      These were pretty good. I think you could get creative use other things for the coating, like finely shredded coconut. I did one thing wrong though....I used my oldest (over-ripe) bananas. And I think it made it a bit too mushy because the truffles didn't hold their shape very well. But they were tasty. So I will make these again but will use fresh bananas so the truffles will retain their shape better. Thanks for sharing your recipe Sam. Made for "Please Review My Recipe" tag game.
