Avocado Coconut Truffles with Dark Chocolate

Ingredients for the Truffles:

2 1/2 cups shredded coconut, unsweetened
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup avocado, mashed


Ingredients for the Chocolate Coating:

1/2 cup melted coconut oil
3/4 cup raw cacao powder
1/4 cup maple syrup


Instructions:

Mix the shredded coconut, maple, coconut oil and avocado.

Form the mixture into small balls by squeezing until a ball forms. Once you have the balls rolled, freeze for 1 hour or so until they are firm.

For the chocolate coating, whisk the ingredients together in a bowl until smooth.

Next, remove the truffles from the freezer and insert a skewer through the middle (don't poke all the way through them). One by one, dip them into the chocolate coating and place in the refrigerator to set. Dust with matcha powder (optional).

Tip: You can double coat your truffles with leftover chocolate once the first layer has dried.
