Chocolate Truffles with Coconut Oil

24 truffles

These Chocolate Truffles are a crowd-pleasing treat and make excellent gifts (especially for those who don’t believe eating healthy can be delicious and satisfy your sweet tooth every once in a while). This version is vegan, gluten-free, and has the benefits of coconut oil (including medium-chain triglycerides and lauric acid). If you’re on one of my programs, I recommend waiting until you’re in the Transition Phase to enjoy these treats
