|1/2 cup sunflower seed butter||3 tablespoons cacao powder||1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract|
|2 tablespoons grape seed oil||5 drops stevia concentrate|
|½ cup extra virgin coconut oil||¼ cup xylitol, ground||1 teaspoon alcohol-free pure vanilla extract|
|100g cacao paste or unsweetened chocolate, chopped||½ cup cacao powder, divided||25 drops stevia concentrate|
Coconut Butter: combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until fully combined. Tip: Sometimes sunflower butter can be a little on the oily side, if this is the case just adjust the recipe by removing the grapeseed oil. Set aside.
- Over low heat, melt your coconut oil and stir in your cacao paste, xylitol and your chocolate butter. Stir consistently to avoid burning or sticking.
- Once combined, slowly add half of your cacao powder, making sure it is fully incorporated before removing the pan from the heat.
- Stir in your remaining ingredients and place in the fridge for 2-3 hours – you will want the mixture to be a little more firm and easier to handle.
- Place your remaining cacao powder in a small dish. Set aside.
- Using your hands, take the firm mixture and create bite sized, truffle balls. Roll in the cacao powder and place on a serving dish or in an airtight container. Repeat until all mixture is gone.
- Serve right away, or store in the fridge/freezer until you’re ready to serve!
Make It This Way
For best results, try grinding the xylitol in a coffee grinder in order to get the right consistency. If you don't have xylitol on hand, then ground coconut palm sugar can be substituted- it is also a much healthier alternative.
