemon juice and the texture was like eating coconut oil by the spoon. Bleh. So... I started experimenting - and I'm so happy with the results! Paleo fudge!

Basic Idea:
2 parts coconut butter
1 part coconut oil
vanilla extract
flavoring: lemon zest or cacao powder
texture (optional): nuts or unsweetened coconut

Lemon Truffle:
4 TB coconut butter
2 TB coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 teeny scoop stevia
zest of half a lemon
2 TB cashews
2 TB unsweetend coconut
Mash coconut butter and oil with a fork until well blended. Warm just barely on the stove, if needed, to get them to mix. Mix in bowl with vanilla, stevia and zest. In a ziploc bag, mash cashews and coconut. Mix into coconut mixture. Mix well. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls and refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.

Cacao Truffles:
4 TB coconut butter
2 TB coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 teeny scoop stevia
2 tsp cacao (or more to taste)
slivered almonds
Mash coconut butter and oil with a fork until well blended. Warm just barely on the stove, if needed, to get them to mix. Mix in bowl with vanilla, stevia and cacao. Drop teaspoonfuls into slivered almonds and roll to coat. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.
