Chocolate Coconut Pecan Truffles

Dec 20, 2020

Eating well isn’t about willpower or restriction. It’s about finding alternatives and balance to enjoy food while caring for your body. 

Enter, Chocolate Coconut Pecan Truffles!

 

Sugar is a main source of inflammation, especially when it comes to gut and hormone healing.

If you’re on your healing journey and trying to avoid sugar for healing reasons, it can be difficult when you want a little treat.

These truffles fill that craving for something sweet but without any sugar. By using unsweetened cocoa powder you avoid any sugars that would be in a chocolate bar, but with all the chocolatey flavor.

Mixed with coconut and pecans you get a decadent truffle that’s so delicious.

You can add a couple drops of stevia or monkfruit extract for a hint of sweetness without added sugars that would disrupt your gut or blood sugar. Or if you can tolerate sugars, add 1 tablespoon of honey or 1 date. That’s really all the sweetness you’d need in this recipe!
