I’m on day 17 of my ONLY REAL FOOD diet.
So far I’ve lost 9 pounds and feel amazing.
The only thing is…I’ve missed getting my chocolate fix. Dark chocolate with 73% cocoa still has some sugar in it, so it’s off-limits.
So I threw a bunch of yummy stuff into the food processor, along with some unsweetened cocoa, and ended up with Real Food Truffles 🙂
These are not overly sweet and are high in fat, so one little truffle will give you energy for an entire afternoon without spiking your blood sugar.
- In a food processor, grind the pecans. Mix in the coconut oil and almond butter. Mix in the coconut flour and cocoa powder. Blend thoroughly.
- Transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl and mix in the shredded coconut, chia seeds, vanilla and almond extracts and the salt.
- Form small balls with the chocolate mixture. Roll each ball in the ground macadamia nuts.
- Refrigerate to harden, and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
