Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles made with almond flour and coconut oil and sweetened with honey. Gluten free, Casein free

These chocolate chip cookie dough truffles are made with almonds, coconut oil, honey, chocolate chips, vanilla and a dash of salt, and can be coated with chocolate or served plain.  (The first batch disappeared before I got a chance to dip them.) Once you try these tasty little cookie bites, you’ll be hooked.  Even my somewhat finicky husband loves them.  They’re a great way to get more coconut oil into your diet.  (The Tropical Traditions website has a great recipe page with dozens of recipes using coconut products.)

For a simple, elegant treat that couldn’t get much easier, I make up a batch of these chocolate truffles.  I normally use milk chocolate, but good quality semi-sweet or dark chocolate should also work.
