MATCHA TRUFFLES

on

Cheryl from Lean Green Nutrition Fiend believes that Matcha is just too damn delicious to not put it in basically everything- your smoothies, your baked goods, and yes, your truffles.

These Matcha Truffles look delicious covered in dark chocolate!

 

 

INGREDIENTS:

1 Avocado, peeled and pitted
1½ Tablespoons Coconut Oil
½ cup Coconut Flour (Bob’s Red Mill Organic Coconut Flour)
4 Tablespoons Honey or Maple Syrup
4 Teaspoons Encha Culinary-grade Organic Japanese Matcha
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Melting Wafers
Matcha powder to top

 

Prep Time: 15 min
Total Time: 20 min
Makes 20-25 truffles

 

DIRECTIONS:

Place the Avocado, Coconut Oil, Coconut Flour, Honey, Matcha, and Vanilla Extract into a food processor or a mixing bowl

Pulse or mix together until well-blended and the chunks of avocado are thoroughly mixed in

Using your hands, roll ½ Tablespoon of mixture into tiny balls

Place these balls onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper

Place these balls into the refrigerator while you proceed to melt the dark chocolate

Place Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Melting Wafers into a microwaveable bowl

Warm the chocolate in 15-second intervals and stir in between

Once the chocolate is thoroughly melted and the chocolate chunks are melted, take the balls out of the refrigerator and dip into the dark chocolate

Place dipped truffles onto the parchment paper

Sprinkle each truffle with extra matcha powder (optional)

Once all the balls are coated in the chocolate, place back into the refrigerator until chocolate has completely hardened

When chocolate has hardened, take the truffles out of the fridge, serve, and enjoy!
