Coconut Almond Butter Truffles

AS AN AMAZON ASSOCIATE I EARN FROM QUALIFYING PURCHASES

These simple, no bake, 3 ingredient coconut almond butter truffles are a delicious guilt-free treat that come together in just minutes. Vegan, paleo and gluten-free.

Yesterday, I spent 5 hours in my pajamas, on the couch, researching Groupon deals to warm, sunshine filled faraway lands as I looked out onto my half snow covered/half sopping wet backyard on a disgusting grey, cold, foggy day.

These simple, no bake, 3 ingredient coconut almond butter truffles are a delicious guilt-free treat that come together in just minutes. Vegan, paleo and gluten-free.

I contemplated Atlantis, Vegas, Cancun, Jamaica and Dominican Republic for hours before finally honing in on DR as the best deal.

Then I read every single sentence on the Groupon page because I’ve never actually purchased a Groupon before, have no idea how the whole thing really works and was convinced I was going to click “buy” and instantly become part of some internet scam people would laugh at me for falling for.

Since I still wasn’t positive about the whole thing I started googling “Groupon + scam” “Groupon + vacation” and any other term I could think of to ease the paranoia.

45 minutes of that and then I was on to researching flights. A vacation deal is great, but what if the airfare is like $2000?

Almost an hour later on Jetblue’s site, I had a page worth of flight dates and prices written down. Back to the Groupon site, re-read the entire FAQ section, double check the resort on Tripadvisor, triple check the resort on it’s own website and then head back to Groupon. There I am hovering over the “buy” button for about 30 minutes switching back and forth from Twitter to Groupon, Facebook to Groupon, google reader to Groupon when…

I get up off the couch and make these coconut almond butter truffles instead.

Too.much.pressure.

Almond butter dessert bites

What’s In These Coconut Almond Butter Truffles?

The ingredients for these dessert bites couldn’t be simpler:

The chocolate dip is simply coconut oil and cocoa powder mixed together. You could definitely melt chocolate chips with the coconut oil for an even more indulgent truffle if you wanted.

Coconut almond butter truffles…way less of a commitment than a vacation, almost as good a fix for a dark, dreary, cold day.

I usually tend to make big purchase decisions almost too quickly but hem and haw over small ones for days on end.

This time it was the exact opposite (probably how it should be anyway) but not gonna complain when the result is these lusciously decadent coconut almond butter truffles.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup coconut butter
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter (creamy is best)

  1. Combine coconut & almond butter in a small bowl and microwave until melted.
  2. Stir with a spoon until smooth.
  3. Add almond extract and salt if using and stir again.
  4. Freeze for about 10 minutes or until mostly hardened.
  5. Remove from freezer and roll into balls (this is slightly messy)

What is coconut butter? Is it like coconut oil?

No it's different. It's basically the coconut version of any nut butter. If you google it or search on Amazon you'll find it. You can also usually find it at any health food store like Whole Foods or your local equivalent. Artisana is the brand I buy.

love! I made these, but poured them into my mini cupcake pan (with liners) and it was so easy and not as messy.
