Oooo, these truffles are cool, fudgy treats of goodness! I’ve coated them in some lightly salted sunflower and pumpkin seeds.

This recipe is from Katrine Volynsky’s Raw Chocolate Bliss Class in Vancouver.

    Wow. So good. I’ve made your truffles before and they are a life changer.

    Hi – I just made these and they are DELICIOUS!!! Just for clarification, though – was that 1 to 2 tablespoons of coconut butter? Thanks so much :-)

    William — Yes, I refer to these as life changing too! Healthy AND delicious – now that’s a real treat!

    Susan — I am so glad to hear you like them! Yes, 1 to 2 tablespoons of coconut butter. I’ve actually been out of coconut butter for a while now and using 1 tablespoon of coconut oil instead and it works perfectly as well. :)

    There are delicious as a treat, made with rich intense natural foods, but should not be confused as “healthy” food as many are commenting on.
