Ingredients

  • 1 large ripe avocado (each approx. 4 inches in height~7 ounces)
  • 3/8 cup coconut butter
  • 3/8 cup cocoa (see notes for carob sub information)
  • 3 Tbsp powdered coconut sugar (use xylitol, erythritol, or another low-carb sweetener for keto / low-carb)
  • 3/32 tsp pure stevia extract (or 3 scoops)
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 dashes cayenne (optional - omit for AIP)
  • Toppings (crushed pumpkin seeds, coconut, cocoa, powdered sweetener, etc.)

Instructions

  • Place all ingredients in a food processor.
  • Process until well mixed.
  • Place in a bowl in the refrigerator until fairly firm (approx. 40 min), or alternatively use the freezer for 10-20 minutes.
  • Using a small cookie scoop or melon baller, scoop out balls of the avocado mixture and roll into balls.
  • Roll the balls into desired topping.
  • Refrigerate or freeze any remaining truffles for later.

Notes

For a low-carb option, use powdered xylitol instead of coconut sugar, or substitute ¼ cup powdered organic erythritol.
