Apparently I’m on a truffle kick. I tried out these lil’ guys this morning because they were fast and I had all the ingredients on hand. They are yet another spin on a Practical Paleo recipe. Diane’s book had made some great recipes really easy and accessible. I am genuinely grateful for this book.
Tahini truffles really remind me of halva (see here and here). These are almost like my Raw chocolate Halva actually. I used a pre-made (home made) chocolate coconut butter and I used honey (Diane’s recipe used regular coconut butter and some maple syrup). Both of these things contributed to the Halva-like taste.
If you want a quick, sweet treat… mix these up pronto!
2 Tbsp. tahini
1/4 c. coconut butter
1-2 tsp. honey
dash of cinnamon
1-2 Tbsp. shredded coconut (unsweetened)
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
chia seeds, sesame seeds, or shredded coconut for rolling
- In a bowl, mix together all ingredients except for the rolling stuff.
- Form “dough” into tablespoon sized balls and roll in seeds or coconut.
- Chill until firm and EAT!
