Practical Paleo. You may have gotten your hands on a copy of this recently released book which looks bound for the New York Times Bestseller List. I did last week and was mighty pleased. Not only is it a wonderful Paleo cookbook, it is a practical guide to dealing with various health conditions, and more.
Admittedly, I have not read the book cover to cover, I have merely perused. However, I liked what I saw and want to share my version of one recipe that caught my eye, Chocolate Mint Truffles. They’re easy to make and full of something I’m trying to eat more of everyday: coconut oil.
Here’s my version of Diane Sanfilippo’s Paleo dessert.
Practical Paleo: Mint Chip Truffles
- Combine coconut oil, coconut butter and macadamia nut butter in a vitamix
- Pulse in stevia, honey, mint and salt
- Transfer mixture to a small bowl
- Stir in chocolate
- Refrigerate bowl for 10-15 minutes
- Scoop mixture into paper lined mini muffin cups
- Refrigerate and serve chilled
Makes 6 truffles
When I scooped the mixture into the muffin cups I used a 1 tablespoon ice cream scoop which came in very handy. If you want to make a solid truffle (that is flat and not domed on top) then don’t refrigerate the mixture, simply transfer the liquified concoction into the paper lined mini muffin cups and chill to harden.
