Delicious Coconut, Chia & Lime Truffles

Oh yes! I love coconut. Anything coconut is my weakness! I love coconut oil and its so good for you full of rich fatty acids and healthy fat (don’t be scared of healthy fats, your body needs them… in moderation of course)

Coconut oil contains a lot of medium chain triglycerides, which are metabolized differently and can have therapeutic effects on several brain disorders.

So I had this wonderful coconut butter from Artesana and I decided to make some truffles. My son doesn’t like the texture of the coconut butter by itself, which granted can be a little weird. Therefore I mixed it with some grated coconut, some chia seeds, lime zest and lime juice and the result was heaven!!

You need:
coconut butter/oil (do not melt)

1 lime – juice and zest

a table spoon of chia seeds

2 tablespoons of stevia or sweetener of your choice

4 tablespoons of grated coconut

(extra grated coconut or coconut flakes for covering the truffles after)

Mix it all Ingredients in a container using first a wooden spoon and then your hand to mix well.

Make little balls and cover with more coconut, and refrigerate for 15mins.

soo soo soooo good! You can also customize this into amazingly healthy and tasty halloween treats by covering with layered white chocolate to make them look like ghosts or mummies. I might try that next!

Enjoy!
