Paleo Chocolate Truffles

Paleo chocolate truffles

I love rich desserts! Especially rich chocolatey desserts. Truffles have been one of my weaknesses ever since I could say “Lindor”. After going Paleo I pretty much stopped making treats because I wasn’t all that great of a baker to begin with…..and now with a limited list of ingredients to use I decided to throw in the towel. That didn’t last long, however, because I have a little girl who wants to make cookies and treat for Christmas. Who could deny her that?! After much experimentation in the kitchen I came up with Paleo Chocolate Truffles.



  • Soak the dates over night in water, or (how I do it) bring them to a simmer for a few minutes in some water until they plump up
  • Put all ingredients (minus the “rolling” coconut) into a food processor
  • Blend until a paste forms
  • Using a spatula scoop mixture out and put it into another bowl
  • Cover bowl and put into fridge to chill for at least one hour
  • Once mixture is chilled and firm, use a cookie-dough scoop to scoop uniform balls out (this handy little tool also helps keep the dough from sticking to the scooper!)


  • Roll balls between hands to make them a perfectly round shape


  • Roll them in the shredded coconut


  • Place onto a cookie sheet and chill in the fridge until firm
  • You can also freeze them!

    I will be substituting something else for the coconut. I don’t like coconut. Thinking a nut and coco powder to cover.
