Coconut Almond Butter Truffles

Servings: 2 servings

Ingredients

1/4 cup coconut butter
2 tablespoons almond butter (creamy is best)
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
pinch of salt (*optional)

Optional Chocolate Dip

1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tablespoon coconut oil

 

Instructions

Combine coconut & almond butter in a small bowl and microwave until melted.

Stir with a spoon until smooth.

Add almond extract and salt if using and stir again.

Freeze for about 10 minutes or until mostly hardened.

Remove from freezer and roll into balls (this is slightly messy)

Return to freezer for about 5 minutes.

If dipping in chocolate, melt coconut oil in a small bowl and then stir in cocoa powder until fully incorporated. Dip each ball in chocolate mixture and set down until chocolate sets. Re-dip for a thicker coating if desired and let set again.

Keep refrigerated.
