Healthy White Chocolate Truffles

For all of the White Chocolate lovers out there, these healthy white chocolate truffles are a very important part of a delicious Christmas.  You could also make these as a gift – they are that good!  Just remember to keep them refrigerated!

Ingredients
100 gram cacao butter, melted
100 gram coconut oil melted
160gram (½ cup) of sweetener (Maple syrup or rice malt syrup)
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
80 gram (1 cup) coconut, desiccated
400 gram (approx. 4 cups) almond meal

Method

  1. Mix the cacao butter, coconut oil, sweetener and vanilla together until well combined.  If the weather is cool you may need to do this over a very low heat (or in a metal bowl over a pot of simmering water).
  2. Add in the rest of the ingredients and mix well until combined (I mixed mine in my Thermomix).
  3. Check the constancy of the mix, if it is not firm enough to roll into balls add a little more almond meal.
  4. If you are feeling lazy, or would prefer you can press this into a slice tin lined with baking paper.
  5. I rolled/topped mine with toasted desiccated coconut.
  6. Either way, pop into the freezer right away until firm.
  7. Store in the fridge or freezer in an airtight container.

Variations
No cacao butter
Replace with coconut oil.

Spice ’em up
Add a teaspoon of cinnamon powder and a teaspoon of mixed spice.

Macadamia centre
I rolled mine around a macadamia nut because I love them!

Low-fructose
Choose rice malt as your sweetener.

    Where can I get cacao butter?

  • Raya

    organicsonabudget.com.au have cocoa butter blocks of 500grams for $10.99 🙂 Its good too!

  • Simi

    Can I substitute anything for the almond meal please?

    • Any ground nut or seed will work well. You may just have to adjust the amount depending upon how dry they grind x

      • Simi

        Soya flour, semolina??

        • Simi, I’m really not sure, I have no experience with either. G x

  • Bridgette

    Made these today. They were delish! I used blanched almond meal but will try with regular almond meal next time…. I think thry may become a lunch box staple. Thank you, x

“I downloaded your ebooks after hearing you speak at the Health and Wellness Summit in Melbourne. Love them, life changing… Don’t stop! Thank you for getting the whole food message out there, I certainly heard it.” Melanie

“I love your ebooks, I have all three of them now and they are now my only go to receipe books. They are simple, wholesome and taste great. THANK YOU!!! I have spent alot of money on courses about healthy eating and recipe books but your books have covered it all and my little man enjoys the snacks etc. Wish I would have found you earlier “. Brooke

“I just want to say a huge thank you for your amazing website and information. I’ve never liked cooking and never got excited by my ‘healthy’ cooking. My husband is even worse and if he could, he would just eat beacon and eggs every morning and steak every night. He hardly ate any veggies. Since I found your website I have gone through almost every recipe. My husband is loving every meal as well – even meat free Monday, and he’s taking left-overs to work for lunch (honestly, who thought that could be so hard?!)” Rose

“You have truly helped me and my family to lead a healthier lifestyle. I’ve been referring to your page every few days, very inspiring, so thank you!” Emily

“I just wanted to let you know that you have absolutely inspired me to a better way of eating, I’ve been making my shopping lists based on recipes you’ve shared and am educating my kids with the reasons behind different foods and why they are good etc! This page has become my little bible hehe! Thank you so much for all the detail you give. It’s absolutely wonderful!” Sky
