A recipe on a Sunday? Nope, you’re eyes aren’t deceiving you. I’m trialling out a new posting schedule and going with a recipe today and a catch up style post on Monday. 

‘If my other half is paleo and it’s Valentine’s day, would I give them a hunk of cheese?’

‘No. Because cheese is definitely not paleo.’

Clearly my sister’s knowledge of the paleo diet hasn’t progressed since her failed paleo challenge. She still thinks the only foods that those following a paleo lifestyle don’t eat are gummy bears and coke. She clearly forgot that time I made her Paleo truffles…which was the inspiration for this recipe. 

Australia, much like many other countries, love to go crazy whenever there is a holiday of some sort. They take it to the point of starting to bring out seasonal products far too early than reasonable. 

Christmas- Stores start stocking trees, decorations and gift packs in August.

Easter- Hot Cross Buns and seasonal eggs hit the shelves mere weeks after Christmas.

Mother’s Day- All things Pink and feminine start trending in March.

Father’s Day- One week beforehand….because everyone shops for dad at the last second.

Hitting the supermarket over the last few weeks, I’ve noticed chocolate boxes coming in heart shapes, certain chips and snacks coming in pink packaging and some silly ploys by companies to make a dollar on this holiday….like pumpkins being coloured pink.

WHO WILL BUY A PINK PUMPKIN?

Okay, I might. 

But seriously Australia. I wonder what it will be tomorrow. Pink chia seeds or pink dyed almond milk. 

I’ve realised with blogging and especially with sharing recipes, being seasonal or sticking to the festive season is beneficial. Don’t ask me why I started posting Thanksgiving style recipes like these muffins AFTER the actual day, or the fact that I thought gingerbread and pumpkin would trend in June.

 I’m on my A-Game for Valentine’s day by giving ample time with this recipe. Based off the original Paleo truffles, these literally take 5 minutes to whip up- The most time consuming part is dipping the truffles in the optional coconut cream frosting and (for those who aren’t following a paleo style of eating) the extra dipping in sprinkles.

These truffles aren’t reserved JUST for Valentine’s Day- You can snack on them (like I do!) and yes…even with the sprinkles. They may or may not have fuelled a workout with my Niki over the weekend. By workout I mean sitting on the exercise bike and going through my instagram feed

For the Truffles
  1. 1 cup coconut flour, sifted
  2. 2 T cocoa powder, sifted
  3. 1/2 tsp sea salt
  4. 1 T chopped nuts of choice (I used chopped almonds)
  5. 2 T dried unsweetened raspberries
  6. 1/2 cup mild tasting nut butter of choice (I used homemade 'nutella')
  7. 1/2 cup maple syrup (can sub for honey if not vegan)
  8. 1/4-3/4 cup unsweetened almond or coconut milk*
For the white chocolate coating
  1. 3/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  2. 1/2 tsp sea salt
  3. 1 T + 1 tsp maple syrup
Instructions
  1. Line a large baking tray with baking paper and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the coconut flour, cocoa powder, sea salt, chopped nuts and dried raspberries.
  3. In a small microwave safe bowl, combine the maple syrup and nut butter until melted together. Add the mixture in the dry and mix until well combined- the batter should be extremely crumbly.
  4. Slowly add the almond milk until it reaches a firm batter consistency. Using your hands, form into golf ball sized balls and set aside on a plate or tray.
  5. In a small bowl, combine the melted coconut oil and maple syrup until a thick frosting is made. Acting quickly, dip the truffles in the frosting and ensure fully coated. If desired, dip in sprinkles straight after and place back on the baking tray. Continue the process until all the truffles are coated. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes for truffles to firm up.
Notes
  1. Coconut flours differ brand by brand so add the milk very slowly to achieve the right consistency.
  2. These truffles taste good without the frosting- It can be quite tedious to do but delicious all the same.

  1. Now I really want pink chia seeds! Somebody find a way to grow these, please?! Just think of all the happy paleo and vegan people using them as sprinkles – and me throwing them into my oats.
    The truffles sound deeelish. Makes me wish the store usually ordering coconut flour for me hadn’t failed to do so last week.

  2. Yum! Love the “white chocolate” coating. What’s really horrifying is that fact that I saw the stores displaying EASTER candy back in December…..like wouldn’t it go bad by then if you bought it THAT early!? Hahahaha!

  3. I LOVE the raspberry chocolate combo!
    The last pink thing I ate was my greek yogurt with crushed frozen berries.
    My significant other has a crazy sweet tooth, and he will love these for valentine’s day!
    I notice that for certain holidays, the start getting holiday themed products two months in advance.

  4. Hahaha…I love the observation that Dad gets the shaft when it comes to his holiday. But it’s totally true! It’s like, “Oh crap, Father’s Day is tomorrow. What will I get Dad? Hmmm…maybe I’ll regift him a tie from his closet. He won’t even know!”

    And when it comes to these truffles, let’s just say I need a tray of these bad boys. Right now. Thanks.

  5. These look so yummy. I do have a significant other- husband actually 🙂 And I believe I saw East stuff at the store the other day. It’s still January! Oh the craziness. It comes out so early, and then I always wait until the last minute because it makes me feel like I have “plenty” of time so I just wait..not wanting to buy too early.

  6. And now you’re sharing pink sprinkled balls. Actually these might be my favorite partially because I love raspberries. Wait, you’re using fruit?! Oh my gawd, who are you and what have you done with Arman?

    You can keep the pink pumpkin. If you’d like, I’ll give you the three orange ones in my basement right now.

  7. Haha Canadian stores are always way ahead of holidays too. I saw Easter chocolate in the grocery store this week. Umm who in their right mind is buying Easter candy right now?!

    These look so good. The chocolate and raspberry combo reminds me of these frozen tartufos I used to LOVE as a kid.

  8. I always forget about Father’s Day until that night and I call my dad saying “…and you thought I forgot…” The candy section on my grocery store is all pink, but it is not the level of intoxication. I went on Pinterest fails the other night and saw some awesome Valentine’s Day fails I will NOT be doing. One woman made a candy baby to give to her hubby to tell him about her pregnancy…to be honest the thing looked like a melting pink fish. Ew. No pregnancies or significant others for me this year.

  9. Holy. Frack. Are you for real? Seriously my birthday is on valentines day and if my truffles dont look and taste like these then I don’t want em! My taste buds are screaming for these babies. Too bad I’m fairly sure my husband would lose a finger trying to make these for me. Or worse, break my food processor.

  10. Arman, these are so pretty, and they sound so good. You need to start setting up a delivery service, my friend. You always make the most wonderful protein snacks. Have a wonderful weekend, Catherine
