14 Nov RECIPE: Healthy Coconut Matcha Truffles – Vegan, Paleo, Gluten-Free
Looking for something sweet? Indulge in these decadent truffles that will give you a healthy boost!
Paleo, vegan, gluten-free and low-glycemic…now that’s my kind of treat!
Each truffle has only about 1 gram of sugar! (But you’d never know it.)
Makes about 18 truffles
2 Bars of Signature Dark Primal Chocolate (5oz)
1/4 teaspoon salt (Celtic Sea Salt or Pink Himalayan)
2 Tablespoons, plus 1 teaspoon Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener
4 Tablespoons canned coconut milk (not lite)
1 cup unsweetened finely shredded coconut
1 Tablespoon organic matcha (choice grade)
Heat chocolate and sweetener in a double boiler until chocolate is almost completely melted. Remove from heat and stir until smooth. Add salt and coconut milk, followed by shredded coconut, stirring to incorporate.
Using a level tablespoon for each, roll mixture into rounds and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment. Place in fridge for 10 minutes to cool.
While waiting, grind remaining teaspoon of sweetener into a fine powder using a mortar and pestle. Combine with matcha powder in a very small bowl.
When truffles are ready, roll them in matcha mixture until lightly coated.
Store truffles in the refrigerator until 2 hours prior to serving.
Pack in boxes and give as gifts or plate them for serving. Enjoy!
