ALMOND HEMP CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES  for a Happy Gut

Ingredients

½ cup almond butter

6 tablespoons coconut oil, refrigerated until solid

½ cup hemp seeds

½ cup almond flour

2 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons cocoa powder, plus more to coat

Unsweetened coconut flakes, to coat

Finely chopped almonds, to coat

Step 1:

Mix together all the ingredients (except the coconut flakes, almonds, and extra cocoa powder) in a mixing bowl and form into 1-inch balls.

Step 2:

Roll each ball in the coconut flakes, almonds, or cocoa powder to make a variety of truffle balls. Place on a serving dish or set aside in an airtight container.

Tip: The hemp seeds add texture to these truffles. If you like a smoother consistency, grind the seeds in a food processor or spice grinder first.
