I love yummy treats that are super easy to make! Even better when you don't even have to turn on the oven. I'm not the most patient baker and I'm terrible at keeping track of the time so I end up with burnt, barely edible baked goods quite often. So I'm excited to share with you guys a recipe that's only four ingredients and so simple you can whip them up for any occasion.
These little truffles are so tasty you would never believe they're actually packing lots of protein and ingredients that are better for you than the packaged stuff you'll find in stores. I'd much rather my child have sweets made with coconut oil and almond butter versus something full of sugar, high fructose corn syrup and countless other things I can't even pronounce.
The secret ingredient that makes these chocolate truffles so amazingly delicious is something new I found at Costco:
LÄRABAR Chocolate Coconut Cashew and Almond Butter!
Yes, it's from the same LÄRA brand that makes all those yummy snack bars that come in a ton of tasty flavors. Now they're doing the nut butter thing too, and it's awesome! I couldn't wait to try the Chocolate Coconut Cashew and of course I had to grab the Banana Nut one too. They’re available exclusively at North East and Bay Area Costco locations.
Now let's get back to making these Chocolate Nut Butter Truffles
CHOCOLATE NUT BUTTER TRUFFLES RECIPE
- 1 cup LÄRABAR Chocolate Coconut Cashew and Almond Butter
- 2 tablespoons of real maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
- 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
How to Make:
- In food processor, combine nut butter, maple syrup and coconut oil. Cover and process until well combined and mixture can be pressed into a ball, about 1 minute. Cover and refrigerate 15 minutes
- Place coconut in small shallow bowl. Shape mixture into small balls and roll each ball to cover with coconut flakes. I used a small cookie scoop. Makes about 15 to 20 balls.
- Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and place balls.
- Chill about 1 hour or until firm. Place in storage container. Store covered in refrigerator up to 1 week.
