Delicious Healthy Truffles

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Elise and family

These make a great snack or dessert. I keep them in a bowl in the fridge, covered, for about three days, and my family munches one or two when they want a bit of something instead of having a piece of chocolate or a cookie. I adapted the recipe from George Mateljan's World's Healthiest Foods website.

Excellent recipe. I only used about 1/4 cup of coconut, and I substituted honey for the maple syrup. I also added a bit of water after mixing in the cocoa, because it was so dry. Definitely a keeper, thanks!
