Deliciously decadent truffles that are healthy – could it be true? Oh yes, it is! Hope you enjoy these delicious real food truffles too! Mmm!
As a fun twist to this delectable recipe, I’ve also used this as the base to create some scrumptious dairy-free, grain-free Raw Cookie Dough Bites – perfect for kids of all ages!
Raw Almond Butter Truffles (GF)
- 1 cup creamy raw almond butter
- 1/2 cup, plus 2 tbsp raw honey
- 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
- 1 tsp filtered water
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cups organic coconut flour
- 3 tbsp ground golden flax seed
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- Optional choices for rolling truffles: Unsweetened shredded coconut; fine-crushed dried strawberries; or carob, cocoa or raw cacao powder
- In a large bowl, mix together the raw almond butter, honey, coconut oil, water and vanilla until smooth and creamy.
- In a separate bowl, mix together the coconut flour, ground flax seed and salt.
- Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix well to combine.
- Use your hands to really knead the dough well to combine all the ingredients together.
- Then, scoop out tablespoon-size portions and roll into balls using your hands.
- Next, roll each truffle in your choice of toppings. Or melt some dark chocolate and dip each ball into the melted chocolate and place on wax paper to set.
- Refrigerate truffles for at least 30 minutes prior to serving.
- Store in airtight container in frig for up to a week or in freezer for up to one month.
- These truffles are perfect for parties, or just for fun! Enjoy!

This sounds good. Is the amount for the coconut flour (and other ingredients) correct? It seems like a lot of coconut flour to liquids.
Yes, all measurements are correct. Because of the large amount of nut butter, you’ll see why this amount of coconut flour is necessary. So please be sure to follow the directions as given. They truly are delicious, it’s been fun to see how excited people have gotten over these, particularly over my raw cookie dough bites. You can find those recipes here:
