These simple to make Christmas truffles are Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Egg-free, Soya-free, Refined Sugar-free and suitable for those on the vegan, SCD, GAPS and Paleo (without the chocolate coating) diets.
Place all the ingredients, apart from the chocolate into a mini food processor (or 'normal' one if that is all you have). Whizz until you have a smooth paste. You may have to stop and start a lot and scrape down the sides to achieve this
Place the mixture in the freezer for 10 minutes (this make it easier to handle)
Remove the mixture from the freezer and roll it into approx. 20 bite-sized balls
Place back in the freezer for 10 minutes while you prepare the chocolate shell
Break the chocolate into pieces and place in a heatproof bowl. Add the coconut oil.
Either place the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, or into the microwave, to melt the mixture together. If you are using a microwave, melt the chocolate slowly (15 seconds at a time between stirs) or it will burn
Remove the truffles from the freezer and roll them in the melted chocolate mixture
Place on a plate and refrigerate until set and ready to eat
