How to Make It

  1. Line a baking sheet or glass dish that can fit in your fridge with parchment paper. Blend almond butter, almonds, oats, and honey in a food processor. Once fully combined, roll into 1/2 inch balls. Place the balls on the baking sheet or in the dish, and let the truffles cool for 15 minutes in the fridge.
  2. Melt dark chocolate and coconut oil over a double broiler, or microwave on high in 20 second increments until the chocolate is melted and smooth. Cover the truffles with the melted chocolate and add any toppings.
  3. Freeze for 30 minutes to harden the chocolate. Remove from freezer, and store in your fridge.
