Coconut Dream Truffles

  • Author: Fanny Slater
  • Total Time: 1 hour, 35 minutes
  • Yield: 12 truffles 1x


Sweetened with honey and rolled in coconut, these tasty truffles packed with ground almonds are a healthy take on candy that you’ll dig.


  • 3/4 cup whole raw almonds
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut, divided
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil, melted and cooled to room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon coarse salt


  1. Add the almonds, 1/2 cup of the shredded coconut, the honey, coconut oil, vanilla, and salt to a food processor or high-speed blender. Using 1-second pulses, pulse for about 10-15 seconds, scraping the sides down as needed, until the ingredients form a cohesive paste that still has some texture.
  2. Transfer to a medium bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate the mixture until slightly hardened, about 15-20 minutes. 
  3. Place the remaining shredded coconut in a shallow bowl. 
  4. Using a tablespoon as your guide, form the paste into a ball with your hands, and then roll it in the shredded coconut to coat. Place the ball in a mini cupcake liner and transfer to a large plate or platter. Repeat with the remaining almond-coconut mixture.
  5. Cover the plate of finished truffles with plastic wrap and transfer to the fridge to chill and harden for at least 1 hour before serving. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
