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
2 cups toasted Pecans
1 cup coconut oil
2 cups Almond Butter
½ cup coconut flour
½ teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup unsweetened coconut, shredded and toasted
1 cup Ground Chia Seeds
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon almond extract
½ teaspoon sea salt
⅓ cup Macadamia Nuts, ground
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.
